SYSTEM OF A DOWN vocalist Serj Tankian joined surviving members of AUDIOSLAVE during a PROPHETS OF RAGE show last night at the Rock Im Park Festival festival to pay respect to late Chris Cornell with a “Like a Stone” performance. Fan-filmed video footage can be seen below.
Cornell was known for his role as one of the architects of the 1990s grunge movement, for his extensive catalog as a songwriter and for his near four octave vocal range as well as his powerful vocal belting technique. He released four solo studio albums, Euphoria Morning (1999), Carry On (2007), Scream (2009), Higher Truth(2015) and the live album Songbook (2011). Cornell received a Golden Globe Award nomination for his song “The Keeper” which appeared in the film Machine Gun Preacher and co-wrote and performed the theme song to the James Bond film Casino Royale (2006), “You Know My Name“.
