Chris Cornell’s Bandmates Reveal What They ‘Couldn’t Believe’ About Final Performance

Prophets of Rage members Brad Wilk and Chuck D discussed January’s Anti-Inaugural Ball show in a new Metal Injection interview.

At the Ball, Audioslave reunited for a three song set and Cornell joined Prophets of Rage to perform Rage Against The Machine’s “Killing In The Name.” The concert was held the same day as President Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Wilk said, “It wasn’t even a thought in my head that it was the last performance with him. However, I appreciated the moment when it was happening. His passing caught us all by surprise. The good thing is he left so much incredible music behind and his legacy is still in tact. He was a sweet-hearted guy at the end of the day. He’ll be really missed. We cover ‘Like a Stone’ as a tribute sometimes in our sets and I think we’ll be doing that tonight.”

Chuck D added, “We played with Chris at the Anti-Inaugural Ball. It was great. I couldn’t believe a guy that tall and long could jump off a stage like he did. And what I mean to say by that is everybody looked at him as a guy who crossed a threshold having a good time, but things are always day to day for everybody.”

      I think he means that it seemed like Chris had a great life and was happy so it was hard to believe he would kill himself.

  • I hope Cornell didn’t start using drugs hard again because he believed all the liberal garbage about Trump.

    • BubbaClinton

      Word.

      • John

        Liberal garbage aka the truth…. let’s stick to the topic and not show us all how woefully ignorant yous two are.

        • suz

          uh, we three, then.

          just like a leftist to try and redefine what someone else is saying, projecting their own inabiity to defend their positions by just saying ‘aka’ ain’t a defense.

          i reiterate what ‘johnny’ termed ‘liberal garbage’ practically redundant; practically one word. how’s that for redefining.

          and another thing: cc played the ANTI-inaugural ball .. QUITE ON TOPIC.

          ready, set, go ‘john.’

      • suz

        word, ditto.

  • Renee Reed

    I’ll never believe Chris or Chester killed themselves, i think they got to close to exposing some powerful people in the sex trade business & we murdered.

    • Diana

      What proof do you have? Your “gut feeling”?

    • Christina Gunn

      Ditto! 100% 😢

  • Jeanna

    RIP Chris 😕
