‘I Am The Highway’, a tribute to Chris Cornell, will take place on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at The Forum in Los Angeles. The event will feature performances from the members of Soundgarden, Temple Of The Dog and Audioslave, plus Foo Fighters, Metallica, Ryan Adams and many more. Tickets go on sale this Friday, November 16 at 10am pt and all proceeds will benefit EBMRF.

The Chris Cornell social media accounts have uploaded a preview of the new music video for “When Bad Does Good”. “When Bad Does Good” is a previously unreleased song that premiered in September, and appears on the new Chris Cornell career retrospective album. Chris Cornell’s son Chris Cornell Jr. stars in the music video in the clip, riding a bike and delivering newspapers in Seattle. Chris Cornell Jr. previously appeared in the music video for “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart”, the lead single off of Higher Truth in 2015.

The video for that was western themed, with Cornell Jr. watching as his father appeared to be hung. Due to the way Chris Cornell died in May 2017, the music video was pulled down out of respect. Cornell Jr. also appeared onstage with his father numerous times at Songbook shows, and even wore a ‘Black Hole Son’ shirt. Toni Cornell performed with Chris Sr. in New York in 2015, and released a posthumous duet cover of “Nothing Compares 2 U” earlier this year.
