Corey Taylor paid tribute to Chris Cornell at Stone Sour’s show last night.
“We lost a rock and roll brother today. As you know, we lost Chris Cornell from Soundgarden today sadly. He was one of my favorite singers, he was one of my favorite fucking all time favorite songwriters, and the fact that he is gone makes this world a little bit smaller. So one time, make some fucking noise for Chris Cornell.
I had the pleasure of hanging out with him, and he was honestly one of the coolest motherfuckers I had ever met in my fucking life. So we decided that we were going to pay a little tribute to Mr. Cornell tonight. We learned this song today. In fact, I’m not completely sure that we’ve [learned] it. But goddamn it, we’re going to give it our fucking best, I’m going to give it my best.
I’m no Chris Cornell, but goddammit, if you know the words, you fucking help us sing it.”
