During their headline set at Columbus’ Rock On The Range festival — which Soundgarden was scheduled to headline in 2017 prior to Cornell’s death — Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan reportedly told the crowd on Sunday night, “We’d like to dedicate our entire set to the friends and family of Chris Cornell.”
At the very same festival, Alice In Chains honoured the rocker by covering two Soundgarden songs on Friday — ‘Hunted Down’ and ‘Boot Camp’. Watch footage of their performances, below.
Cornell died on 18th May 2017, at the age of 52. Earlier this month, Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron shared an emotional tribute to Cornell, saying, “Can’t believe it’s already been one year since I lost my musical soulmate and special friend Chris Cornell.”
Cornell was also honoured with a cover of ‘Black Hole Sun’ at the 2018 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony.
