Stone Sour’s Corey Taylor & Christian Martucci Take Part In Chris Cornell Tribute At Rock On The Range

Rock On The Range organizers put together a moving tribute to honor the late Chris Cornell, whose band Soundgarden were originally set to headline Friday night (May 19). The tribute took place directly after Live’s set, which included a performance of Audioslave‘s “I Am the Highway.” It began with the screens playing imagery and audio from the singer’s career, and once that ended, Stone Sour’s Corey Taylor and Christian Martucci took the stage for covers of Pink Floyd‘s “Wish You Were Here” and Temple Of The Dog’s “Hunger Strike.” The tribute concluded with more video and audio from Cornell’s various projects, along with his isolated vocals for “Black Hole Sun.” It was an emotional and late evening for festival goers who had spent a lot of the day taking cover due to severe storms, which are still plaguing the festival today, but festival organizers did what they could to honor a legend.
