Wednesday night The Forum in Los Angeles hosted a star studded night of music and memories. I Am the Highway: A Tribute to Chris Cornell, brought out some of his closest musical friends to perform.
Jimmy Kimmel hosted most of the five-hour tribute concert that took the sold-out crowd through Cornell’s career and catalog. Members of Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple of the Dog-- as well as Foo Fighters, Metallica and others played to benefit the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation.
The surviving members of Audioslave (minus bassist Tim Commeford) did a five-song set with a rotating cast of guest singers (Perry Farrell on "Cochise," Juliette Lewis on "Be Yourself," Tim McIlrath of Rise Against for "Set It Off," Brandi Carlile on "Like a Stone" and Dave Grohl on "Show Me How To Live") and bassists (including Black Sabbath's Geezer Butler, Chris Chaney and Metallica's Robert Trujillo.)
Dave Grohl closed out his set with a solo version of "Everlong" saying, "With all this love, the one person who could have appreciated it the most couldn’t be here tonight. So I want to play one more song for him tonight."
