We’ll never get used to the tragedy of losing some of our most celebrated music icons. When someone as gifted as Chris Cornell passes on, it’s difficult to accept.
With an incredible body of work including Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, Audioslave, as well as his solo work, Cornell has left a legacy of memorable music.
While he is no longer with us, we can still enjoy his material that lives on through other talented musicians.
Watch these videos below to witness some of today’s best cover musicians perform classic Chris Cornell masterpieces.
