Chris Cornell, Eddie Vedder’s Final ‘Hunger Strike’ Duet



When Soundgarden and Pearl Jam both appeared on the lineup for the 2014 Bridge School Benefit it meant that, not only would drummer Matt Cameron be pulling double duty, but a Temple of the Dog reunion was practically inevitable. It hadn’t happened since Pearl Jam’s 20th anniversary celebration in September of 2011 when Chris Cornell came out for a four-song Temple of the Dog mini set, and there was no way they were going to let him remain backstage and pass up the opportunity to do it again.  (MORE HERE)

Chris did perform with Temple Of The Dog in November in Seattle but Eddie wasn’t at that performance. However, below is a video clip of what would be Chris Cornell’s final performance of Hunger Strike with the band.

Going through some old videos in my phone and came across this….Realizing this video (November 21st at The Paramount Theater in Seattle) would be the last time that Cornell would perform "Hunger Strike" with Temple of The Dog. #RIP
