Watch Corey Taylor pay tribute to ‘sorely missed’ Chris Cornell with new cover

Cornell died last May at the age of 52

Corey Taylor has paid tribute to Chris Cornell in the form of a cover of one of the musician’s tracks.

Cornell, who fronted both Soundgarden and Audioslave, died by suicide on May 18, 2017. He was found dead in his hotel room shortly after performing with the former in Detroit. He was 52 years old.

Slipknot and Stone Sour musician Taylor uploaded a cover of Audioslave’s ‘Getaway Car’ to his Instagram page last night. The post was accompanied by the caption: “A little tribute to a sorely missed artist #cornell”. Watch it below.

Taylor previously paid tribute to Cornell on the day the news of his death broke. On stage with Stone Sour in Columbus, Ohio, he and his bandmates covered Soundgarden’s ‘Outshined’.

Pearl Jam also recently honoured the late musician with a cover of ‘Come Back’ during a performance in Chile. “This is for Chris,” Eddie Vedder announced ahead of the rendition.

Meanwhile, a previously unheard track by Cornell was released last month. ‘You Never Really Knew My Mind’ features on the ‘Johnny Cash: Forever Words’ album, which sees unseen poems, lyrics, and letters written by the icon put to music by a host of stars.

One of Cornell’s last solo recordings before his death, the Soundgarden frontman recorded the track at Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee. Speaking about Cash’s influence on him at the time, Cornell said: “I met the man once or twice in my life, and he was so gracious and he was such an influence on me as a musician.

“And he also covered a song that I wrote [Soundgarden’s ‘Rusty Cage’]. Since that time, I’ve felt like he’s maybe one of the bigger presences in my life, in terms of artists that I’m a fan of.”
