Watch Soundgarden members reunite for the first time since Chris Cornell’s death

Kim Thayil and Matt Cameron appeared at a tribute concert for the MC5

Soundgarden members Kim Thayil and Matt Cameron have reunited on stage for the first time since Chris Cornell‘s death.

Cornell, who was the frontman of both Soundgarden and Audioslave, died by suicide on May 18, 2017. He was 52 years old.

Guitarist Thayil and drummer Cameron are currently part of the supergroup MC50, which was formed by MC5 founder Wayne Kramer to celebrate the Detroit band’s 50th anniversary. Other musicians included in the band are Fugazi‘s Brendan Canty, King’s X’s Dug Pinnick, Was Not Was’ Don Was, and Zen Guerilla’s Marcus Durant. MC5’s Dennis Thompson is set to appear at select dates.


The Soundgarden members first appeared with MC50 at a show in Denmark last month (June 8), and now Kramer has shared live footage of the band. Watch the supergroup play ‘Come Together’ above.

Last year, Cameron paid tribute to Cornell on Facebook. “My dark knight is gone,” he wrote in memory of his bandmate. “Thank you for the incredible outpouring of kindness and love.”

A public vigil was held on the one-year anniversary of Cornell’s death at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Forever cemetery, where he is buried. Fans were invited to pay their respects to the late star by his widow, Vicky.

The musician’s daughter Toni also shared a previously unreleased duet with her father on Father’s Day 2018. She uploaded a recording of the pair singing Prince’s ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ and said recording the song with him was “a special and amazing experience I wish I could repeat 1000 times over and I know you would too.”
