Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer paid tribute to Chris Cornell at their Indianapolis concert Thursday night, 5/18/17, singing the acoustic “Singles” track “Seasons”.
Klinghoffer previously performed a Cornell-penned song in November 2016 in Vienna, Austria when he played a solo version of Temple of The Dog’s “All Night Thing” in honor of that band’s reunion tour.
Cornell apparently committed suicide by hanging on Wednesday night (May 18) after Soundgarden played a show in Detroit.
Some of the artists who paid tribute to Cornell on social media included Pearl Jam, Paul Stanley of KISS, Elton John, Jimmy Page, Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction, William DuVall from Alice In Chains, Brian Wilson, Lzzy Hale of Halestorm and Joe Perry of Aerosmith.
The surviving members of Soundgarden, drummer Matt Cameron, guitarist Kim Thayil and bassist Ben Shepherd have yet to make a public statement.
