Wednesday night (aka last night) in Los Angeles, there was a five hour tribute to Chris Cornell and-honestly-I am a little jealous of the folks who went. A friend of mine was there and expressed some worries about the show, but ended up having a great time.

Via Consequence of Sound:
Members of Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, and Audioslave, as well as Foo Fighters, Metallica, Josh Homme, Fiona Apple, and Brandi Carlile were all on hand to pay tribute to Chris Cornell as part of an all-star tribute concert held in Los Angeles on Wednesday night.

Here are some highlights!
Last night happened to be the final Soundgarden performance, which-sadly, is how it should be.
Chris' daughter, Toni was joined onstage by Ziggy Marley for a cover of "Redemption Song." If you feel like crying...
Say what you will about Miley Cyrus, but she KILLED it with Temple of the Dog to do "Say Hello 2 Heaven."
Blah blah blah I am biased, Dave Grohl did a great job covering Audioslave's "Show Me How to Live."
I seriously want to share EVERYTHING with you, so here! Probably not worth worrying about visuals in the next videos, but they are pretty cool to listen to.
