Along with yesterday being the five year anniversary since the late Chester Bennington passed away, it was also Chris Cornell’s birthday (he would have been 58 years old). In fact, earlier this year was also the five year anniversary since Cornell’s passing.

The late Linkin Park and Soundgarden singers, respectively, were very close friends, and to honor both of these amazingly talented individuals, we wanted to share a special video we came across. Uploaded via the YouTube channel Linkin Park Live Archive, there is a video that features a 2008 live show where Bennington and Cornell performed together. Per the description associated with this video:

“Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington performing Hunger Strike (originally by Temple Of The Dog) live at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Woodlands, Texas on August 24, 2008 as part of Projekt Revolution Tour.”

You can check out the video of Bennington and Cornell’s performance below:

It is so heartbreaking that Chris and Chester are no longer are with us; the world will forever remember their incredible art and kind hearts. We hope you both are at peace <3

Back in May, we shared a video that involved Chester Bennington and Linkin Park performing a live tribute to that of Chris Cornell. Just a couple days after the passing of the late Soundgarden singer, Linkin Park released their seventh studio album, One More Light. In promoting that album, Linkin Park performed on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show back in 2017. The band played the title track off that album, but prior to starting, the late Linkin Park singer shared with the crowd that the song would be dedicated to their dear friend Chris Cornell. If you want to check out the video of that touching tribute, follow the link below.
