Temple Of The Dog And Soundgarden Reunite At Pearl Jam Show

by Chaz on April 19, 2011

The much-lauded one-time group, Temple Of The Dog, had a reunion of sorts last night at the Pearl Jam concert in Los Angeles, according to a Rolling Stone report. It all happened midway through the set when Chris Cornell appeared on stage and the band performed their classic hit, “Hunger Strike“.

The studio track, which was Pearl Jam vocalist Eddie Vedder’s introduction to the world in 1991, which features Cornell on lead vocals, reached #4 on the Billboard charts.

That’s not all that happened at the show, however. Even though they didn’t perform, Kim Thayil and Ben Shepherd, who were Cornell’s bandmates in Soundgarden, accompanied him to see former Soundgarden drummer, Matt Cameron, perform in Pearl Jam. This marks the first time since Soundgarden broke up that the band was spotted in one place publicly.

Rounding out the amazing evening was another surprise from another one of the biggest names from the 90’s. During the encore performance of Pearl Jam’s smash hit, “Alive“, Alice In Chains guitarist, Jerry Cantrell joined the group on stage and helped Mike McCready out with lead guitar duties.

All in all, it was a spectacular evening for the fans on hand at the show in LA.
