Chris Cornell recently welcomed a fan to the stage for the moment that every guitarist dreams about, getting to perform a song with one of your rock idols. See the Soundgarden vocalist belt out an acoustic version of ‘Outshined’ with a fan on guitar below.
Chris Cornell is currently making the rounds on his solo tour overseas, where he plays a mixture of songs from his expansive body of work including tracks from Soundgarden, Audioslave and his solo career. While performing at Newcastle City Hall in the United Kingdom, Cornell called upon one very lucky fan for some assistance with a SG classic.
The recipient of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity was Ben Dawson, who asked Cornell if he can play with him and proceeded to rock ‘Outshined’ — a song you generally wouldn’t think of as an acoustic jam. However, Dawson knocked the song out of the park during the five-minute, jealousy-inspiring performance. “Most awesome moment of my life!” commented Dawson on Grunge Report.
Cornell was set to continue the tour in Torino, Italy last night (June 26), but announced that the show will be rescheduled due to a stomach virus. There is no word on whether any further dates will be rescheduled as of yet.
Meanwhile, Cornell’s latest work with Soundgarden is in the final stages of preparation and is expected to hit stores this October. Revolver editor Brandon Geist recently heard a few tracks off of the album and tweeted, “3 very heavy and rockin, one almost could be AC/DC, 3 more mellow, expansive. Psychedelic touches: sitar, organ…”Later adding that the band is still deciding on a single and mastering the other half of the album.

James Schmid from Waterloo, Ontorio. Alter Bridge provides everything you'd expect from a rock radio hit, while also giving die hard AB fans everything they expect from their beloved band with My Champion.
The song opens with a guitar riff reminiscent of Def Leppards "Photograph" before hitting you square in the face with a "heavy for radio" sound that remains catchy without disappointing their "we like it fast and hard" fans. Their fan base, and music ranges in such a wide spectrum, it…
Cane Hill brought their Louisiana industrial sound to the
Chameleon Club in Lancaster, Pennsylvania on March 11th of 2017. It
was a Saturday night which meant the people of PA were ready to party! There is

people. As they took the stage as the opener of the “Let’s Get
Abducted Tour” the crowd was anxious. They played multiple songs from their
2016 summer released album “Smile” and to the bands surprise most of the folks

Atlanta-based indie rock trio Mansell has released the official music video for their single "Ghost." The track comes for their latest record Mantra, an eight-song offering that landed in the iTunes Top 100 Alt Chart and led the band to a support slot with Butch Walker earlier this year.
The video was conceptualized by a friend of the band, John Gray. "We all feel like kin to one another, so the understanding and chemistry there on multiple levels was a comfort in letting another artist interpret your music emotionally the way John did," says vocalist Holden Fincher. "He essentially dove into the song for an extensive period, and analyzed it in depth. He would call or we’d be together and he would just say how many times he had really listened to that song to really breathe it in and know it, and we’d discuss every little thing about it. The emotional pulls of the song itself, as well as who we are as artists, and what the project ‘Mantra’ was to us were put …
