Tom Morello pays tribute to Chris Cornell at Seattle Concert
Tom Morello played Rage Against the Machine’s “Killing in the Name” as part of the encore for his show at Seattle’s Neptune Theatre on Wednesday, November 6. After inviting a group of fans up on stage, he gave a short, arch intro for the track: “For our final selection tonight, we’re gonna play an old gospel number. If you know this one, sing along.” Morello then followed “Killing” with a cover of John Lennon’s “Power to the People.”
Morello, currently touring in support of his solo album The Atlas Underground, also paid tribute to his late Audioslave bandmate Chris Cornell with a medley of the band’s tracks earlier in the night. He also taped a message reading “Cornell Forever” to the back of his guitar.
