Chris Cornell’s Star-Studded Tribute Show Is Absolutely Brilliant

It was one of the biggest nights of rock last night in L.A, as a number of rock bands paid tribute to the late great Chris Cornell. The 'I Am The Highway' concert had been named “an epic night of music, taking fans on an unforgettable journey through Chris’s legendary career and catalogue.” Chris Cornell’s friends and family said many heartfelt tributes but the one that captured his essence best improbably came from Jack Black. “Sometimes Chris Cornell would sing a note that didn’t exist,” he told the sold-out crowd. “Sometimes [he] would sing a note that was between two real notes, and it would open a portal into another dimension. I don’t know if that’s true. Like, maybe it was probably a

Grohl himself had a fall du
