Prophets of Rage Honor Late Audioslave Bandmate Chris Cornell With Empty Mic Tribute in Berlin
Chris Cornell's death clearly hit his former bandmates in Audioslave pretty hard. After paying tribute to the late Soundgarden singer over the weekend with System of a Down singer Serj Tankian stepping in to sing "Like a Stone" at the Rock im Park festival in Germany, Rage Against the Machine bandmates Tom Morello, Brad Wilk and Tim Commerford took a moment during a Wednesday night (June 7) show in Berlin by their latest supergroup Prophets of Rage to remember their fallen comrade again.
As spotted by Alternative Nation, the trio played a mournful instrumental version of "Like a Stone" with a single spotlight shining down on an empty mic at center stage as the audience filled in on vocals.
Check out fan footage of the moment:
