THE PRETTY RECKLESS Pays Tribute To CHRIS CORNELL With 'Like A Stone' Performance In Camden (Video)
May 21, 2017
THE PRETTY RECKLESS paid tribute to Chris Cornell by performing a cover version of AUDIOSLAVE's "Like A Stone" on May 20 at the Philadelphia rock radio station WMMR's annual MMR-B-Q at BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey. Check out fan-filmed video footage below.
THE PRETTY RECKLESS opened for SOUNDGARDEN in Detroit Wednesday night, a couple of hours before Cornell apparently committed suicide by hanging. He was 52 years old.
THE PRETTY RECKLESS frontwoman Taylor Momsen wrote in an Instagram post that her "heart is broken."
"Still in a state of shock," she added. "I have no words right now except my heart pours out to his beautiful family and friends."
THE PRETTY RECKLESS also posted a tribute to Cornell on the band's Twitter, writing: "Our deepest sympathies to family and new friends we just had the privilege to join for an all-too-brief moment. Our hearts are with you."
THE PRETTY RECKLESS postponed its May 19 show at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey as a result of Cornell's passing.
Early Wednesday, just hours before Cornell's death, Momsen praised SOUNDGARDEN, writing on Instagram: "Tonight is our final show with Soundgarden at the Fox Theater in Detroit, great band, great people, wonderful crew, new family, thanks to all #tprtour2017."
Momsen is a longtime fan of SOUNDGARDEN, having previously said that the Cornell-fronted outfit was the band for which she most wanted to open for.
