Since we’re on the Temple of the Dog reunion anyway, I just looked for Chris Cornell covering other artists. A month or two ago I had him here doing Nothing Compares 2 U and Lady Stardust as tributes to Prince and David Bowie.
First, we have his own version of Billie Jean, of course, for Michael Jackson. His powerful version however stresses the way to do it, in the same manner Jimi Hendrix did All Along The Watchtower by Bob Dylan.
And we have his take on Eagle’s Hotel California and his own Audioslave’s Like A Stone here.
His colleague’s (Pearl Jam’s) Better Man.
Now we have his version of I Will Always Love You. I have no idea if it’s a tribute to Whitney Houston or Dolly Parton, or simply a cover of it.
