Eddie Vedder And Guns N’ Roses Pay Tribute To Chris Cornell During Europe Concerts

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder was emotional Saturday during the opening stop on a European solo tour, his first gig since longtime friend and former collaborator Chris Cornell died on May 18.
Vedder made no direct mention of Cornell, the lead vocalist for Soundgarden and Audioslave, during his Amsterdam show in the Netherlands, according to Consequence of Sound, but he altered lyrics and addressed substance abuse, an issue that plagued Cornell prior to his suicide. During the set’s first song, “Long Road,” Vedder amended the words to say, “Without you, something is missing.”
