Watch Eddie Vedder Cover Chris Cornell’s ‘Seasons’ for the First Time
Between Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, Audioslave and his solo career, Chris Cornell left behind a large catalog of songs. One of his first solo tracks was "Seasons,' featured in Cameron Crowe's 1992 film Singles. Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder is currently touring on his own in Europe, and he chose to cover the song for the first time live.
Vedder and Cornell had a longstanding friendship that began in 1990 with Temple of the Dog. Vedder had recently been hired as the singer for a new band called Pearl Jam while the members were simultaneously working with Cornell on a tribute album in honor of Mother Love Bone's Andy Wood.
After the deaths of Kurt Cobain in 1994, Layne Staley in 2002 and Scott Weiland in 2015, Cornell and Vedder were among the last remaining prominent frontmen from the grunge era. Cornell followed suit in May of 2017, and there have only been a handful of times Vedder has acknowledged the loss publicly — including this one.
