Cornell, a major figure in the grunge-rock scene of the 1990s, died in Detroit in 2017 aged 52. But Chris did something more extraordinary.

Each ticket purchased online for the I Am The Highway: A Tribute to Chris Cornellat The Forum will include a copy of Cornell's self-titled career retrospective album.

The tribute concert was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, with proceeds going towards The Chris and Vicky Cornell foundation. And that legacy, and his influence, will live for generations to come. The lengthy roster of high-profile musicians who took the stage included Foo Fighters, Metallica, Ryan Adams, Miley Cyrus, Josh Homme, Fiona Apple, Miguel, Brandi Carlile, The Melvins, Chris Stapleton, Perry Farrell, Peter Frampton, and many more. Tickets will benefit the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation and the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to raising funds and awareness for this painful and debilitating genetic disorder. Other bands like Metallica and the Foo Fighters performed Soundgarden songs and some of their own classic hits during their short sets.

"I'm honored to be here tonight", she said. Despite Cornell's relative lack of experience, she sounded great singing backed by Marley's acoustic guitar. "It was born from a passion and a love for what he did", she said. "We are saddened that he's gone". None of them was more special, however, than when Toni Cornell, Chris' daughter, took the stage with Ziggy Marley to perform "Redemption Song".

But Pearl Jam and Temple of the Dog guitarist Stone Gossard said, "I think we're all here for the same reason. So this song is for him".
