Corey Taylor Pays Tribute to Chris Cornell at ROTR

Corey Taylor took the stage at Rock On The Range in Columbus, Ohio Friday night to pay tribute to Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell who was found dead after their show in Detroit Wednesday night. Weather conflicts forced the festival to evacuate around 3:30pm and organizers seemed determined to reopen before the night was done. Around 7:00 the gates reopened and the curfew was extended so Friday night's show could go on. Rock On The Range wrapped Friday night with a nearly 30 minute tribute to Chris Cornell including Corey Taylor taking the stage to perform Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" and Temple Of The Dog's "Hunger Strike".

RIP Chris Cornell.
