As much as I love Soundgarden, Audioslave was what introduced me to Chris Cornell. Sad I'll never get to see them.
I saw the Prophets of Rage on Sunday. It's Morello, Timmy C, and Dilk with Chuck D and B Real singing. They play a bunch of RAtM songs and some new stuff. They are really good BTW and currently touring small venues.
Anywho, Chuck D and B Real leave the stage and three remaining play Like A Stone with no singer, just a dark stage with spotlight on an empty mic stand. Goosebumps. The crowd sung the whole song.
TL/DR Surviving members of Audioslave play like a stone live in concert in a "missing man" formation.
The song is about waiting to die. Incredibly sad and cryptic
One of my favorite songs. May Chris rest in peace.
Always loved the guitar solo in this song. RIP Chris.
Gasoline came on yesterday at work and I got kind of teary-eyed. Still sucks.....big time. Loved Audioslave.
Tom Morello though.. there's a good reason why I adore audioslave and ratm.
Not just tom, either, tbh.
Great post OP. I actually love Audioslave more than Soundgarden.
The combination of Chris's lyrics and voice were a crutch for me growing up, now they remind me of how far I've come. Damn I'm gona miss Audioslave
I genuinely am not ready to listen to Chris yet. I seen him last year solo and it was the best single performance ever. Want to hold on to that memory for as long as I can.
When I was younger, around 6-8ish my dad blessed me with Like a Stone and Audioslave. It was our song and we would always sing it on car rides when he picked me up from my mom and when he brought me back. It's a special song that holds good memories in my heart from when I was young. I didn't understand the lyrics or the meaning of the song, it just sounded amazing to listen to in the summer.
Here I am now 22, sadly Cornell passed away and I've listened to Like a Stone nearly weekly. I know the lyrics and I understand them, it still holds a place in my heart even though my relationship with my dad has fallen into pieces. This is still one of my favorite songs, not because it still sounds amazing, but because of how it always brings me good vibes and reminds me of better days and to keep pushing through the dirt.
