Late last year we saw Chris Cornell perform his track from the Machine Gun Preacher Soundtrack, "The Keeper" live on Kimmel. Last night he made sure we didn't forget his gentle ways with a performance of the same track on Leno. This time Alain Johannes wasn't on hand to lend his guitar skills but the addition of some strings will surely raise a few hairs on your neck. Beautiful. Check it out above courtesy of The Audio perv, who else!
Chris Cornell is readying the release of his new live effort which goes by the name of, Songbook, and it shows a different side to the big man. This cut titled "Cleaning My Gun" will show you a piece of Cornell you may not be familiar with but it's definitely one you should get to know. Peel back the curtains and give it a go.
Songbook is set to be released as part of Record Store Day's Black Friday on November the 25th.
Last night Chris Cornell appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform one of his many solo tracks. Choosing to play Machine Gun Preacher soundtrack donation "The Keeper" you can watch his performance at the top in which he's assisted by the incredibly talented hands of Alain Johannes, who you may recognise from QOTSA or his solo work. Either way the duo of acoustic guitars bounce of one another delivering a solid that can be enjoyed at the top via The Audio Perv.

Pearl Jam played a show over the weekend to celebrate their staying together for 20 years. Not only were the big PJ headlining but the likes of Queens of the Stoneage, The Strokes, Mudhoney and Temple of the Dog made appearances (reformed). It seems like this was the show to be at over the weekend and the guys over at CoS have found some of the best bits for us to enjoy. And boy is there a lot of them. Chris Cornell came on stage to help perform a cover of Mother Love Bone, Julian Casablancas put his vox to good use on "Not For You. Next up, Josh Homme front man of QOTSA came on stage to help on "In The Moonlight" and then Liam Finn, The Swell Season’s Glen Hansard, and Mudhoney’s Dan Peters joined the band for “Who You Are”. All in all night one of the PJ20 festival was a complete success wouldn't you say!?
As well as all of the above, Josh Homme helped Strokes put "New York City Cops" and then later Eddie Vedder joined QOTSA on stage for perform "Make It Wit Chu" and "Little Sister". So, without further ado, first video at the top is Temple of the Dog performing "Reach Down" with the rest of the footage labelled after the jump.
