“Would My Friends Stay For 5 Hours?” And Other Thoughts From Chris Cornell’s Tribute Show.

You can watch Chris Cornell’s tribute show in it’s entirety at the bottom of the page.

To think this extroardinarily talented man was so beloved, his tribute show lasted FIVE hours. Who else is loved that much?? Maybe Princess Diana? Update: the first video result from a google search of her service was coincidentally 5hrs and 39min… The point is, THAT is mother-loving LOVE. That is when you know you are worshipped.

Cornell’s tribute included a 42 song setlist (Thx Loudersound for posting it) with everyone you’d expect. Dave Grohl, Josh Homme, Tom Morello, Perry Ferrell, etc. and some you might not. For example, Miley Cyrus or Rita Wilson. Yep that Rita Wilson.

For the record, anyone who questions people who “deserved to be there” or didn’t? Probably wasn’t there and you know Rita Wilson sure as sh*t isn’t gonna show up at their tribute show. Are you going to be bent if Miley shows up at yours? Exactly.

Naturally, you can’t help but ponder your own mortality…

Do you think your friends would stay for a five hour tribute show?

Maybe a couple friends? I would never expect anyone to stay that long. 2hrs seems  reasonable.

If someone did organize a tribute show for you, how long should it be?

Going back to Miley Cyrus…if she showed up at my tribute show, I’d be blown away if she stayed for 30min. That’s probably 10min longer than some of my family members.

Ultimately, do you want anyone sticking around out of guilt/obligation? Me neither. Defeats the purpose.

Realistically, we might not even get a tribute show.

Yeah but then again, do we really need The Forum? Some would say Farmer Foley’s tribute show was equally as great.
