With support from two of the best tribute bands around, Alice Remains (Alice In Chains) and Dead And Bloated (Stone Temple Pilots).
Temple Of The Dog was formed in 1990, conceived by Chris Cornell of Soundgarden as a tribute to his friend, Andrew Wood, lead singer of Mother Love Bone and Malfunkshun. Wood died earlier the same year from a heroin overdose. Also joining Cornell were Wood’s former bandmates Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament, as well as Mike McCready, Eddie Vedder (who all went on to form Pearl Jam together) and Matt Cameron (Soundgarden, who later also went onto to Pearl Jam).
They recorded and released a self-titled album in April 1991 including two songs Cornell had written about Wood, ‘Reach Down’ and ‘Say Hello 2 Heaven’.
The band played a handful of shows in the early 90s and reformed in 2016 for the 25th Anniversary of the album.
Sadly we lost Chris Cornell on May 18 2017. The musicians playing the Temple Of The Dog set have also all played as part of both of the A Celebration of Chris Cornell nights we’ve had at The Bendigo Hotel. The idea for this Temple Of The Dog night came from one of the Chris Cornell show rehearsals.
