Chris Cornell Lets a Fan Come Onstage to Play “Outshined”

Getting a fan to be part of a performance is nothing new.  Green Day did it on almost every show on their last tour.  Metallica has been known to haul someone onstage.  And most famously, a guy named Scot Halpin subbed in for a passed out Keith Moon at a show in San Francisco on November 20, 1973.

Still, it’s cool when it happens.  Someone gets to be a hero–if just for one day.

One thought on “Chris Cornell Lets a Fan Come Onstage to Play “Outshined”

  • VERY cool … to get a chance to do something like this for such a well respected male vocalist/songwriter is fantastic and even more of a class act by Chris Cornell. It's very encouraging and enforces my opinion of a lot of self-important pop artists today.
    If Chris Cornell can stay in amongst 'the people', nobody else has an excuse not to.
