Vicky Cornell Thanked Them
As part of Metallica’s Vinyl Club, they dropped a special vinyl record to pay tribute to late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell. It features the band’s covers of tracks from Soundgarden’s 1988 album, Ultramega OK – this includes All Your Lies and Head Injury which Metallica played at the I Am The Highway Chris Cornell tribute concert in 2019.
This release was produced by Greg Fidelman, mixed by Jim Monti and mastered by Billy Joe Bowers.
“Thank you for your musk, thank you for the words, for your thoughts… Thank you for the shows, thank you for the good times, for putting yourself out there,” drummer Lars Ulrich wrote. “And thank you, along with your fellow bandmates, for giving us something that inspired us, excited us, meant something, moved us, and not only gave us belief in the possibilities, but turned us the fuck on.”
“What an honour to have known you, to have shared the stage with you and created next level memories,” he continued, “and ultimately to have been included in the L.A. celebration of your life, which allowed us the opportunity to share with the world just how much your music and your brilliance meant to us.”
Cornell’s widow Vicky, daughter Toni and son Christopher took to Instagram to thank Metallica for the tribute offering.
