LOS ANGELES, CA - JANUARY 20: Singer Chris Cornell performs at Prophets of Rage and Friends' Anti Inaugural Ball at the Taragram Ballroom on January 20, 2017 in Los Angeles, California; LAS VEGAS, NV - MAY 09: Singer Chester Bennington of Linkin Park performs onstage during Rock in Rio USA at the MGM Resorts Festival Grounds on May 9, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington will forever be linked.

Cornell would’ve turned 55 today (July 20), while Bennington passed away two years ago today.  Their shocking suicide deaths were separated by mere months and is made only more painful considering Bennington sang at Cornell’s funeral.

Both men were unique voices for their generation that stood out from the rest.  What better way to honor them than by looking back to when they joined forces and shared a stage back in 2008 when Cornell and Linkin Park toured together.

Here are Cornell and Bennington performing the Temple of the Dog hit “Hunger Strike.”
