Umphrey’s McGee Honor Chris Cornell in Norfolk

Umphrey’s McGee tipped their cap to the late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell last night in Norfolk, VA as they returned to the road with a debut cover of Temple of the Dog’s “Hunger Strike.”

The song, played in the middle of “Der Bluten Kat,” was the major early hit for the supergroup Temple of the Dog, which came together in the wake of Mother Love Bone frontman Andrew Wood’s death. Cornell, Wood’s longtime roommate, teamed up with the members of Pearl Jam for a tribute record that they would tour around 25 years later.

Watch the full performance from Umphrey’s here.
