Chris Cornell’s last performance was a song about death
As if Chris Cornell’s death wasn’t shocking enough, it turns out the singer’s final performance included singing about death.
To close out Cornell’s last show in Detroit, Soundgarden performed “Slaves and Bulldozers,” an original song, mixed with Led Zeppelin’s “In My Time of Dying.” According to NME, this was a regular Soundgarden tradition, but it clearly takes on new significance after Cornell’s death.
In my time of dying, want nobody to mourn
All I want for you to do is take my body home
Well, well, well, so I can die easy
Cornell’s cause of death is still unknown.
