Montreal! You wanted the best? Well they couldn't make it... #GNRinMontreal
Artists continue to pay their respects to the late Soundgarden frontman.
When a music legend dies, their peers come out to celebrate their fallen brother or sister in the only way they know how: performing. Since Soundgardan frontman Chris Cornell committed suicide on May 18th 2017, artists everywhere continue to dedicate their live performances to him in the form of touching tributes.

Here are just a few of the best Chris Cornell tributes so far:
Guns N' Roses have grossed $230m from their 'Not In This Lifetime' tour and are set to continue riding the gravy train when the tour kicks off again next month.
GUNS N' ROSES have grossed $230m from their 'Not In This Lifetime' tour so far.
The 'Sweet Child O Mine' hitmakers reformed with Axl Rose, Duff McKagan and Slash at the helm and played 25 concerts in 21 stadiums last year.
Their eight shows alone in New Zealand and Australia have been a huge financial success, raking in $38m, according to Billboard.

Stradlin took to Twitter to say that Axl and the band "didn't want to split the loot equally".
Having marked himself out as the only original member of Guns N’ Roses not to participate in the current reunion, guitarist Izzy Stradlin has drawn speculation from Gunners fans as to why he’s refused to play along.
Finally, he’s broken his silence on social media by replying to lead singer Axl Rose’s comments last week, saying that the financial split for the tour wasn’t satisfactory for him.
Rose had told a Brazilian TV station on Tuesday, ahead of Guns N’ Roses’ string of South American tour dates, that 54 year old Stradlin just wasn’t up for it, and didn’t go into details except to imply that he was disorganised and unreliable.

Guns N' Roses were detained at the Canadian border last week for gun possession but they're adamant the weapon didn't belong to them.
GUNS N' ROSES were detained at the Canadian border last week after they were caught with a gun in their possession.
The hard rock band were stopped at the airport in Toronto last Friday (15.07.16) ahead of their gig later that day in the city in Ontario, and found with the weapon on them.
Frontman Axl Rose later told the audience at the gig held at the Rogers Centre: ''We weren't exactly arrested. We were detained. They [the custom officers] were very nice, they were very understanding. You know, it happens: You can forget you have a fucking gun. It wasn't my gun.''

Official confirmation finally arrives.
It's official; GUNS N' ROSES featuring Axl Rose and Slash will re-unite for the 2016 Coachella Music And Arts Festival in April, marking their first performance together in twenty years. It's probably one of the most seminal reunions in rock history - and one that many thought would never happen.
There's been speculation of a reunion for weeks and now the news has finally been confirmed. Despite years of animosity between Slash and Axl Rose in particular, the pair have appeared to clear the air - at least for the sake of the band and their fans. Original bassist Duff McKagan will also join the group and, while there's no word yet on guitarist Izzy Stradlin, sources told Consequence Of Sound that Matt Sorum will replace original drummer Steven Adler.

We're pretty sure that the Iron Maiden lead singer speaks for a great many people in the music industry.
In a new interview with Le Journal de Montréal, the rock veteran recalled an incident on May 16th, 1988 when the Gunners, then on the rise to their meteoric success with their debut album Appetite For Destruction, opened for the more established Iron Maiden in Quebec City in Canada.

The Guns ’n’ Roses frontman and guitarist Slash are though not to have spoken since 1996.
Guns ’n’ Roses frontman Axl Rose and former member Slash are reportedly on speaking terms again, nearly 20 years after the guitarist’s exit from the band. In an interview with Swedish website Aftonbladet, Slash revealed that the two have finally buried the hatchet, saying that the reunion was ‘probably way overdue’.
Slash has said he’s buried the hatchet with Axl Rose.
When asked during the interview if he and Rose had ‘made friends again’ Slash said, "It was probably way overdue, you know. But it's very cool at this point to dispel some of that negative stuff that was going on for so long."

View of books on Display - GUNS N' ROSES basssist Duff Mckagan signs copies of his new book 'How to Be a Man (And Other Illusions)' at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino at The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - Hollywood, Florida, United States - Friday 15th May 2015
The frontman was recently named as the world best singer due to his impressive vocal range.
Axl Rose is infamous for many reasons. His constant late appearances, sometimes taking to the stage almost two hours after their billed start, means every recent Guns n’ Roses tour is dogged by disgruntled fans and a swathe of bad press. The singer is notorious for his cantankerous temperament which has resulted in numerous cancelled appearances and YouTube-worthy angry rants that would give even Kanye West’s irritable soliloquys a run for their money. He is so surrounded by criticism that it is no surprise the frontman’s vocal attributes are often overlooked.
Rose has posted a bashful response to the award of "World's Best Singer"
Now, the singer has been named as the best vocalist of all time on a recently published chart, an accolade that is extremely misleading given the nature of the basis for which the award has been meted out to the rock legend. The award is based on versatility in vocal range rather than any consideration for tone, grain or strength which are commonly considered as the most endearing vocal traits.

A police investigation has been launched in Las Vegas to determine whether LVPD officers went too far in helping the guitarist propose to his fiance
Daren Jay 'DJ' Ashba, one of the many people brought in to replace Slash in GUNS N' ROSES, posted a photo on to his Instagram this Saturday (10 August) of himself and his girlfriend, Colombian actress and model Nathalia Henao, whilst kitted out in helicopter helmets and microphones. In his caption for the photo, the guitarist thanked the Las Vegas police department for "the most amazing" private helicopter tour over the city, adding that the ride finished in a field at police headquarters, where he proposed and celebrated with "a bottle of the bubble stuff."
Ashba and Henao have been together since 2009
As lovely and romantic as all this sounds, the Instagram message has begun to cause a stir because it seems to imply that the LVPD gave the guitarist some very special treatment rather than, you know, being police officers. The LVPD have now begun an enquiry into the incident to determine whether employees went too far in helping the guitarist propose to his girlfriend, especially considering that he isn't even Izzy Stradlin, never mind Slash.
