    This lineup addition sucks ass.  I would have never paid to see Hannah Montana.  Oh well, at least my money went to EB.
    Never heard of Miguel or Chris Stapleton, and I cant figure out what Chris Cornell song Ziggy Marley’s style would fit.
    CC and his daughter performed Redemption Song a few years back.

    That arrangement on FOBD is really cool.

    So honestly, guys, what are the odds that Eddie comes out and performs anything during the show? 
    Thought it was good before (especially when I saw the EB Foundation was one of the charities).  Now with all these performers, not so sure.
    Yep. Looks like Brandi Carlile will be helping out on Hunger Strike.

    Chris Stapleton and Brandi Carlile singing Hunger Strike will be perfect. I wonder if she’ll sing any other TOTD, I think she could do  Say Hello 2  Heaven  justice. 
  • Oh man I’m excited.

    If brandi carlile and Chris Stapleton perform hunger strike that means Ed won't be on stage. Hopefully he does something...no disrespect meant to those artists.

    I don’t think he was ever gonna do it, I think he’d find it way too hard to sing it with someone other than Chris now that he’s gone.

    Agreed. While I really wanted him to be there I never really expected it. It’s not about Ed, it’s about celebrating Chris

    Ed was never on the bill so you can't really call it a "no show" if he isn't there 
    The assumption is he will not be there
    “I know this song so well, I can smoke a cigarette, have a drink, brush my teeth, take a shit, and mow the lawn while singing it. But I'll only be doing a couple of those things during this version.”

    Ed is not going to be there per very reputable sources.  Should be a great evening though.

    I hope RA does studio versions of those tracks. They sound great.

    Wow am I glad I didnt get tickets for this. I’m sure it will be fun for all going but I have to say it feels a lot different since first announced. Adam Levine?? No thanks. 
  • I've got 2 side stage tickets for the Chris Cornell tribute show tonight.  Face value.  Can send through ticketmaster or can meet at the Forum. DM me, if interested.

    kinda weird Ed will not be there? Both friends, made music together, shared the same band mates. Seems a no brainer for him to go. Really no way to spin it, he should be a speaker, special guest or something. Am I missing something? Adam Lavine, Miley Cirus but no Eddie.

    not officially, and no ones knows.  I'm sure people will stream it somehow.

    Nights like tonight are why I'm glad cell phones are allowed into concerts.

    Maybe it would be too difficult for him. We may never know the reason, but I'm sure there was a good one. 
    I LOVE MUSIC.

  • it is odd Ed won't show considering he is ok with those Hollywood types now & how many random people are showing for this event. Maybe there's some behind the scene stuff going on that we don't know about since he missed the funeral. the absence just creates more questions.

    It's one artist among many decent ones.  I'm not a fan either, but I know he's a huge fan of Chris'  - he did a cover of Seasons after Chris died.  That said, I hope they've reserved a song as sublime as Seasons for a more worthy singer.

    As a reminder from the EV solo show in London in 2017 I was at:

    Sometimes it’s hard to concentrate these days. I was thinking about the history of this building and the Bowie history. So I started to think about that and my mind began to wander. It’s not a good.

    So I haven’t really been talking about some things and I kind of … now it feels like it’s conspicuous because I lost a really close friend of mine, somebody who …

    I’ll say this too, I grew up as four boys, four brothers and I lost my brother two years ago tragically like that in an accident and after that and losing a few other people, I’m not good at it, meaning I’m not…I have not been willing to accept the reality and that’s just how I’m dealing with it.

    No, no, no, no …

    So I want to be there for the family, be there for the community, be there for my brothers in my band, certainly the brothers in his band. But these things will take time but my friend is going to be gone forever and I will just have to …

    These things take time and I just want to send this out to everyone who was affected by it and they all back home and here appreciate it so deeply the support and the good thoughts of a man who was a … you know he wasn’t just a friend he was someone I looked up to like my older brother.

    About two days after the news, I think it was the second night we were sleeping in this little cabin near the water, a place he would’ve loved. And all these memories started coming in about 1:30 a.m. like woke me up. Like big memories, memories I would think about all the time. Like the memories were big muscles.

    And then I couldn’t stop the memories. And trying to sleep it was like if the neighbors had the music playing and you couldn’t stop it. But then it was fine because then it got into little memories. It just kept going and going and going. And I realized how lucky I was to have hours worth of … you know if each of these memories was quick and I had hours of them. How fortunate was I? And I didn’t want to be sad, wanted to be grateful not sad.

    I’m still thinking about those memories and I will live with those memories in my heart and I will love him forever.
