Corey Taylor has paid tribute to Chris Cornell by covering Audioslave’s Getaway Car.

The Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist uploaded a short video of him at the piano playing the 2002 track to Instagram with the caption: “A little tribute to a sorely missed artist. #Cornell.”

Cornell died in May 2017, with Stone Sour honouring the vocalist with a cover of Soundgarden classic Outshined during their set at Rock On The Range in Columbus in the hours following his death.

Taylor told the crowd: “He was one of my favourite singers, he was one of my favourite all-time songwriters – and the fact that he’s gone makes this world a little bit smaller.”

Watch Taylor’s tribute below.

Stone Sour will embark on a European tour throughout June and July, while Slipknot are currently putting the pieces in place for what will be their sixth studio album.
