TEMPLE OF THE DOG Reunion Among Surprises At PEARL JAM Benefit Gig

PEARL JAM were joined by a host of famous musical friends on stage last night (Oct. 28) in Santa Barbara, Calif., at a benefit for the Louis Warschaw Prostate Cancer Center at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Among the guests appearing on stage during the performance were PEARL JAM's former drummer Jack Irons, singer/songwriter Jack Johnson, veteran guitarist Lyle Workman, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS guitarist John Frusciante, and AUDIOSLAVE frontman Chris Cornell (ex-SOUNDGARDEN) for a rare reunion of TEMPLE OF THE DOG.

Cornell was reportedly granted a two-song solo acoustic set of "Can't Change Me" and AUDIOSLAVE's "Like a Stone" before proceeding to reprise his duet with PEARL JAM singer Eddie Vedder on TEMPLE OF THE DOG's "Hunger Strike" and a nearly 10-minute version of the group's "Reach Down".

The Santa Barbara show capped a week-long, four-show run of acoustic charity concerts in Seattle and outside San Francisco.
