It’s flashback time for this CoolCounterMusic. Usually we try to post up some new bands or acts but when old music comes this good then why not revisit it?

Temple of the Dog was an American rock band that formed in Seattle in 1990. It featured vocalist Chris Cornell of Soundgarden as a tribute to the late Andrew Wood, lead singer of Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone.

The line-up included Stone Gossard on rhythm guitar, Jeff Ament on bass guitar, Mike McCready on lead guitar, Matt Cameron on drums and Eddie Vedder providing lead and backing vocals.

Quite the line-up when you think that those five would become future members of Pearl Jam. This was also the first track ever released to feature Eddie Vedder’s vocals on it.

Like this track? Why not pick up the full album, which is exemplary from start to finish.
