Chris Cornell performing with Ben Dawson on June 20, 2012 at Newcastle City Hall.
That was me!!!
Awesome job dude that must of felt awesome
Most awesome moment of my life!
so he called someone from the audience? What’s the back story?
He did this in Indianapolis when someone from the audience yelled that he could play Sunshower.
And BTW, good job, very solid performance from both of you, you didn’t really have any mistakes, and you played each part right so Chris knew exactly when and where to go vocally, that’s really cool!
Ben you the man!!! That was awesome!!!
…matching outfits and nearly same hair?
VERY IMPRESSIVE JOB PLAYING THAT SONG! PERFECT JOB!
Great job Chris and Ben Dawson! Excellent! You kind of look like Paul Mccartney too.
Cool as shit.
Watched it again and am still amazed how well Ben Dawson played that with Cornell. I mean he had no prior knowledge nor did Chris and they did a fantastic job together. Being an acoustic guitar player myself and having that be one of my all time dreams I imagine I would be nervous as hell playing those transitions standing next to Mr. Cornell, the legend. Ben did as good as anyone possibly could IMO. I’d like to see/hear other versions as discussed on here previously, sometimes they are butchered and like this one and another from Orlando I believe they sound damn impressive. Great idea Chris to incorporate that into your shows, it’s original and brings a whole new level of participation to the audience at a acoustic rock show. You cease to amaze.
way to go bro. impressive in the moment
That was totally fucking awesome bro. Good job!!!!
Awesome man, I can play Outshined myself too… in my basement with no one around.
Many’s the nite Eric Kretz has called in sick and I’ve needed to fill in at my house!
[...] The recipient of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity was Ben Dawson, who asked Cornell if he can play with him and proceeded to rock ‘Outshined’ — a song you generally wouldn’t think of as an acoustic jam. However, Dawson knocked the song out of the park during the five-minute, jealousy-inspiring performance. “Most awesome moment of my life!” commented Dawson on Grunge Report. [...]
That guy looks a LOT like Steve Diggle!
[...] to GrungeReport, a fan named Ben Dawson took the opportunity of a silence in-between songs and asked, rather [...]
Absolutely awesome. I love when shit like this happens. Great job, Ben. I would be too intimidated to play anything like that next to someone like that.
First of all great job that was an amazing rendition, secondly I have never been more jealous in my life ha ha.
The best thing about this clip is even the haters of world don’t have a bad thing to say. Great job Ben, must have been $hitting yourself up there.
