    so he called someone from the audience? What’s the back story?

  • Michael

    He did this in Indianapolis when someone from the audience yelled that he could play Sunshower.

  • Michael

    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!

    Great job Chris and Ben Dawson! Excellent! You kind of look like Paul Mccartney too.

  • Matt A

    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.

    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.
