Temple of the Dog (1991)

In 1990, Andrew Wood of Seattle grunge band Mother Love Bone died of a heroin overdose. His roommate, lead singer of Soundgarden, Chris Cornell, took his drummer Matt Cameron to the remaining members of Mother Love Bone in discussion of a tribute album to the late musician. The two members of Mother Love Bone, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament, were already in talks with Mike McReady and Eddie Veddar on a project which the following year would turn into Pearl Jam. For one album, this mix of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam teamed up into a grunge supergroup for Temple of the Dog. This is a classic grunge album and the duet of Vedder and Cornell on Hunger Strike is orgasmic.
