“A little tribute to a sorely missed artist,” Taylor captioned the touching clip, saluting the late Soundgarden frontman who unexpectedly died last May. Earlier this week, System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian joined Prophets Of Rage (and Rage Against The Machine) members Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk—the former instrumentalists of Cornell’s Audioslave—for a live concert cover of the one-time supergroup’s “Like A Stone.”

As noted by Metal Hammer, Taylor previously paid tribute to Chris Cornell with Stone Sour’s cover of Soundgarden’s classic “Outshined” (just hours after the musician’s death) at Ohio's Rock On The Range festival last year. “He was one of my favourite singers, he was one of my favorite all-time songwriters,” Taylor told the crowd at the festival gig. “And the fact that he’s gone makes this world a little bit smaller.”

"Nicole Rork has an exceptional eye for catching “that moment” in her photographic work. There aren’t many photographers out there that have both a great sense of timing as well as composition in their work and Nicole has both. She has been attentive to deadlines and quick turnarounds and has always been a great person to work with on many projects over the years. I would highly recommend her to anyone – from a band needing promotional shots to a couple who are ready to enjoy their wedding day." Mike Shea, Alternative Press CEO
