VIDEO: Chris Cornell Performs Soundgarden Classic With Fan

Chris Cornell made a fans' dream come true last week at his Newcastle City Hall show. It's the moment that every guitarist dreams about, being welcomed onto the stage to perform alongside one of your rock idols.

Cornell was in town as part of his solo tour, where he has been playing a set spanning his whole career including Soundgarden, Audioslave and his solo songs.

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.

Their impromptu collaboration impressed both the crowd and Cornell, who shouted, "Let's make some noise for Ben! What a pleasant surprise that was... I didn't expect that." Watch the video below.

Meanwhile, Cornell's latest work with Soundgarden is in the final stages of preparation and is expected to hit stores this October. Revolver editor Brandon Geist recently heard a few tracks off of the album and tweeted, "3 very heavy and rockin, one almost could be AC/DC, 3 more mellow, expansive. Psychedelic touches: sitar, organ…"Later adding that the band is still deciding on a single and mastering the other half of the album.
