On this day in 1991, Temple Of The Dog released their eponymous, certified platinum album. The band was conceived by vocalist Chris Cornell of Soundgarden as a tribute to his friend, the late Andrew Wood, lead singer of the bands Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone. The lineup included Stone Gossard on rhythm guitar, Jeff Ament on bass guitar (both ex-members of Mother Love Bone), Mike McCready on lead guitar, and Matt Cameron of Soundgarden on drums. Eddie Vedder appeared as a guest to provide some lead and backing vocals. This was prior to the forming of Pearl Jam. And what an album this is. #TempleOfTheDog
