Temple of the Dog was started by Chris Cornell. After the death of his former roommate, Mother Love Bone singer Andrew Wood, Cornell wrote two songs in tribute: "Say Hello 2 Heaven" and "Reach Down". Cornell approached Wood's former bandmates, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament, with the intention of releasing the songs as a single.

Andrew Wood (January 8, 1966 – March 19, 1990) was the lead singer of the band Mother Love Bone and earlier of Malfunkshun. ...


With the band completed following the addition of Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron (who would later join Pearl Jam after the breakup of Soundgarden in April 1997) and Pearl Jam lead guitarist Mike McCready, the band started rehearsing the songs, as well as re-working some existing material, such as Pearl Jam's "Footsteps", which would become "Times of Trouble". The rehearsals soon led to several new songs, and the single soon became an album. Matt Cameron Matthew Cameron (born November 28, 1962) is an American musician renowned for playing drums in the hard rock band Soundgarden from 1986 until the bands 1997 break-up. ... Michael Mike McCready (born April 5, 1966) is the lead guitarist of the American rock band Pearl Jam. ...


Eddie Vedder, who had flown to Seattle to audition to be Pearl Jam's singer, ended up providing backing vocals. "Hunger Strike" became a duet between Cornell and Vedder. Cornell was having trouble with the vocals at practice, when Vedder stepped in. Cornell later said that "he sang half of that song not even knowing that I'd wanted the part to be there and he sang it exactly the way I was thinking about doing it, just instinctively". Eddie Vedder, circa 1992 Eddie Vedder (born Edward Louis Seversen III on 23 December 1964) is the lead singer and lyricist for the band Pearl Jam. ...


Vedder's role on the album, and appearance in the video released to accompany "Hunger Strike", confused and angered several people. Pearl Jam fans, who were not aware of the background of the project, saw Vedder's lesser role as a slight; while fans of Soundgarden and Mother Love Bone presumed that Vedder's appearance on the album was due to record company machinations.


Aside from a show the band played in Seattle, at the Off Ramp Café, on November 13, 1990, while rehearsing and writing the material for the album, the band had two opportunities to perform the material live. In October 1991, both Soundgarden and Pearl Jam appeared at the Foundations Forum showcase, and in 1992 the band played at the last show of that year's Lollapalooza festival. November 13 is the 317th day of the year (318th in leap years) in the Gregorian Calendar, with 48 days remaining. ... This article is about the year. ...

In 2003, there was a third live appearance of Temple of the Dog. At a Pearl Jam show on October 28, 2003, Pearl Jam was joined on stage by Chris Cornell and they played "Hunger Strike" and "Reach Down". "Reach Down" later appeared on Pearl Jam's annual Ten Club Christmas Single that year.


"All Night Thing" (as well as Soundgarden's "Loud Love") appears on the soundtrack of Wayne's World, though not on the soundtrack album.
