Chris Cornell

Since Audioslave’s contentious split back in 2007, frontman Chris Cornell has kept busy with multiple projects including reuniting Soundgarden and restarting his solo career. While Cornell preps his upcoming solo effort, word comes out that the frontman is at least open to the idea of bringing Audioslave back together. In an interview with Total Guitar, Cornell said he would “always be open” for a reunion. “I think it would be great,” Cornell said. “We were certainly a prolific group of people; we wrote three whole albums in around five years, maybe less. And these were albums that were raw, and we had extra material, and we just never seemed to have trouble ever trying to agree on what would come out of the songs.” Cornell concluded, “They were great guys, and I really enjoyed the experience that I had with them, so yeah, I would always be open to doing something.”Chris Cornell and Tom Morello shared the stage together at the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony and last fall at a Morello solo show in Seattle. And Morello and Audioslave bassist Tim Commerford recently attended Cornell’s 50th birthday party. In a recent Radio.com interview, Morello said, “I love Chris and consider him a great friend. The Hall of Fame jam was nice, but a little chaotic. Playing with him in Seattle, that was just fantastic. I love that guy. He’s one of the most talented vocalists in the history of vocalists. And to be able to play the songs that we wrote together, it was awesome and so much fun. I hope we do something like that again.”
