CHRIS CORNELL ‘Would Always Be Open’ To Playing With AUDIOSLAVE Again

August 5, 2015

Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell told U.K.’s Total Guitar Magazine that he’d be open to an Audioslave reunion.

Audioslave UMG Ethan A. Russell 2005Cornell said, “I think it would be great. We did a lot of songs, and with the benefit of not having done anything with those guys for so long, I can’t imagine what it would be. It would be a really amazing experience just to get back and work with the same guys again.”

Cornell continued, “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.”

He added, “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.”

Audioslave came together in 2001 when Cornell teamed with the instrumental members of Rage Against The Machine.

Audioslave made three albums, a self-titled 2002 debut, 2005’s “Out Of Exile” and 2006’s “Revelations”, before Cornell left the group in 2007.
