Watch the guys of Audioslave rock together for the first time in years
It’s been more than a decade since Audioslave performed together, but on Friday (Jan. 20), the rock supergroup joined forces at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles for a special gig. It was a short set, with the band performing only three songs: “Cochise,” “Show Me How to Live” and “Like A Stone.”
For Audioslave fans, it meant the world just to see Chris Cornell and company back together. The concert was part of the Anti-Inaugural Ball, an event protesting the inauguration of the 45th president Donald Trump. Watch video footage of the reunion below.
Audioslave brings together Cornell, whose main gig is fronting Soundgarden, as well as Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk.
The Audioslave reunion isn’t a complete shock, as band members have been hinting at the possibility of getting back together for a while.
Guitarist Tom Morello recently spoke with Music Radar about the chance of an Audioslave reunion, stating, “I love Chris (Cornell) and I love what we did together. That door has certainly never closed in any way, but right now, it’s looking like we’re pretty busy. We’re in the middle of a North American tour, I’m also working on a record of my own and the other guys have things going on, too. But whatever happens in the future, Chris is one of the greatest singers of all time, and there’s no way I couldn’t be proud of the shows and music we played together.”
Audioslave cranked out three albums together: their self-titled 2002 debut, 2005’s “Out Of Exile” and 2006’s “Revelations.” Cornell parted ways with the band in 2007 and reunited with Soundgarden in 2010.
