Chris Cornell says an Audioslave tour is a possibility, but it would take some serious scheduling

Is more Audioslave in our future? Last month, Chris Cornell reunited  with his Audioslave bandmates last month with a gig at the Anti-Inaugural Ball in Los Angeles, which has fans wondering if more Audioslave shows are in the future. In a new interview with Music Radar, Cornell spoke about the possibility for more Audioslave shows.

“It’s always a possibility,” Cornell said. “I mean, we’ve been talking about it for at least three or four years now. We were talking about actually picking dates, and it just ended up not working out because everybody’s so busy.” He continued regarding the band members’ schedules, “They have another band again, they all have separate bands that they do themselves, I have Soundgarden and a solo career that’s taking up a lot of time, and I just did Temple of the Dog. So, it’s really honestly as simple as we end up having a window of time where it’s comfortable for everybody and we want to do it, because I definitely feel like everybody’s up for it.”

Cornell also described the experience of getting back on the stage with the Audioslave crew – Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk – as a familiar, positive one. “…I don’t know how much those guys rehearsed the songs, but I had the same experience when I went on stage with Tom (Morello) a couple of years back: where we walked into the room for a rehearsal, and we didn’t even really need one,” he said. “We just counted the songs in and they were totally where we left them 10 years ago when we’d just got off the road. Now, that’s pretty crazy — all the energy and everyone remembering everything, and you’re already playing the song with feeling, as opposed to trying to find it and remember where it is, so it was pretty great, and the energy was good.”
