Chris Cornell is set to perform at KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas on Sunday in Los Angeles, and his former Audioslave bandmate is set to perform on Saturday in Los Angeles at a benefit concert for Tony McAlpine featuring Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde, Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, Derek Sherinian, and John 5. Morello will take part in an ‘all star jam’ with Nuno Betancourt and Richie Kotzen. Some fans are speculating that Audioslave could do a surprise set in Los Angeles at one of these shows.
Chris Cornell recently told Music Radar that he wants Audioslave to reunite.
“Yeah, I think it would be great. We did a lot of songs, and with the benefit of having not 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.
“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.
“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.”
Do you think Audioslave will reunite this weekend, or will we have to wait in 2016? Leave your thoughts in the comments section.
