Chris Cornell will be yelping and shrieking on his own for a while. Audioslave’s front man has slipped out the back door, leaving his band mates to fend for themselves – which they’ll be doing quite nicely as they reunite with <i>their</i> old front man Zack de la Rocha in a Rage Against the Machine show at the Coachella Festival in April. In parallel news we’re still reeling from the David Lee Roth/Van Halen confluence. Who’d a thunk that the failed talk show host would ever make amends with his hard rock buds? Maybe this means that Sammy Hagar could audition for Audioslave? Or maybe not. Something tells me the Cabo Wabo routine wouldn’t sit right with Tom Morello’s leftist leanings.
