I kind of saw it coming when Chris Cornell did that song for Casino Royal with another band. Now all this talk about a Rage Against the Machine reunion?
The writing was on the wall. But it came officially today via Cornell’s MySpace page that he has left Audioslave. Since Audioslave was Rage minus Zack de la Roca plus Chris, I think it’s safe to say they are done.
I’ll be happy if Rage gets back together, but I’m still disappointed. I greatly enjoyed the blend of styles that Audioslave created, and I felt like they were pushing music forward at a time where it was feeling stagnant.
Maybe it’s time for a revolution, though? Rage could certainly kick things up a notch.
