Audioslave’s Tom Morello Remembers ‘Brother’ Chris Cornell


Tom Morello remembered his late Audioslave bandmate Chris Cornell in a new Instagram post.

“I love you, brother. Thank you for your friendship and your humor and your intellect and your singular and unmatched talent. It was a great honor to know you as a friend and as a band mate. I am devastated and deeply saddened that you are gone dear friend but your unbridled rock power, delicate haunting melodies and the memory of your smile are with us forever. Your beautiful voice and beautiful self will always be in my heart. God bless you and your family.”

Audioslave reunited for their first performance in over a decade on January 20th in Los Angeles at the Anti-Inaugural Ball. Morello and Cornell had reconnected in recent years, with Morello attending Cornell’s 50th birthday party in 2014, and the two reuniting for an acoustic show in Seattle.
