During a recent conversation with Dave Navarro, guitarist Tom Morello talked about his late Audioslave bandmate Chris Cornell, saying:
“I might have told you this after Chris: Be ever vigilant, and if you ever need to call somebody, call me.”
“This is the last serious thing, but the last time I saw Chris, he was shining. He was great, he was as great as I had ever seen him. He was completely fulfilled and happy, in career and family, so you never know.
“It’s always there somewhere, so if it ever surfaces, give me a call.”
So there was no indication?
“I saw him in January, he passed in May. The intervening months, I don’t know.”
During the rest of the interview, Morello touched on RATM reunion requests. You can check out the conversation below.
Is Rage Against the Machine getting more pressure than ever to do something new and current?
“Rage Against the Machine has been wholly unresponsive to pressure for its entire history.”
I imagine with what’s going on now, you’re hearing more about it than ever.
“I’ve never stopped hearing about it. If a Rage Against the Machine show breaks out, count me in.”
