LATEST: Rocker CHRIS CORNELL quit AUDIOSLAVE as a result of disagreements over business decisions. The ex-SOUNDGARDEN frontman joined former RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE bandmates TOM MORELLO, BRAD WILK and TIM COMMERFORD to form Audioslave in 2001. Audioslave released their third album, REVELATIONS, last September (06), while Cornell went solo to record the JAMES BOND theme YOU KNOW MY NAME for CASINO ROYALE and an album. However, Cornell admits the band members "weren't particularly getting along well". He tells, "Getting along as people is one thing. Getting along as a group of people that can work together in a band situation. We weren't particularly getting along well, no. "Bands work in a way where everyone at some point has to have a similar idea of how you do things. A band that makes records and tours is also as business. That's usually where a lot of disagreements come. It's four guys who are musicians and don't really know much about business, but are very passionate and have very specific ideas. "In this case it was a collaboration that was very satisfying and we all had a great time. "When I started I was already in the midst of a solo career. It didn't feel to me like this was ever a band I wanted to be in if there were going to be problems being in it. "But we ran into this issue right away, even before the first record came out. Three albums into it, it started to seem like our interests weren't as conjoined anymore."
