Audioslave dropped by Live@Much on Thursday (October 6), where singer Chris Cornell talked about walking into a sort of family with his former Rage Against the Machine bandmates and whether it was a big step for the former Soundgarden singer to deal with. "Not really. I mean, I felt like it was an opportunity that could yield something extremely fruitful and maybe it would; maybe it wouldn't," Cornell responded. "In my mind, I thought, 'This makes a lot of sense.' And I'd had a lot of opportunities to work with a lot of people after Soundgarden split up and none of it ever made sense. And I didn't even make a phone call. But with these guys, it made a lot of sense. I thought of these three guys playing a song that I'm singing over is going to be great. What I didn't know was a week into that we were writing songs like 'Like a Stone' and 'Getaway Car' or 'I Am A Highway', which isn't something that any of us, I think, you know, put our fingers, something that we were going to be able to do that quickly, but we did right away. And so that was fantastic, which it happened so quickly, like I said before, we were finished with the record before I even knew who these guys were."
