Chris Cornell would be a step up from Weiland, dude can really wail. but it seems more likely that Daughtry would step in.

with Audioslave his voice was indeed awful, but i saw him solo early last year and the dude still has a lot of his pipes left. not sure if he was just oversinging with AS or what.

I thought all 3 Audioslave records had some great songs on them....but I am a lot more receptive to some of the mainstream/active rock stuff than 90% of this board. Give me Audioslave over fuckin' Xiu Xiu any ol' day of the week.

'like a stone' was really nice, but that song really reinforced how much i missed euphoria morning

his ensuing solo album was upsetting stuff to say the least

Yeah, pretty weak. I do like "Arms Around Your Love". I got it for a buck at Half Price Books so I'm not complaining.

Instead of re-working Velvet Revolver: They'd need to create a whole new band.

I was about to say... this has gotta be an april fools thread.

Yeah. After Cornell saying he never wants to be in a band band again, I would believe this only if Slash wrote him a check for like 10 million dollars to join.

Timbaland Calls Collaboration with Chris Cornell His 'Best Work'

By Brian Orloff

Originally posted Thursday March 27, 2008 11:15 AM EDT

In-demand hip-hop producer Timbaland is making a rock and roll crossover. On Ryan Seacrest's "On Air" radio show Thursday, it was announced that he is producing Chris Cornell's third solo album.

"This is the best work I've done in my career," Timbaland told Seacrest. And Cornell – a former member of Audioslave and, most famously, Soundgarden – was equally enthusiastic about the collaboration. Said Cornell: "This is the most excited I've been about an album in years. The music is natural, not self-conscious ... open."

Predicting Cornell will be the "first rock star in the club", Timbaland says he's currently mixing the album, and hopes to release it within a month. No title or released date has been confirmed.

In February, guests at PEOPLE's pre-Grammy party at the Avalon in Los Angeles got an early taste of Cornell's new music – as the rocker performed a song at the bash, which featured Timbaland and a fleet of his former collaborators including Missy Elliott. Timbaland has also famously worked with Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado on their recent projects.

there's a new Verizon Wireless commercial that features a clip of the single "Part of Me" from the record (the 2nd song it morphs into is the Rapture, fwiw):



jesus. fucking. christ. :blink:

after this abomination, fuck the chance of a Soundgarden reunion, because the other guys better never speak to him again...

Jesus. Fucking. Fuck. This is the final nail in the coffin for my old childhood icon. Based on that clip, the album could be so bad that it will rip a hole in space time and prevent Soundgarden from ever having existed at all.

Can we just all agree now that Timbaland is the biggest hack in the business?

Since Soundgarden broke up, it's pretty clear that this guy is truly lost and has no musical direction whatsoever. His first solo album showed some promise (particularly the first single), but otherwise, this guy has just wasted the past decade or so of his career. It looks (and sounds) like he is struggling to figure out where he fits in the post-grunge scene. And failing miserably at it.

I know it's just a brief snippet and I'm sure there's more rock to it, but what part of that clip suggests this is actually a "crossover"? Other than the ID of the guy under whose name the album is being made, anyway.

Soundgarden was once one of my most sacred bands. I fear listening to this when I get home, but the suspense is killing me at the same time. Chris Cornell's last solo album was garbage for the most part but this...this seems like it could be worse.
