It's not easy rocking arenas and sticking it to The Man. Sometimes even a globetrotting rock star needs to kick back and watch a little "Family Feud" before working on the ol’ muscle car. Visit FHM Magazine Online and check out a few of the things that put a smile on AUDIOSLAVE guitarist Tom Morello's face — you might be surprised.
AUDIOSLAVE's third album, "Revelations", was good for No. 2 on this week's Billboard Top 200 album chart, selling 142,000 copies in its first week of release and topped only by the new effort from BEYONCE. However, the sales were far below the band's 2005 disc, "Out of Exile", which moved 263,000 copies in its first week to hit No. 1. But singer Chris Cornell told Launch he enjoyed coming back and making another album so quickly. "A record takes six months, eight months, a year, to me it's impossible to listen to it after it's done, when you have memories of every single note that's played on it," he said. "And when something's done like this, it's so fresh that I can listen to it a lot, and it's almost like listening to somebody else's record."
A one-hour acoustic performance that Cornell gave last week in Stockholm, Sweden will air in its entirety this Friday on Swedish radio station Bandit Rock 106-3. The performance will also be heard on the station's website, Bandit1063.com.
AUDIOSLAVE has not announced touring plans in support of the new CD. The group has hinted at hitting the road in early 2007.
Cornell plans to record his second solo album this fall and also recently recorded the theme song for the upcoming James Bond movie "Casino Royale".
