Morello and Cornell to play together at charity benefit show

TM and CC Live Shot

Former Audioslave bandmates Chris Cornell and Tom Morello are to play together at a charity benefit show, the pair have revealed.

The two musicians joined forces when Audioslave formed in 2001 after the break up of legendary bands Soundgarden and Rage Against The Machine. The group enjoyed a six year, three album run before Cornell left citing “personal and musical differences.” Morello, along with Audioslave bandmates Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk, returned to Rage Against The Machine, and Cornell regrouped with Soundgarden in 2010.

The two men will reunite on stage in Seattle on the 26th of September at a concert raising funds and awareness of the 15 Now campaign, which aims to raise the US minimum wage to $15 per hour.

Morello will headline the show in his Nightwatchman persona, with Cornell appearing as a guest during the acoustic set.

Rob Zombie expresses sorrow over shortened show

Rob Zombie 640x360

Rob Zombie has released a statement apologising for his shortened set at Wisconsin’s Rock Fest last weekend.

Fans reacted angrily across the web after Zombie stopped his show and walked off after just two songs saying: “There’s no way I can do this. I’m sorry. It’s fucking bullshit, I know, but that’s what happens. What can we do? It’s my fault.”

In a more complete explanation, Zombie said via his new statement: “I’m very sorry to everyone who was at Rock Fest. Believe it or not, this is the first time in 29 years I have not been able to finish a show.”

“I understand people are pissed – but what can you do? It’s easy to say, ‘Man up and just do it,’ but when no sound is coming out there’s nothing you can do. If you’ve ever lost your voice you know it doesn’t magically return just because you want it to.”

“If there was a way to do the show I’d have done it, as I have many times before. I’ve done shows where I walked to the side of the stage between songs to vomit, I was so sick.”

The musician is adamant that he’s not looking for sympathy, but rather: “”As far as everyone yelling, ‘I’ve been a fan for 20 years and now I fucking hate you, you pussy rock star!’ What can I say? Shitty stuff happens sometimes. I tried explaining before I left the stage, but I could barely croak out a word.”

“We’re trying to figure out a time and place to make it up to everybody,” he continued. “I don’t take the fans for granted and I don’t take this situation lightly. My goal is to never let the fans down – but on that night I did. Unfortunately, I had no choice.”
