Self-editing is overrated. Or is it?

Argh! Now what?

Well, I shoulda guessed this when I saw Rage Against The Machine was playing Coachella, but Chris Cornell has left Audioslave, thereby ending the last decent hard rock band out there. Dammit.

"Due to irresolvable personality conflicts as well as musical differences, I am permanently leaving the band Audioslave. I wish the other three members nothing but the best in all of their future endeavors," Cornell said in a statement.

In other words, "I already spent a long time in Soundgarden with a bunch of guys that I never liked, and that band was a lot better than these guys anyway."

Sigh. Oh well. Cornell says he's releasing a solo record in May, and who knows? Maybe it will be good. Did you see his opening song in Casino Royale? I really liked it! I thought it was a really great mix of David Arnold's brassy orchestral sound with a real rock number. However, some people hated it.

Here, you see what you think.
