Singer Chris Cornell said in a new interview that he's not ruling out any future performances with Audioslave following his reunion with the group on January 20th for a three-song set at the Anti-Inaugural Ball in Los Angeles. Cornell told Music Radar, "It's always a possibility. I mean, we've been talking about it for at least three or four years now. We were talking about actually picking dates, and it just ended up not working out because everybody's so busy."

The vocalist said that the actual performance on January 20th was "pretty fun," adding, "It was interesting because the dynamic for that band was really just there. I don't know how much those guys rehearsed the songs, but . . . they were totally where we left them 10 years ago when we'd just got off the road."

He continued, "Now, that's pretty crazy -- all the energy and everyone remembering everything, and you're already playing the song with feeling, as opposed to trying to find it and remember where it is, so it was pretty great, and the energy was good.”

The Anti-Inaugural Ball was a star-studded concert protesting the swearing-in of Donald Trump as the nation's 45th president. Audioslave played three of its best-known songs: "Cochise," "Like A Stone" and "Show Me How To Live.”

Cornell cited his own schedule as well as that of the three instrumental members of Audioslave as the one roadblock to doing more shows, explaining, "They have another band again, they all have separate bands that they do themselves, I have Soundgarden and a solo career that's taking up a lot of time, and I just did Temple Of The Dog. It's really honestly as simple as we end up having a window of time where it's comfortable for everybody and we want to do it, because I definitely feel like everybody's up for it.”

In addition to Cornell, Audioslave features Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk.

The band got together in 2001 following the break-up of Rage, recording and touring three studio albums before disbanding in 2007.

Morello, Commerford and Wilk now play in Prophets Of Rage with Public Enemy's Chuck D and Cypress Hill's B-Real. They are currently recording their first album.
