Biography

Chris Cornell is mostly known as the singer, guitarist, and co-songwriter in Soundgarden.
After Soundgarden initially split up, he formed Audioslave with the three Rage Against the Machine instrumentalists. He left because of "personality conflicts as well as musical differences" and the group is believed to have split up.
He has also recorded and performed as a solo artist.
