Doug Elfman of the Las Vegas Review Journal asked Tom Morello if Audioslave worried about becoming another Van Halen, thus joked about for its use of replacement singing. “We weren’t worried about that, because let me tell you, Chris Cornell is no Sammy Hagar. It was very clear to us from the new rehearsal that it was a new band,” Morello says. “Chris was not becoming the singer of Rage Against the Machine. Nor was it two bands merging. It was not a Ragegarden.” The full story at reviewjournal.com has since been removed.
