Chris Cornell, the formal lead guitarist of Audioslave, has lent
his voice for the Gerard Butler action flick Machine Gun
Preacher. Machine Gun Preacher is the story of Sam
Childers, an ex drug-dealing biker turned messiah for Sudanese
orphans, who has inspired the lead singer so much that he could
write an entire album based on him.
Chris Cornell"s acoustic on the film is called 'The Keeper' has
a very folk tempo to it. Other than Cornell"s acoustic, the film
also features a track by the Australian musician Aaron Hendra
called One Man"s War, which is based on Chiders" book.
However, Chris Cornell is working on a new Soundgarden album for
the first time in 15 years. The American singer has been announced
as a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on the
