Chris Cornell quits Audioslave
Audioslave singer Chris Cornell has announced that he has quit the band.

The frontman of the all-star rock group cited "irresolvable personality conflicts as well as musical differences" in a statement issued today, reports Reuters.

Cornell, who once fronted popular Seattle rockers Soundgarden, plans to focus on his solo career, and will release his second solo album, 'Carry On', on May 1 in the US.

His Audioslave bandmates -- guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk -- will reunite with singer Zack de la Rocha to reform Rage Against the Machine at this year's Coachella Festival, as previously reported.

Audioslave formed in 2001 and recorded three studio albums.
