Back in the day, life was simple. Chris Cornell was married to Susan Silver, and Silver managed Cornell's band, Soundgarden. Years later Soundgarden broke up, and eventually Cornell and Silver did too. Cornell moved on and eventually got remarried, had a couple of kids, and continued on with his musical career. Recently (in 2005) Cornell filed suit against Silver, alleging she ripped off Soundgarden, diverted the band's funds, and retained some of the band's possessions.

It sounds as if things have really taken a turn for the worse. Check out this article which was recently published by eonline. Yikes! The article discusses a recent break-in to the Cornell's residence. Apparently Cornell's wife was home with the kids when the intruder entered the home.
The fiasco ended with Cornell's wife jumping out the bathroom window with the children to escape. The Cornells believe Silver had something to do with this incident as well as a previous break-in at their house.

Earlier this year the White Stripes canceled their North American tour due to Meg White's struggle with anxiety. Jack White was recently interviewed by the Los Angeles Times, who asked when the band would get back on the road again if ever. He said, "I don't know, it's up to Meg...The Beatles did it. I'm joking, but if we didn't ever tour again it wouldn't matter to me."
James will return with a new cd in the spring. Earlier this year the band decided to reunite and play some shows/festivals together. Things went so well they decided to record a full length cd together. Apparently progress is being made and they've decided to set an official release date for the new material they've recorded. The new cd, which is still untitled, is scheduled to drop April 7th.

After navigating some legal hurdles, Nine Inch Nails is proud to announce the launch of an official NIN remix website. Check it out here.
