Launch Radio Networks reports: AUDIOSLAVE singer Chris Cornell and his wife, Vicky, are expecting a son in November, according to The child will be the second for the couple, who have a one-year-old daughter named Toni. Cornell also has a five-year-old daughter named Lily from his previous marriage to ex-SOUNDGARDEN manager Susan Silver.

The news about the impending arrival was part of an interview in which Cornell mostly discussed AUDIOSLAVE's historic trip to play in Havana, Cuba last May. Cornell said that Cuban dictator Fidel Castro went on TV every day to speak out against America during their stay. "He just complained and complained the whole time we were there...But it didn't make any difference in terms of how our day went, because nobody there cared where we were from," he said.

A CD/DVD document of the trip and concert, called "Live In Cuba", will be out on October 11.

AUDIOSLAVE began a headlining arena tour of North America on Saturday night (September 24) in Bakersfield, California. SEETHER and 30 SECONDS TO MARS are the opening acts.
