Cornell: 'I Almost Turned Down Bond Theme'

CHRIS CORNELL almost turned down the chance to record the new JAMES BOND film's theme song, because he disliked PIERCE BROSNAN's recent 007 movies. The AUDIOSLAVE frontman's YOU KNOW MY NAME has been selected for the soundtrack of CASINO ROYALE. But Cornell only agreed to compose the track once he had watched a rough edit of the upcoming DANIEL CRAIG-starring movie. He tells VH1, "I wasn't really sure about doing a Bond theme, because I wasn't really a big fan of the last several movies. "And then I heard that there was going to be a new guy - Daniel Craig - who was going to play Bond. And he's so different. I have seen him in several movies, and I was kind of intrigued. "So I went to Prague (in Czech Republic), where they were shooting the movie, and they showed me a rough edit of it. I was just completely blown away by it, because it's unlike any Bond film ever, really. "Craig is an actor's actor, and there's emotional content to the movie. He's not like the swaggering, winking sort of super-agent guy. He's like a human being in this movie, and it's going to completely readjust the way people think of the character."
