Audioslave frontman Chris Cornell has given up on stage-diving, after his antics prompted a security guard to manhandle him.

Cornell admits the rock concert staple has grown a little "old" for him - especially as it almost led to him being ejected from the venue he was performing at.

He says, "I've done it and landed smack on my face. Once, I stage-dived and the security guard, thinking I was a fan, grabbed me by the hair and started pulling me out the front door.

"The fans had to beg him to let me go back onstage. He was apologetic once he figured everything out."
