Tom Morello / Rage Against The Machine...

Tom Morello - Goes Solo, Rage To Reunite?

Billboard.com reports: Guitarist Tom Morello takes the mic for the first time on "One Man Revolution," his debut album as The Nightwatchman. Due April 24 via Epic, the 13-track set was produced by Brendan O'Brien and sports acoustic-based compositions that are a far cry from the heavy guitar rock Morello has purveyed in RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE and AUDIOSLAVE.

The artist has been utilizing The Nightwatchman moniker for the past three years for performances, and has of late been hosting a Tuesday night residency at Los Angeles' Hotel Cafe. Among the guests that have dropped by recently are SYSTEM OF A DOWN's Serj Tankian, CYPRESS HILL's Sen Dog and Perry Farrell.

Morello will tour this spring, including an appearance at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, in mid-March. But perhaps of most interest to hardcore fans are rumors that RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE may be reuniting for the first time in six-plus years to play the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival this spring.

An event spokesperson was not available for comment on the possibility of a RAGE performance.

After RAGE split in 2000, Morello formed AUDIOSLAVE with his old band's rhythm section of Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk. However, AUDIOSLAVE is on hiatus while frontman Chris Cornell records a solo album and has no plans to tour in support of its third album, "Revelations," released last fall.

And while AUDIOSLAVE refused to play RAGE songs live on its early tours, the band eventually began incorporating them into its sets in summer 2005.

As for RAGE frontman Zach de la Rocha, little has been heard from him since the breakup, although he is said to be on good terms with his ex-bandmates.

Rage Against the Machine will reunite for Coachella
Red Hot Chili Peppers and Björk also top the bill for the three-day music festival.
By Geoff Boucher
Times Staff Writer

January 22, 2007

Rage Against the Machine, the seminal L.A. band that made heavy music into political manifesto, will reunite after a seven-year lull for one show as the headliners at the 2007 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Sources say Rage, which played the main stage at the first Coachella in 1999, will be joined by other familiar faces for the eighth edition of the festival, which covers three days this year and begins April 27: Red Hot Chili Peppers, which headlined in 2003, are back, as is Björk, who topped the bill in 2002.

Organizers were mum this weekend and it was not clear which day Rage or the other acts were slotted to play; that announcement is expected in the next few days. Other acts expected in the eclectic lineup: Arcade Fire, Interpol, Willie Nelson, the Roots, Manu Chao, the Decemberists, Arctic Monkeys, Sonic Youth, Crowded House, Air, Tiësto and Kings of Leon.

Tickets go on sale Saturday, via Ticketmaster. Three-day passes will cost about $250 and there will be a limited number of single-day passes available.

The headliners are not novel, but they are potent. The Peppers are up for their first best album Grammy right now, and Björk remains a mesmerizing figure to fans of avant pop. But in Southern California rock circles, there is very little that could compete with the excitement of a Rage Against the Machine reunion. The quartet's hybrid of funk, rap, metal and leftist ideology was as subtle as a Molotov cocktail; in the 1990s, its aggro-anthems made it the only band that mattered to a fan base that included East L.A. protest kids as well as those in Hollywood punk circles, college dorms and mainstream rock festival mosh pits, where politics were secondary to the group's feral energy.

The band is vocalist Zack de la Rocha, guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk. Their split came amid rumors of bad blood between De la Rocha and his mates, who went on to work with Chris Cornell in Audioslave. However, Morello and De la Rocha appeared together at a 2005 rally for the urban farmers of a South Los Angeles community garden.
--------

Can't wait but Zack can kiss my shiny metal ass. Punk.

Fucking great guitarist, Morello. Bellamy wouldn't be doing all his pitch-shifting solo antics without Tom.

The solo in Audioslave's "Man Or Animal" is the reason I don't care for them or Morello anymore.

Listen to it. It's awful.

yes, but they had no plans to tour for it because Cornell has a solo album due out this year, and apparently so does Morello.

I did the first Audioslave CD. The other two, not as much, but still likeable.

Audioslave is great, anyway RATM or Soundgarden were much better.

i don't like it...

i liked rage because of their instrumentals but hated de la rocha... i wasn't huge into soundgarden but loved cornell's voice. audioslave combining the two was treeeemendous, and they were great live.

i don't mind rage playing together again, i just hope it's not the end of audioslave

I'm sorry. Any time I hear about Rage Against the Machine, I think of Will Ferrell climbing that post yelling, "I'm raging! I'm gonna RAGE! I'M RAGING AGAINST THE MACHINE!!"

I like a couple Audioslave songs. Original Fire does rock my world. mmm
