Another Funky Radical Bombtrack Started as a Sketch in My Notebook!
Ok, I know I said that I'm going back to the Undertow vault all this week, but I had to shy away from that just for today. Last night my buddy Sal and I drove to Alpine Valley to see Rage Against the Machines first show of a 5 date tour. It's been like 6 years since they broke up and now they're reuniting to play a few shows...and I was beyond thrilled to see them again. I have seen them several times, but really missed the energy they bring to a live show while they've been split. So I had to do a Rage piece today.
Fucking Zach De La Rocha is a great entertainer, along with the rest of the guys. You wonder how they're able to keep that amount of energy thru out an entire show. Seeing them together really took me back in time and stirred up alot of old feelings about...well, everything. It was like I felt 14, 16, 19, again. I might be older now and unwilling to get in the pit and fuck people up, but I still felt a surge of life that I haven't felt in a long time watching them hit the stage with the same passion that they had in '92. What a fucking band!!!!!!!!
I'm not sure if they are getting back together to record, but I can only hope.
