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.

Yea! I don't agree with any of their polictics but I love their music. I wish I could catch one of their shows.

Yeah, they're a little radical, but the music is awesome. More Rage! I like their music, but I'm not sure what I'm looking at there. Is that Zach, Skottie?

totally stoked Rage is getting back together. A little sad to see Audioslave go, but meh, Rage rocks. I felt like they kind of ditched everyone after teh 2000 election, which was such a crappy time for a political band to bail on their fans.

very fun... I saw Rage back in the day with WuTang Clan (Blossom Ctr) as the opening act... one of the greatest shows ever... I remember thinking that there was no way they could replicate the sound from the albums in a live setting... but I was pleasantly surprised that the live experience was even better then the albums. Glad you got to go.

Got the New Warriors trade btw... really enjoying it (I am reading issue #5 in it right now).

When I look at that piece, I can literally hear Zack screaming. What you did with the "ignite" is dope.

I was at that show and thought that they completely rocked. What a scene there at Alpine eh? Balls to the wall crazy. I'm hella bummed that I didn't grab on of the "Battle of Alpine Valley" shirts though. Heard they were sweet.

Lastly, rumor has it that they were filming for a DVD that night. Truly classic. Morello was killin it.
