    I have no URL to give you but give me just a minute...

    for now, just look at the www.ratm.com bulletin board

    (By the way I'm by no means a RATM fan... I just dug their first album)

    18 October - ZACK LEAVES RAGE!


    Frontman Zack De La Rocha has announced that he is leaving Rage Against The Machine. In an official statement giving the reasons for his departure, he said, "I feel that it is now necessary to leave Rage, because our decision-making process has completely failed. It is not longer meeting the aspirations of all four of us collectively as a band and from my perspective, has undermined our artistic and political ideal."

    He goes on to say, "I am extremely proud of our work, both as activists and musicians, as well as indebted and grateful to every person who has expressed solidarity and shared this incredible experience with us."

    Zack's departure comes after weeks of speculation about the band's future. On 7 September, RATM bassist Tim Commerford was arrested at the MTV Video Music Awards in New York, after climbing 15 feet onto a stage prop and refusing to come down while Limp Bizkit were being given the Best Rock Video award. At the time, De La Rocha was reported to be "humiliated" by the incident and left the ceremony early. Four days later, RATM parted company with their managers Gary Gersh and Josh Silva, and De La Rocha has recently been working on a hip hop solo album.

    As yet, no statement has been made regarding RATM's future plans, but De La Rocha's departure will apparently not affect the release of their forthcoming live album and DVD on 4 December.

    18 October - RATM RESPOND!


    Rage Against The Machine's Tim Commerford, Tom Morello and Brad Wilk have issued an official response to the news that frontman Zack De La Rocha has left the band - and although they have not said it outright, it would appear that they are planning to continue with the band.

    In its entirety, their statement reads:

    "We're proud of our history and what we've accomplished musically and politically over the last nine years. We are committed to continuing with our efforts to effect change in the social and political arena and look forward to creating more ground breaking music for our fans. In other words, we'll keep it loud, keep it funky and most definitely rock onů"

    More news as we get itů

    From the way the rest of the band responds to the statement, I get the feeling they will carry on.

    That's a pity because RATM definitely had some credibility IMO. I can understand why flavour of the hour Limp Dick getting Best Rock Video would piss off RATM's bass player and make him do something stupid. "The Battle Of Los Angeles" is one fine album.

    Good! I hate RATM, that "save the world" rap gets old, especially considering they had a major recording contract which means $$$$ for them. I'm willing to bet they donated approximately $0 of it to charity, too. Hypocrites and Tom Morello sucks, he just makes noise. Good riddance to noisy rubbish.

    Yes, I was quite happy to hear that. One more annoying band gone. Now if we could just get rid of the other psuedo metal bands.
    Limp Bizkit
    Red Hot Chilli Peppers
    Slipknot
    Incubus
    and several others that I am too lazy to mention.
