    Default Tom Morello

    went to his show the other night and was blown away by his guitar playing and show. We had an awesome time, even though we don't agree with all his politics.

    Here's his compilation of RATM songs he played

    July 30th, 1982 @ Freedom Hall
    Feb. 9th, 1984 @ Freedom Hall

    Sept 2nd 2015 at Indy!

    and some dates with Sammy singing.

    Not a fan of his politics either but he’s got some funky grooves.

    "Know your enemy" was my fave thing he did, where he makes his guitar sound like a Genesis keyboard.

    I love that first Rage album. The others aren’t nearly as good but they have moments. Not a fan of his politics either but he does play some cool stuff.

    I kind of view him as the last original guitarist. Hate his politics and like the Edge, if on an acoustic his style goes completely away. However love the first Rage album and he did carve his niche out

    while he played, he had pics/videos playing behind him and during one song, there was a picture of a cop in full armor with the caption something along these lines: white people don't get shot

    And the crowd was practically all white.....

    I like Morello, the guy is like a hard rock The Edge. Both guys are original and play without playing so to speak.

    Love this tune and Morello's "solo".

     "He has a swaggering retro machismo that will give hives to the Steinem cabal" -Camille Paglia on Donald Trump

    "But, fucking with Brook is like fucking with hot shit on and ax handle. You just don't get a grip"-track5

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- David Lee Roth

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    I'm sure they do. I know they do. But how 'bout some numbers on who is on the other side of the barrel? 'Cause I know a lot of times when I read about a shooting here, the person being shot quite often has the same colour skin as the person who shot them...

    But I suppose in Tommy's mind, that's somehow my fault?
