View Full Version : What does Morello have in store for Coachella?

Well if he had these kind if guests at SXSW ... is this a sign of things to come:


AUSTIN, Texas It might not have been the Rage Against the Machine gig that rumors had predicted, but Tom Morello's late-night set on Thursday at the Parish was pretty remarkable nonetheless. While many took the show's billing "Tom Morello with special guests" to mean his Rage bandmates, instead, the crowd got an impromptu supergroup for a large chunk of the set.

Indeed, even those expecting a surprise were flabbergasted to see Morello and his backing musicians walk onstage accompanied by Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash, former MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer, and Jane's Addiction singer Perry Farrell and immediately launch into Jane's classics "Mountain Song" and "Ain't No Right." Farrell, dapper in a dark waistcoat and ruffled shirt, grinned and bobbed while he sang; actor Breckin Meyer turned in a strong performance on the drums (who knew?); Slash peeled off stinging leads; and Morello and Kramer both more commonly associated with crushing power chords incongruously bashed away on acoustic guitars.

Why would anyone think he was gonna come out with his Rage band mates? It isn't rocket science to understand that their return (MEANING FIRST COMEBACK PERFORMANCE) would be at coachella, as part as of an exclusive deal to create hype and all that.

Slash would be bad ass ... but I really want to see Maynard with Rage, and that is not out of the question now with new the tour dates. I won't hold by breath though.

I bet David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Chris Frantz and Jerry Harrison come out during his set. Tom will say "FUCK OFF JERRY!" when Jerry tries to play guitar and relegate him to synths. They will proceed to play politically charged tunes like "Girlfriend Is Better", "Making Flippy Floppy" and "Take Me To The River".

Oh my god... that sounds amazing!
But I would actually like Tom Morello to sing, instead of Perry Farrel haha.
I actually quite like Tom Morello's voice. However, this year IS missing Perry Farrel, so it wouldnt surprise me. But Slash would fuckin blow my mind!

Sorry for the double post...
But read the article!!!

Les fuckin Claypool joined them on stage and played bass for a bit!
I can see it now... Primus getting added to Coachella, then Les commin out and playing a song or two with The Nightwatchman.
Wow, this now makes The Nightwatchman my #3 MUST see!

MadMatt

Claypool would be bad ass. Two of the most talented musicians of this day on stage. I'm sure Tom will surprise us with someone ....

His skills and style are out of this world.

Tom's got boys huh? Slash, Les, Perry, forget about it. His album is going to be low key, yet monumental. I always described Nightwatchman as Dylanesque and it's great to see other atists apart for the Axis recognize this. I don't expect too much outside support at Coach, but maybe one or two special guests, from rage or elsewhere. Coach won't have an unexpected showing like this. Perry or other big stars probably won't show without their own act. Thanks, Madmatt for posting this, extremely exciting for me!!

Perry could he's friends with the promoter i believe or they have some kind of connection that's why he's there every year.

the morello guestlist is bad-ass.
while coachella hasn't amassed the status of sxsw (they got tom waits people), it is on it's way.
more guest performances are on the horizon.

this might have been a marketing ploy, to garner interest in his live show and new album. the videos on youtube of his solo act don't point to anything amazing, so the guests add the fuel and matches to a pile of hay.

The Nightwatchman was original in my top 10 artists on the festival!
This makes them my number #3! (underneath Rage and Gogol Bordello)
But even if he doesnt have any guests, his solo music is still great to listen to.

I think he's a great song writer. He's not going to raise hell, but he can really wow you if you listen to the songs. He wouldn't be getting the support that he is if there was nothing there. That's just dumb to think these guys are out there with Tom to make him a few bucks or make him seem better than he is. He really doesn't need the support to justify his music.

ghettojournalist
03-17-2007, 11:36 PM
technically, he does. almost every solo effort from a band mainstay needs to justify their divergence. while i may have been crass to attribute the appearances to only marketeering, but it is a factor. personally, i feel that it is just another legendary sxsw moment. i can't wait for coachella to garner more of these moments.

Mo'rage
03-17-2007, 11:43 PM
Yeah it will def. help him out and raise awareness about him. Most people looking at the coachella bill probably don't even know who that is. I think he's good enough without any help, but yeah, it's always interesting for a solo act to have guests.

rage patton
03-17-2007, 11:44 PM
I will watch him wether he plays completely solo, or with guests.
I really dont care!
Just if he brings some guests, it will be a special treat! :)

Mr.Nipples
03-17-2007, 11:56 PM
i dont know if anyone is really going to care but ibanez is making a new guitar for morello to replace his "arm the homeless" ax in time for the new round of shows.

Seriously? I love it. Tom actually have a really good voice. A lot like Johnny Cash.
But the real question is, what does MAYNARD have in store for us!?!?

A mysterious absense of a date on April 29. Is there a band playing at Coachella on Sunday that Maynard has worked with? Hmmm...
To top it off, I read Tom, Tim and Brad have been working with Maynard on his latest project Puscifier.

he cant use the 'arm the homeless' guitar anymore because the neck is bowed and he doesnt want to replace it.

03-18-2007, 09:54 PM
....first off, I'd definitely take the odds on the Maynard/Know Your Enemy wager. (and hasn't TOOL postponed those April dates because Danny got hurt?)

anyhow, I saw Morello play a show in NYC while the 2004 RNC was going on. he brought out Boots Riley from the Coup to do a few songs (including 5 Million Ways to Kill a CEO), which were totally off the hook. I think we'll get the Coachella equivalent of what just went down at SXSW for parts of his Nightwatchmen show.

I only see 2 emo bands on this entire bill.
Them being Jacks Mannequin and Circa Survive
So if your refering to ALL the other bands playing... you are greatly mistaken.
If your just talking about those 2 bands... your right. Tom Morello will "school" them all. But I think thats a given.

Anyways, common Maynard!!! I have hope.

apparently, tool will be playing the 27th and 28th in reno. something is scheduled for the 30th, but the twenty ninth, the night rage is rocking (a short drive from there) is completely open. they even changed they're schedule.
i'm guessing (more hoping) that he'll stop in. looking at maynard's time-table, it's hard to think that he won't. he'll just be too close.

Well this is Tom's story about sxsw per nightwatchmanmusic.com.. Wouldn't expect this kind of thing to happen more than once a century. Pure luck according to him. He might get support at Coach, but I honestly doubt from people of the stature that played with him there

"Hey there! I just got back from the SXSW extravaganza in Austin, TX. and I'll tell you, it was quite a time. Got up at about five a.m. to go to the airport on Thursday and when I arrived in Texas, I hit the ground running. I played a few early Nightwatchman sets for radio stations around the country and all of this led up to the big show on Thursday night. I had hoped to have friends down with me to play "Hotel Cafe" style, but I was very surprised by the exceptional turnout for what was to become one of my favorite nights of music ever. First of all, who just happened to be on my plane flying to Texas, and I recognized him because I saw a guy carrying his famous hat walking past. So I followed the hat and it eventually led to Slash. I tracked him down and asked him to come and play that night and he was more than happy to oblige. Then later, right before showtime, I got a text message from Les Claypool saying that he was in the area so I asked him to come down as well. Already built into the evening were Perry Farrell and his great new band, Satellite Party, featuring Nuno Bettencourt on guitar, and then our dear friend, Wayne Kramer, was also in town for the conference and was lured to the stage as well. On drums, of course, was the effervescent Breckin Meyer, star of stage and screen. That was the line up for what was a very exciting evening. Perry thought that he was going to have to leave after about a half hour so rather than saving the Jane's Addiction jams for the finale, everybody on the stage, Slash and company, opened the set with Jane's Addiction's "Mountain Song" and the roof nearly came off of the place. We rocked "Ain't No Right", one of my all time favorite Jane's jams. Before the multitude left the stage, I played a five song Nightwatchman set which was well received by the now pumped up crowd. Our good friend Alexi Murdoch was in town as well and the ensemble returned to the stage to play one of his songs. Then Wayne Kramer took the mic for a ripping version of the MC5s all time great jams, "Kick Out The Jams". Then it was time once again for everybody to return to the stage to share lead vocals on the Woody Guthrie rebel anthem "This Land Is Your Land" to close out he set with a highlight that I will not soon forget. So many thanks to all the great musicians involved at the Thursday's night show and to the fans who were there to soak it all up. But that was only day one! We ended up late that night at a restaurant where we actually happened to run into Boots Riley who was sneaking up behind us on a rickshaw and he joined us for some hotcakes but we sadly did not get to jam with him."
