    Default morello explains why RAGE they are playing coachella...

    i always told my bros that rage would reunite in 07 or 08 becuase they want to speak out. this confirms it a little and i win the bet joe! - from mtv.com

    AUDIOSLAVE/ex-RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE guitarist Tom Morello spoke to MTV.com about RAGE's decision to reunite for the eighth annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California, on April 29. According to Morello, RAGE will be taking the stage with a singular mission in mind.

    "To deliver a knockout blow to the Bush administration," Morello explained in his first interview since RAGE's reunion announcement January 22. "And hopefully, one night in the desert is all it will take. They're teetering, so ..."

    "Is it coincidence that in the seven years that RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE has been away that the country has slid into right-wing purgatory? I think not," he said. "It occurred to all of us that the times were right to see if we can knock the Bush administration out in one fell swoop, and we hope to do that job well. This administration has done enough damage that it may take generations to undo. This is an administration that believes it's beyond the laws of the land, which is fine for emperors, but not so great for presidents. One thing this president isn't above is the laws of physics, and there is no action without reaction. And we're part of that reaction."

    For now, RAGE are playing just one show, Morello said but he wouldn't rule out the possibility of future RAGE activities.

    Seriously, I agree. Some people on here amaze me. What should he do then just play for free everywhere. The man is a legend who writes kick ass music that people pay money to see. He's earned his right to live the good life whenever he needs to. Believe me, I'm not so sure about Zach's situation but considering their three albums and the fact that Audioslave sells out every single one of their shows in minutes, I'm sure Morello isn't doing this show for the money. But hey why shouldn't he get paid, he's performing a service.

    Because if he was that concerned with performing that service that he claims will be for the benifit of all humanity he shouldn't need money.

    some people believe in doing things for nothing and honor. i understand and respect the honor part. but if someone says hey we will give you 1 1/2 million to do your type of show, would u say no? should they get fucked by the system that fucked over every artist in the 50's and many more? chuck berry was a legend and got paid shit and had to play fucking fairs just to get by. id rather see rage get paid then k-fed. u know?

    Exactly. And Mcfearless do you think your ticket for this festival would be any cheaper if Rage said that they would pay for free. If thats the case then you're really clueless. That would just be more money in the pockets of whoever is putting this on. They all deserve their piece of the pie on this one too.

    Oh, I highly doubt they are struggling musicans and need my blankets.

    If they were to take less money. Thatd be nice. Prob would have driven the price of tickets down even slightly.

    Sorry my friend but not a chance of this one. The price for Coachella was set long before Rage decided to hop on the bill.

    Ticket prices are reasonable. They have been taking money since they were signed to Epic in 1991, when they needed it.

    bad marketing from bad communists/progressive democrats

    The level of self congratulation or delusion is strong with this one
