Thread: What does Morello have in store for Coachella?

    Default 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!

    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.

    He did something once, so that means he HAS to do it again now? I have a feeling some of you will be very disappointed.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
