When Bruce Springsteen asked Tom Morello to join the E Street Band for a tour of Australia last year, the former Rage Against the Machine guitarist couldn’t have known that filling in for Steve Van Zandt onstage would also land Morello on Springsteen’s next album.
Tom Morello has been speaking truth to power with his music since the earliest days of Rage Against the Machine, so it’s only natural that he’s using his songs to support one of the largest protest movements in recent memory.
After performing for the Occupy Los Angeles protesters last weekend, Morello is crossing the country to do the same for the Occupy Wall Street crowd October 13.
A who’s who of hard rock heroes will grace the Los Angeles set of the VH1 Classic series ‘That Metal Show,’ which begins its eighth season Aug. 20 at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
The impressive guest list includes Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, ex-Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar, Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi and Slipknot/Stone Sour front man Corey Taylor.
