Prophets Of Rage Make America Rage Again At The Whisky A GoGo

pro

This Tuesday morning, Prophets of Rage, the Rage Against the Machine, Public Enemy and Cypress Hill supergroup, sold tickets for their first concert ever at the Whisky a GoGo. Although Tom Morello doesn’t like the term supergroup – he declared to Rolling Stone, ‘We’re not a supergroup, we’re an elite task force of revolutionary musicians determined to confront this mountain of election year bullshit, and confront it head-on with Marshall stacks blazing – I can’t practically refer to them with this long denomination.

I have no doubt you all wanted to be part of this enterprise (confronting this mountain of election year bullshit?), but there was nevertheless a big problem, tickets had to be bought in person at the venue’s box office at 10 am. So you had to be basically unemployed or a die-hard fan ready to take a day off?

Tickets sold our very fast as you can imagine – they were only $20 and for a great cause as they benefit People Assisting the Homeless (PATH) – and if you feel bad about that, you should not. The superband, err sorry, the elite task force of revolutionary musicians, announced on their social media that Prophets of Rage will be coming to The Hollywood Palladium this Friday with tickets going on sale this Thursday. Will there be a regular online sale this time? It’s not certain as this gig sale seems to be so short notice, Thursday is basically after tomorrow, and may be this revolutionary soldiers want to avoid Ticketmaster and the scalper nightmare.

In case you were wondering where Zack de la Rocha is, well, he is not taking part of this. Speaking on KROQ this morning, Tim Commerford nevertheless confirmed de la Rocha’s support: ‘I spoke with him. It was great. I let him know what was going on and got his blessing. Chuck and I both spoke with him and so did B, and it feels really good. I love that guy.’

Brad Wilk also revealed to Rolling Stone that Zack is making a record right now: ‘I have nothing but love and respect for him. I hope he’s doing well and creating the record that I think he’s making.’ And Commerford added they never had the intention to replace Zack: ‘I spoke to Zack and got his blessing, and that’s really great. We’re a family and there’s support across the board. I support him and everything he does, and vice versa. I’ve definitely been keeping him in the know. You’re never going to replace Zack, and we aren’t trying to do that. He’s a unique artist and showman. It’s going to take people that I know he looks up to and that he idolizes and that he’s inspired by. We’re going to plug them in and see what they can do with these songs, because at the end of the day it’s all about the songs. The songs are needed right now, they really are. This is gonna be some cool shit.’

I guess we will know a bit more after their first show, tonight at the Whisky a GoGo.
