Rage Against The Machine
Stage FighterseBook - 2016
Rage Against The Machine changed the shape of music with their rampant self-titled debut album in 1992. Here was a politically charged troupe that took advantage of major label backing yet spoke out on issues that few stars in the spotlight dared to -- never afraid to insist their message was just as important as the music. The sales came in the millions and critical acclaim besieged them, until De La Rocha left the band in 2000. Instead of attempting to replace the inimitable orator, Morello and Company threw a curveball and hired ex-Soundgarden throat Chris Cornell to create a new band named Audioslave. Yet there was always the genius of Rage Against The Machine in the background and in 2007 the band reformed with De La Rocha included. Millions have waited a long time to see the spectacle unfold once again. This is the story of how a Harvard graduate and a poetical activist welded together, along with several capable cohorts, to create a bastion of youth revival and change through the medium of their striking, innovative material -- a glutton of musical riches which continues to amaze and inspire today. It is also the story about the power and durability of protest music as well as a glimpse into the future of one of the greatest bands of all-time. Unofficial and Unauthorised.
