Music news part 1: Rage Against the Machine reunites at Coachella. Zach de la Rocha: "Our current administration needs to be tried, hung and shot," the singer boldly stated. "We need to treat them like the war criminals they are."
Sedition my ass.
Guitarist Tom Morello: "To me, it seems that the world needs songs of rebellion and revolution right now. It's exciting, man."
Keith Spera writes: "Finally equipped with a working microphone, Rebennack growled "Right Place, Wrong Time." Jazzfest, however, turned out to be neither the right place nor the right time for Cyril Neville. Advertised as one of the Social Club's guest stars, he pulled a Bobby Charles and didn't show. Neville apparently backed out several days ago, to the frustration of his bandmates. Why? "He was unavailable," Nocentelli said, diplomatically. Porter was more direct: "Cyril has a problem with New Orleans."
No. Cyril just has a fucking problem. I love Leo No, he tends to repeat himself as a guitar soloist; but man, let me hear him wail all day rather than deal with Cyril's bitchin. George tells it like it is.
H/T to Gary and Seymour for the heads up on my buddy Cyril.
All hell can't stop us now.
