Angel’s Rock Report–Slipknot, Tom Morello [AUDIO]
Slipknot fans can relax — the band is definitely going to do another album, according to percussionist Shawn Crahan. Although the other members, including frontman Corey Taylor, haven’t confirmed that the group is planning to record anymore after bassist Paul Gray‘s death last year, Crahan tells Kerrang magazine, “There’s plans [to make another record], but that’s a way off. No one will push it, because it’s going to be a big one. It’ll be closer to Iowa, but it’ll be sadder and crazier. And really thought-provoking — it could even be conceptual.”
Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello became the latest musician to play for the people of Occupy Wall Street in New York. Morello — as his alter ego The Nightwatchman — performed four acoustic songs yesterday at noon, including a cover of Woody Guthrie‘s “This Land Is Your Land.” Since the park has rules against amplification, Morello used the crowd to repeat his instructions to sing along with the “This Land Is Your Land” chorus — and to jump up and down like a mini mosh pit.
During his last song, “World Wide Rebel Song,” Morello invited the crowd to join him on stage, which caused a massive crush as he played (as you can see in the pic).
Afterward, Morello attempted to hold an impromptu press conference on the sidewalk next to the park, but police forced him to go back into the park so pedestrians could pass by.
Adelitas Way and The Art of Dying are teaming up for a co-headlining tour. Mostly Texas dates right now but watch for more dates to be announced.
