Rage Against The Machine is know for their politically charged lyrics, effects-laden guitar work courtesy of guitarist Tom Morello, and blending of musical styles. Something else they have become known for is the inner turmoil within the band. A recent Twitter exchange between Morello and a fan has shed some light on the current situation.

With this and previous quotes from drummer Brad Wilk and bassist Tim Commerford suggesting that they are all open to working together everything points to vocalist Zack de la Rocha as the reason behind the band’s current status.
I guess we just have to wait and see until more information surfaces from the band as a collective. Maybe Zack will get wind of the Tweets and issue a statement. Like I said, it’s a matter of patience.
