Prophets of Rage members Brad Wilk and Chuck D discussed January’s Anti-Inaugural Ball show in a new Metal Injection interview.
At the Ball, Audioslave reunited for a three song set and Cornell joined Prophets of Rage to perform Rage Against The Machine’s “Killing In The Name.” The concert was held the same day as President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
Wilk said, “It wasn’t even a thought in my head that it was the last performance with him. However, I appreciated the moment when it was happening. His passing caught us all by surprise. The good thing is he left so much incredible music behind and his legacy is still in tact. He was a sweet-hearted guy at the end of the day. He’ll be really missed. We cover ‘Like a Stone’ as a tribute sometimes in our sets and I think we’ll be doing that tonight.”
Chuck D added, “We played with Chris at the Anti-Inaugural Ball. It was great. I couldn’t believe a guy that tall and long could jump off a stage like he did. And what I mean to say by that is everybody looked at him as a guy who crossed a threshold having a good time, but things are always day to day for everybody.”
