Watch Rage Against The Machine & Red Hot Chili Peppers Members Play “Bulls On Parade”


Former Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave drummer Brad Wilk joined former Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro onstage at a recent Royal Machines show to perform RATM’s “Bulls on Parade” with Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath on lead vocals. Juliette Lewis also came onstage for a cover of Van Halen’s “Ain’t Talkin’ Bout Love”.

Earlier this year Wilk told Dean Delray on Let There Be Talk that he wants Rage Against The Machine to reunite again.

“Nothing would make me happier than to be able to fuck shit up right now with Rage Against The Machine,” stated Wilk. “It’s just really a matter of getting us all on the same page.”

While the absence of Zach de la Rocha is notable, Wilk said many things have kept Rage from reuniting. “It’s always been something different. It’s always been somebody different. It’s always something,” said the drummer. “For us, it’s kind of like the magnet theory. One magnet is always being pushed out. You’ve just got to get all of the magnets to stick together for a minute, and that’s always been our problem. I feel like a politician right now because I’m kind of skipping specifics, but that’s just kind of the best way I can answer it.”

But Wilk is confident that personality clashes that foil other bands is not something that would stand in the way with Rage. “If [a reunion] will happen again or not, I have no idea, but I know at least the four of us are amicable and can talk to each other, and actually even go hang out on occasion, so I think more we just want to be friends first more than anything,” said the drummer.
