Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello discussed Soundgarden, Judas Priest, and Thin Lizzy’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame snubs on SiriusXM earlier this week, and he claimed he is doing everything he can to help get them inducted. Rage Against The Machine have received the biggest snub, as they aren’t even nominated after receiving a nomination a couple of years ago. Tom Morello recently leaked an emotional photo of former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante.
Morello said, “On my ONE MAN REVOLUTION radio show on Sirius/XM Lithium this week I featured music by some of this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees.”
A fan named Nick recapped, “Finally had a chance to listen to the show on-demand & here’s some things @tmorello said about this year’s ballot: It’s “a class jam-packed with great artists.” On getting the artists he wants in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he said “I’m fighting the good fight.” He introduced Soundgarden and played ‘Rusty Cage,’ but didn’t say anything else.
Howard Stern revealed why Rage Against The Machine really broke up last month. Nick added in his recap of Morello on SiriusXM, “Next, he introduced Judas Priest and said, ‘The greatest metal band that is not in the Rock Hall yet is Judas Priest…They certainly turned me on to harder rock and roll and heavy metal…I love this band and hope they get in.’
Next is Thin Lizzy who is a ‘long-time deserving nominee…that inspired the bands you like on Lithium and certainly a huge influence on myself.’ Just like Tom Morello, Phil Lynott’s multiracial ancestry made the former feel he ‘always had a kinship with Thin Lizzy.'” A Rage Against The Machine member being disrespected at a bar a couple of months ago was also sadly revealed.
