Zack de la Rocha Breaks Silence On Rage Against The Machine


Rage Against The Machine and Zack de la Rocha have announced a 2020 reunion tour, including performances at the Coachella festival, where the band first reunited in 2007. RATM have not performed live since the LA Rising Festival in July 2011, and Zack de la Rocha has largely remained silent and out of the public spotlight, outside of releasing a solo single and performing a few times with Run The Jewels. Rage Against The Machine were nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a couple of years ago, with a member unloading on a snub recently.

Just a few weeks ago, Zack met a fan at a store in Lincoln Heights, thanking him after his last LA Rising performance with Rage Against The Machine was complimented and taking a photo. Zack also revealed that he has a new Tesla car, something the reunion paycheck will definitely help pay for. A Rage Against The Machine reunion show was rejected by a big name.

The fan who met him said about the meeting, “He was super cool. I just told em hello I am a big fan saw you at LA Rising years back. Took the pic and left him alone. I felt like I was bugging him but he was nothing but nice as hell.”

Another fan wrote, “I hope he was in good spirits!! And, you’re looking thin around the face there bro!! If so, keep it up, you can start to see it!!”

The fan who met Zack responded, “I think he just dresses that way. He was super nice and high spirited though. Driving a brand new Tesla shopping for tile with his interior decorator.”

Rage Against The Machine will kick off their run of 2020 reunion shows in March with a few shows around the Mexican border, followed by two Coachella performances. Zack de la Rocha declined a 2016 Rage Against The Machine reunion tour, leading to Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, and Brad Wilk forming Prophets of Rage, who currently don’t have any tour dates scheduled. Howard Stern recently revealed why Rage Against The Machine really broke up.
