Drummer Brad Wilk Remains Hopeful Rage Against The Machine Will Return One Day


While Audioslave and Prophets Of Rage have kept 3/4th of Rage Against The Machine (sans vocalist Zack de la Rocha) in close quarters over the years, drummer Brad Wilk hopes that one day a proper Rage Against The Machine reunion will take place. Prophets Of Rage in particular have been performing reworked versions of numerous Rage Against The Machine tracks with Public Enemy‘s Chuck D and Cypress Hill‘s B-Real on vocals.

Speaking recently with Dean Del Ray on his ‘Let There Be Talk‘ podcast (see below,) Wilk commented:

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

When asked why the band haven’t managed to return to active duty, he replied:

“It’s always been something different. It’s always been somebody different. It’s always something. 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.”

Speaking further on a potential reunion, he stated:

“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.”
