Tom Morello’s Great Solos

Tom Morello was in Cuba with Audioslave.. .He was also great as always.

Mitt Romney is not the only United States Republican politician who is in trouble with musicians.

So is Romney’s running mate, vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan.

From the Huffington Post in the USA:

Tom Morello: Paul Ryan ‘Is The Embodiment Of The Machine Our Music Rages Against’

Paul Ryan has previously cited Rage Against the Machine as his favorite band, but the group’s guitarist isn’t returning the niceties. In a blistering op-ed published Thursday night on Rolling Stone‘s website, Tom Morello blasts Mitt Romney’s new VP choice as “the embodiment of the machine our music rages against.”

In painting Ryan as antithetical to progress, Morello compares the Congressman’s appreciation of RATM to Charles Manson‘s love for The Beatles and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s liking for Bruce Springsteen.

At the heart of Morello’s distaste for Ryan is “his guiding vision of shifting revenue more radically to the one percent.” He goes on to say Ryan has plenty of “rage,” but claims its “A rage against women, a rage against immigrants, a rage against workers, a rage against gays, a rage against the poor, a rage against the environment.”

    Philomena Lynott told BBC Radio she was disgusted when she found out.

    “He would not want his music to be played by people whose politics are against gay people – what is wrong with gay people?”
