Rage Against the Machine reunite

In some of the best music news in a long while, Rage Against the Machine will be coming back together after a seven-year haitus to play the 2007 Coachella Festival in April.

Rage Against the Machine where a force in the 90's, introducing a form of rap-metal which dozens of bands have miserably failed to imitate. Despite the fact most of the band continued on in the form of Audioslave (Tom Morello, Brad Wilk, Tim Commerford plus Chris Cornell) - a good band in their own right - nothing can match the intensity of the original lineup. I managed to catch Rage live at the 2000 HFStival in DC, and I'm happy I was able to witness one of the most powerful live acts of my generation before they called it quits.

Whether or not the band will stick together beyond the festival date seems uncertain, but ideally Zack de la Rocha and company will find a way to record again.

I lost my wallet at that show...

I'm curious to see how this turns out. I wonder what Chris Cornell is thinking?

Your blog is very good with short pieces, good photos, good font/format.

I don't have much to add except you may have to test your readers to see if you're covering too many diverse topics.

You seem most interested in music, might just stick with that.

Also if you're commenting on things long in the news, what does it add for the reader.

Keep up the good work.
