ZACK DE LA ROCHA HAS LEFT RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE!
Zack De La Rocha, singer/song writer for Rage Against the Machine has left the band. De La Rocha left the band on October 18th after much speculation about inter-band problems. De La Rocha said "I feel that it is now necessary to leave Rage because our decision-making process has completely failed. It is no longer meeting the aspirations of all four of us collectively as a band, and from my perspective, has undermined our artistic and political ideals. I am extremely proud of our work, both as activists and musicians, as well as indebted and grateful to every person who has expressed solidarity and shared this incredible experience with us."
De La Rocha has done some resent colaborations and is also working on a solo career. Even though Zack has left the band, the new CD will still be released in November.
