Jan. 21 [18:00 EST] -- Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello marked the presidential inaugural on Monday by staging the satellite-radio-and-Internet concert "Radio Free L.A."
Morello was joined by Rage singer Zack De La Rocha, Beck, Cypress Hill, Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Porno For Pyros drummer Stephen Perkins.
The show, broadcast from the Sony studios in Santa Monica, California, also offered phone interviews with Chuck D of Public Enemy, and three people with whom Rage has long allied itself: black writer Mumia Abu Jamal (imprisoned for killing a policeman), American-Indian leader Leonard Peltier (the subject of the band's 1994 single "Freedom," who's been imprisoned for 20 years), and the curiously accessible Mexican guerrilla leader who calls himself Sub-Commandante Marcos.
The concert was picked up by 60 radio stations around the country. Learn more at the Rage Against The Machine website.
