25th Anniversary of the R & R Hall of Fame

I watched this a couple of weeks ago and it was freakin' amazing! Please watch it if you get the chance. I fell in love again:

Tom Morello is the most amazing guitar player I've ever seen. I have never really listened to Rage Against the Machine but I want to. Does anyone have a title suggestion of one of their cds I could start with? BTW, if you don't want to watch the whole video, you should at least watch the last 3 minutes. This guy left me speechless!

I took a brief look at their website. RATM (and Watchman) are very active human rights advocates. I do enjoy music that simply entertains, but the music I love most is the kind that makes me think and feel. Some, like Aimee Mann help me on a personal level. Listening to her is almost like doing therapy. And then the politically active musicians encourage us to make the world a better place.

What's interesting about "The Ghost of Tom Joad" is that I did like it when I first heard it, but it didn't really hit me hard until I saw Springsteen/Morello doing it on that show.

I know of Tom Morello. He's one of my friends at myspace. I haven't seen him live, but I have 2 of the albums he did with Audioslave.
