He has been doing a few shows with a guy named Ike Reilly from the

Ike Reilly Assasination. They are both from the same home town in IL

Anything has to be better than his last album. How did a guy with a Harvard education write such terrible lyrics? And you have to admit...he added his real name because the last album didn't sell. Sorry to rip.

Tom is phenomenal, but I wasn't too big on his last album. I'll still check it out.

His show at Bonnaroo last year was one of the most horrible and embarrassing things I have ever witnessed in my life. It was hard to watch.

I don;t like the nightwatchman, but He is one of the greatest guitrists of all time. And when he came out with TOOL and Roo last year, I 'bout shit me britches! That moment alone made my whole trip last year.

sounds like alot of you who don't like The Nightwatchman haven't even listened to his songs. "battle hymns", "maximum firepower", "until the end", "alone without you", "garden of gethsemane", "dark clouds above", "no one left", "house gone up in flames", "stars of orion", "let freedom ring" etc.. are incredible

...."i've a photographic memory of the deeds i will avenge,

i'm the cold in the river hollow,

i've a hatpin, i've a plan,

and i don't care of cause or consequence,

head shaved and body lean,

i'm the go getter the SCORE SETTLER,

i'm the shadow on the f****** green..."

excerpt from "battle hymnSSS"

I loves me some Rage .... But yes .... The NightWatchman stuff?

Really didn't a thing for me.

What I am looking forward to is the new project Morello is working on with Stanton Moore and Boots Riley called StreetSweeper.

You just know it will be so kickass it could knock the stink off a monkey.

Whatever happened to the collaboration of Tom, Stanton Moore, and Boots Riley? Anyone know?
