Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello has joined an extensive list of artists who have signed up to join Occupy Musicians, a newly-launched online initiative for "sound engineers, sound artists, producers, DJs, instrumentalists, composers, and lyricists" who support the Occupy Movement and its syndicate of protests in cities on all corner of the globe.

Rage Against the Machine guitar virtuoso Tom Morello brings his message of peace wherever he travels, even when he happens to find himself between two dudes arguing outside his concert.

The revolution is being televised -- and Facebooked, Tweeted and YouTubed. As expected, Tom Morello took to the streets around New York's Wall Street today (Oct. 13) to perform an acoustic set under his Nightwatchman guise in support of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Fans and protestors alike were out in full force with digital cameras ready to document every guitar strum, vocal line and inspiring call to action by the Rage Against the Machine axe-man..
Tom Morello returned to VH1 Classic's 'That Metal Show' on the programs' latest episode, which aired Saturday night (Sept. 3).
Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello is keeping busy these days playing gigs as his alter ego, the Nightwatchman, and getting ready for the Justice Tour. The three-date trek will benefit the Nation Institute, which supports independent media, and features Morello, Rise Against frontman Tim McIlrath and MC5’s Wayne Kramer.
