RATM Will Probably Never Perform Together Again, Says Brad Wilk
Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk says the band will probably never perform together again.

The sticksman, who appeared on Black Sabbath's comeback album "13" last year, believes his outfit's headline slot at the LA Rising festival in 2011 was their swan song.

He tells Pulse of Radio (via ClassicRockMagazine): "As far as I know, we played our last show at the Coliseum - and if that was our last show, that's a good way to go out.

"I sort of had to put it in my head that that band is over in order for me to just move on with my life, to be honest with you, so that's kind of where that lies."

Guitarist Tom Morello hinted in 2012 that RATM had come to an end when he told Rolling Stone: "Whether or not we ever play music again in any capacity is unknown." He added: "I'm grateful for the music we played together."

In 2009, their anthem "Killing In The Name" took the UK Christmas number one single slot after a campaign by music fans to prevent the X Factor gameshow winner taking top spot for the fifth year in a row. At the time frontman Zach de la Rocha described the chart victory as "an incredible organic grassroots campaign." They later played a free concert in London to celebrate the event.
