Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine has played a set at the Occupy Wall Street demonstration in Manhattan, New York City. Appearing in his Nightwatchman guise yesterday (October 13), the politically minded guitarist who appeared at the Occupy Los Angeles demonstration last week played a number of acoustic tracks and led the protestors in a singalong to Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land". Scroll down to watch fan-shot footage of the performance. Morello also spoke to the crowd about the "1,300 cities and towns" which are now taking part in similar anti-corporate protests across the world. Kanye West visited the Occupy Wall Street protests alongside Russell Simmons, the co-founder of record label Def Jam earlier this week. Visiting the Zuccotti Park camp on October 10, the hip-hop star walked through the crowds, but did not take the opportunity to perform a set for the protestors, unlike Talib Kweli and Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel, who have both visited the Manhattan camp and played impromptu gigs. After their visit, Simmons tweeted: "I just walked @kanyewest through the #occupywallstreet. I love how sweet and tolerant he was to the crowd."
Thanks for the report to Nme.com.
