Rage Against the Machine’s founder and guitarist, Tom Morello, recently posted a photo with System of a Down’s Serj Tankian on his Instagram account and said that it’s always a pleasure to play with the famous rockstar while announcing that their Andy Gill tribute song is not available on all streaming platforms.
Tom Morello is without a doubt one of the most famous rockstars of all time and he’s mostly known as the founder and guitarist of Audioslave and Rage Against the Machine. Morello has collaborated with famous rockstars, such as the late Chris Cornell, and as it turns out, one of his favorite partners on stage is Serj Tankian.
As you may have heard, for the past months, Morello and Tankian have been working on a rendition of the iconic ‘Natural’s Not In It‘ track by Gang of Four as a tribute to both the unforgettable band and their guitarist. Just a couple of days ago, the duo’s rendition was uploaded on all streaming platforms and has already been enjoyed by thousands of people.
However, this is not the only song that Morello and Tankian will be releasing as the rockstars have actually been working on a Gang of Four tribute album named ‘The Problem of Leisure: A Celebration of Andy Gill and Gang of Four‘ which will be released in May. This album will be a tribute to Andy Hill, the band’s guitarist and mastermind who passed away in early 2020 due to a respiratory illness.
Before his passing, it was known that Andy was planning to release an album named ‘The Problem of Leisure’ so as to celebrate the 40th anniversary their band’s iconic album ‘Entertainment!’ As he didn’t get to do that, Morello and Tankian took it upon themselves to honor both Andy Gill and Gang of Four, just like the late rockstar would have wanted.
Here’s what Tom Morello said in the caption of his recent Instagram post:
“Always a pleasure to rock with my brother Serj Tankian. Our tribute to Andy Gill & Gang Of Four ‘Natural’s Not In It’ is out everywhere.”
