Our very own, Eric Bobo, spoke to Billboard about his late father Willie Bobo’s musical legacy.
“He was the life of the party,” says Eric Bobo, who adopted his father’s stage name, but is also known by the family’s given last name, Correa. “You’d go somewhere and the spotlight was on him. He took his music very seriously. He ruled it with an iron first and it had it be right; he was a great performer.”

“”We’re an elite task force of revolutionary musicians determined to confront this mountain of election year bullshit, and confront it head-on with Marshall stacks blazing.” – Tom Morello
“We’re going to surprise people with how we put this all down. There are so many Rage songs that I love, but I think everybody’s favorite is “Bulls on Parade.” It just has a tremendous amount of energy. At this point, it’s hard to pinpoint what the setlist will be, what will make the cut and what won’t. We’re having fun in the process.” – B-Real
“Actually, Tom talked to my wife first. She’s very deep into the politics of Latinos, blacks, inequalities and stuff like that. They had a great conversation. For years I heard the rumor that Zack isn’t going to perform with Rage Against Machine and they’ll need someone to fill in. I talked to Tom and said, ‘Sure.'” – Chuck D
