10/03/06 - AUDIOSLAVE Guitarist Tom Morello Talks About Arrest

Tom Morello, 42, spent last Thursday evening in lockup, upon his released on Friday morning, Morello had this to say "Bail was high," each arrestee had to pay $5,000. "But, spirits were higher". "We had a rousing civil rights-era-like hootenanny on the inside."

Morello was one of about 400 protesters arrested during a march last Thursday to raise awareness for immigrant hotel workers' rights. He was charged with unlawful assembly for refusing to move from the main entry road into Los Angeles International Airport.

Morello is a long time supporter of activism rights, in 2005, Audioslave played a free show in Cuba. It was the first American rock group to perform in that country in 26 years. Morello's former band, Rage Against the Machine, always discussed doing that concert, he said. "There were many roadblocks to keep Rage from playing Cuba, and some of them were generated by government bureaucracy, and some were generated by internal band conflict," Morello said in 2005, shortly after the trip.
