Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello has put out a call for "10,000 guitar players" to join him on Tuesday (May 1st) for Occupy Wall Street demonstrations in New York City. Morello wrote on Twitter, "I'm putting a new band together and ur in it. Our 1st rehearsal is tomm noon (at) Bryant Park in NYC. Looking for about 10,000 guitar players." He added, "Join my new band! Don't have a guitar? Bring a drum. No drum? Bring a kazoo. No kazoo? Just come."
Morello, a staunch progressive and fierce political activist, has performed at a number of Occupy camps around the world, including those in London, Los Angeles and New York.
The demonstration scheduled for Tuesday in New York will feature an "occupation" of Bryant Park in midtown Manhattan as well as a march from Union Square to the lower part of the island.
On Tuesday, which is also known as May Day or International Worker's Day, Morello will also launch his World Wide Rebel Tour documentary worldwide for free, with 42 unique, customized versions in 30 different languages.
The 30-minute documentary was filmed at Henson Studios in Los Angeles last August and features an interview with Morello, mixed with live performances of songs from his 2011 album as The Nightwatchman, World Wide Rebel Songs.
Each version of the film will feature the interview questions in a different language, with Morello's answers subtitled appropriately. Some of the interviews are conducted by fellow musicians such as System Of A Down's Serj Tankian, Cypress Hill's Sen Dog.
Morello will also perform on Tuesday night's edition of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon alongside Ben Harper and the Roots.
