Left-wing Audioslave rocker Tom Morello has toned down his anti-government beliefs - four years after hitting the headlines at the 2000 Democratic National Convention.

The former Rage Against The Machine guitarist was quieter than usual at the labour rally in New York this week (30AUG-02SEP04), to protest against the Republican National Convention (RNC), where he sang Woody Guthrie's THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND on an acoustic guitar.

Morello has promised to play "music that cuts to the core of people's lives" at the forthcoming ROCK AGAINST BUSH TOUR from 18 September (04).
