Rob Trujillo Praises The ‘Mighty Groove Master’ Tim Commerford And Rage Against The Machine

Metallica’s Rob Trujillo recently took to his Instagram to express his appreciation of Rage Against The Machine bassist Tim Commerford, describing the bassist as a mighty groove master.

After noting their 2011 performance at L.A. Rising was their final show in 2014, Rage Against The Machine remained relatively inactive. Instead of continuing together as RATM, Morello, Wilk, and Commerford formed the supergroup Prophets Of Rage and toured until 2019.

In February 2020, Rage Against The Machine announced their reunion tour, ‘Public Service Announcement Tour.’ Although the band had to reschedule the dates twice, they hit the road in the summer of 2022. On July 9, they played their first concert in 11 years in Wisconsin and have been touring since despite La Rocha’s leg injury.

Recently, the acclaimed photographer Glen. E. Friedman shared his insights about RATM’s appearance at the Madison Square Garden. As it seems, Metallica’s Rob Trujillo was also there to watch the band perform. In his recent Instagram post, Trujillo revealed his thoughts on the show.

The bassist described Tim Commerford as the mighty groove master and stated it was nice to see him and RATM on stage at Madison Square Garden. Saying he was proud of the band, the bassist congratulated them for selling out five shows at the venue 30 years after their first appearance with Suicidal Tendencies.

Rob Trujillo’s Instagram post read:

“Timmy C’ killed it last night! So nice to catch up with the mighty groove master and his tribe. Madison Square Garden got a funkified ass kickin’ (in the best way) Rage throwing down as they always do!

I was so proud of these dudes last night, they did their first ever tour opening for Suicidal just before the release of their first record in Europe, and here they are 30 years later selling out five shows at The Garden.”
