Note For now, they still allow daud, and usually, if you ask ahead of time, you can get a board patch. Expect to make them a copy. In 12/98 the band was on record as saying that they may discontinue to allow taping in the future, after a bootleg video of them was found for sale on the internet.

Note At a festival in 2002. The bass player between songs told a passer by who was taking a video shot to stop and said audio and video recording is not allowed because of copyright laws. "please respect this".

Gatemouth was 100% against audio & video. During one performance, he stopped playing because he spotted a camcorder.

Died in September 2005.

From Good Homes
Location Sparta, NJ USA
Active No
Taping Status Audio, Board Access, Video Taping
Genre Unknown
Note DAT OK. They are still really cool about taping. One of their friends, John, usually runs a nice-sounding SBD/AUD mix that you can usually get a patch from if you get there early enough. If John is not there, Rob will generally give out a straight SBD patch, but not always. Bring all the appropriate cables and adapters. Mic stands and AUD taping is always allowed. If a venue's security ever stops you, ask them to check with the band (this could mean with Cal, or any of the band members, especially Todd, who's gone to bat for tapers numerous times and is a great guy). Rob Calabrese is still their soundman. If running dat, use a 90 meter. Many times they play one long set of 120-140 min. Bring extra batteries.

Active No
Taping Status Audio
Genre Rock
Note In an online chat transcript posted on Rage Against The Machine's official website (http://www.ratm.com/news/ragelog.html), the following Q/A arose between a fan and Tom Morello, the band's guitarist:

Moderator: Charlie, Oakland CA- Tom, do you object to people bootlegging your work and circulating it as MP3's?

Tom_Morello: I have no objection to people listening to Rage Against the Machine music for free. I'm not that familiar with MP3, but some friends have run off some great bootleg albums for me which I enjoy. When a shadow company takes the reigns though, and is profiting at the expense of the band and their fans, that's when I have a problem with it.

Later in the same chat, Tom Morello acknowledged the existence of bootleg recordings in the following Q/A:

Moderator: Q. Will you be releasing any more live albums in the future?

Tom_Morello: Well, we haven't released any live albums yet. Any live recordings out there are strictly bootlegs. We have recorded hundreds of shows over the last 6 years, and one day some of those live recordings will probably see the light of day.

Furthermore, in an article eulogizing Joe Strummer of the Clash on the official Audioslave (note: Audioslave is a band consisting of 3/4ths of the band members of Rage Against The Machine, including Morello) website (http://www.audioslave.com/tomessay.html), Tom Morello conveyed his positive attitude towards bootlegs, stating:

On the early Rage Against the Machine tours, Clash tapes and bootlegs were always the most important part of my on-the-road music collection. They were a tremendous inspiration and consolation on those long, freezing European bus rides.

Screaming Cheetah Wheelies
Location Nashville, TN USA

Taping Status Audio
Genre Unknown
Note To update this band, a few years ago they toured with ZZ Top and they must have gotten the big head over it as they had major taper policy changes after that tour..... no more video, no flash photos, no more boards, no mic stands.... just audience audio.

Funny thing is that some time after this policy was put into effect their fan base started eroding and they finally disbanded in 2001.

The lesson is when you are a struggling band, its better to allow fan taping and keep your music alive and circulating rather than shut the fan off and alienate your core fan base.

Elliott is in favor of taping of any kinds, but you should check with the venue ahead of time. Board patches are sometimes available if the venue allows it. If the venue doesn't know anything, then it is safe to go stealth.
