Rage Against The Machine man finishes solo album

De La Rocha's debut is 'Led Zep meets Dr. Dre'

Rage Against The Machine frontman Zack De La Rocha has completed his debut solo album, which was seven years in the making.

De La Rocha collaborated closely with former Mars Volta drummer Jon Theodore, and Billboard.com quotes a source that says it sounds like �Led Zeppelin meets Dr Dre�.

Since leaving the band in 2000, De La Rocha has work with several artists including DJ Shadow and Trent Reznor, but it is not yet known if these artists will feature on the album.

The report also reveals that some of the album was recorded at an eco-friendly studio in Los Angeles, owned by Jack Johnson.

Since De La Rocha is currently unsigned, a release date is unconfirmed.

Meanwhile, the reunited Rage Against The Machine play the following shows this fall:

New Orleans City Park – Voodoo Music Experience (October 27)

Las Vegas Sam Boyd Stadium – Vegoose Festival (28)
