Rage Against the Machine Drummer Undergoes Surgery

Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk may be taking some time away from his kit for a while.

Wilk underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus.

Wilk shared on Instagram on Wednesday, “Torn meniscus knee surgery going down today. Got a lot of hard notes outa this knee.”

Wilk will have plenty of time to recover before Rage Against the Machine kicks off their tour in March of 2022.

Have you had any surgeries like this? What was recovery like? Are you looking forward to seeing Rage Against the Machine on tour?
