In his first career as a doorman at Chicago's Park Hyatt Hotel, Ike Reilly hobnobbed with everybody from businessmen to barflies, from partyers to politicos. He learned a lot. Like humility. "Everybody should have to work in the service industry at some point in their life," he says. That job might have been the perfect incubator for Reilly's music -- barroom rock narrated by a wiseguy who's as comfortable regaling PhDs and poets as he is pimps and porn stars.

Look for a commercial and cultural explosion in March when the second Rage Against the Machine album arrives. If the yet-to-be-named collection lives up to the promise and power of the Southern California group's 1992 debut and its show-stealing appearances on the 1993 Lollapalooza tour, the package should catapult Rage to a position alongside Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails and Hole as the American leaders in '90s rock. Led by the passionate, charismatic Zack de la Rocha, 24 (above, foreground)

Raging against the dying of this particular light, the lame-duck rock revolutionaries come up with an appropriate close to this chapter in their history, which ended with the recent departure of singer Zack de la Rocha.
