Rage Against The Machine disco debut :Quién era el de la foto


Rage Against The Machine’s self titled debut album cover features a photo of Thích Quảng Đức, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk, burning himself to death in Saigon in 1963. The photo was taken by Associated Press correspondent Malcolm Browne and earned the award of World Press Photo of the Year in 1963.

Kennedy to withdraw support of the Ngô Đình Diệm’s government.
