Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello tells Billboard he’s planning on releasing another solo record — only this time, he’ll use electric guitars.
After several acoustic releases from Morello as the Nightwatchman, the former Audioslave axeman says he’s ready to get back to rocking like a magic kiss.
The news comes on the heels of Bruce Springsteen’s new album; Morello’s musicianship is on full display on the release.
When Morello played a show in Anaheim with the Boss recently, it occurred to him to plug back in for his next solo outing.
“It was on that (Anaheim) stage that I realized there might be a way to combine all the things I do as a songwriter and a guitar player, and this record is going to be that,” says Tom.
Morello, I can attest, is a salt of the Earth type. When I was at MTV News, I spoke with him often, and he was always totally charming and nothing if not intelligent.
Morello also says he doesn’t consider himself a member of the E Street Band at this point, but that he’d be honored to be part of it.
