Guitarist Tom Morello, most famous for his guitar playing in the band Rage Against The Machine, has a net worth of $60 million. In addition to his net worth, he has achieved the recognition of his peers and fans as one of the greatest guitarists in music, famous for his distinctive playing style, which utilizes feedback and audio effects. In 1991, Morello began forming Rage Against The Machine, which would go on to become a recording phenomenon thanks to his blistering guitar work and the band's proclivity for politically charged lyrics. They were also famous for their attention grabbing stunts, such as when bassist Tim Commerford climbed a high scaffold during the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards. After Rage Against The Machine broke up, Morello joined the supergroup Audioslave along with Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell. Since his work with these two famous bands, Morello has worked on a variety of projects, including solo work. He's also worked on film soundtracks, such as Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, and Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story. He has also found work as a comic book writer, writing the miniseries Orchid for Dark Horse Comics. He is also writing a song to accompany each issue of the series.
Thomas Baptiste Morello (born May 30, 1964) is a Grammy Award-winning American guitarist best known for his tenure with the bands Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, his acoustic solo act The Nightwatchman, and his newest group, Street Sweeper Social Club. Tom is also the co-founder (along with Serj Tankian) of the non-profit political activist organization Axis of Justice, which airs monthly on KPFK 90.7FM in Los Angeles. He is best known for his unique and creative guitar playing style, which incorporates feedback noises, unconventional picking and tapping as well as heavy use of guitar effects. He was ranked #26 in Rolling Stone's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time."
Tom Morello was born on May 30, 1964, in Harlem, New York, to Ngethe Njoroge and Mary Morello. Tom is of Irish and Italian descent on his maternal side, and Kikuyu Kenyan descent on his paternal side. His mother was a schoolteacher from Marseilles, Illinois, who earned a Master of Arts at Loyola University, Chicago and travelled to Germany, Spain, Japan, and Kenya as an English language teacher between 1977 to 1983. His father was a Kenyan participant in the Mau Mau Uprising, and served as Kenya's first ambassador to the United Nations. Morello's paternal great-uncle, Jomo Kenyatta, was the first elected president in Kenyan history. His parents met in August 1963, while attending a pro-democracy protest in Nairobi, Kenya. After discovering her pregnancy, Mary returned to the United States with Njoroge in November, and married in New York City.
When Morello was 16 months old, Njoroge returned to his native Kenya, and denied his paternity of his son. Morello was raised solely by his mother in Libertyville, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. There he attended Libertyville High School, where his mother was a U.S. history teacher. She was the homeroom teacher for Tom's classmate and fellow guitarist Adam Jones, of the band Tool, while teaching at Libertyville. Tom sang in the school choi
