Tom Morello, guitarist for Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave, is less known for his folk music, which he plays under the alias “The Nightwatchman”. He has explained, “The Nightwatchman is my political folk alter ego. I’ve been writing these songs and playing them at open mic nights with friends for some time. This is the first time I’ve toured with it. When I play open mic nights, it’s announced as The Nightwatchman. There will be kids there who are fans of my electric guitar playing, and you see them there scratching their heads.
But it’s something that I enjoy doing. I look at it more as an extension of my politics. Then again, some of the songs are not explicitly political. It really helped me grow as an artist and songwriter.”

Tom!!! Fancy meetin' you here :P

I haven't seen you since that underground show in the San Francisco Mission three years ago!

It is absolutely wonderful that you are putting your music out into the world. You are an absolute angel and an inspiration :)

Big love from SF,

Truly a guitar god, to see him play with Audioslave was mind blowing. The fact that he is able to switch to acoustic and still kick ass is amazing!
