Tom Morello currently from Prophets of Rage joined Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich on his Beats One radio show called It’s Electric. Lars gets Tom to open up about the new Tom Morello solo album The Atlas Underground and reflect on his past, including Rage Against The Machine.
“For a band that had extremely combustible elements, to be able to have made four records, to be able to have played the shows we did, I think it’s a miracle.” Tom added, “I was not always sensitive to the emotional needs of my band members. And everybody has their role in it, but that’s where I contributed to the chaos that eventually ended the band.”
Tom also goes into detail on the writing and recording process with Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave and of course Prophets of Rage. Plus Tom gives his own Metallica story. Watch the full conversation between Lars and Tom below.
The Atlas Underground is due out on October 12th.
