Fan First: Tom Morello on Chris Cornell, Zack de la Rocha, Guitar Innovation, New Album and More

On the new episode of Revolver's "Fan First" podcast, Tom Morello dives deep into his personal journey as a fan and a musician — from the albums that inspired him to first pick up guitar to the experience of working with two of the greatest vocalists of all time, Zack de la Rocha (in Rage Against the Machine) and Chris Cornell (in Audioslave). He also discusses how Soundgarden changed rock & roll, what was on the stereo in the RATM tour bus, how he invented a new guitar language, what flipped his hate of electronic music into love, and the dark story of his new The Atlas Underground Fire LP, out Friday, October 15th. You can listen to the podcast — hosted by The Void's Christina Rowatt — on Spotify and Apple Podcasts, or watch here.
