Tom Morello has retold his biography during a musical narrative with Audible.

The 56-year-old rocker has launched his Audible Original book ‘Tom Morello at Minetta Lane Theatre: Speaking Truth to Power Through Stories and Song’ to require fans on the musical journey of his life.

Telling his story through words and music, Morella explores his past, from his childhood to his career with Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave.

Explaining the inspiration, he told Collider: “There are a variety of projects that I have been involved in recently, from my MasterClass to a photo book of my life (‘Whatever It Takes’), and putting out a guitar with Fender, that are projects that are related, in some ways, more to my life than to specific songs.

“For years, I have been spinning campfire yarns, and a few friends and family who I worked with were like, ‘You should really put all of that together, as to how to inform your story.’ I’m very comfortable and assured ahead of an audience, talking and telling stories, then mixing that in with some shredding guitar, felt love it would be a fun thing to try to and how to attach with fans from different generations.”

The guitarist has been asked to show his story into a documentary – but he prefers to collaborate with Audible as he had more control over the narrative.

He explained: “There are countless offers to try to documentaries about countless bands that I have been in, but I liked this because I used to be ready to really shepherd the entire thing. If you hear it, there is a lot of stuff that’s fresh, that you simply didn’t know.

“It’s a uniquely American story, in a way, that has some very international elements thereto .”
