Anyone who’s seen Tom Morello play with Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, Prophets of Rage, the Nightwatchmen and any of his other bands knows that he’s an, er, enthusiastic guitarist. #WeCantBeStopped #DjangoReinhardtLives #TheShowMustGoOn #TheBionicMan

Tom was back jamming with Prophets of Rage within days of the surgery, although he’s just playing with three fingers at the moment. Surgery today. We’re not sure how he did it, but Tom somehow managed to do some serious damage to his right hand–his playing hand, not what Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine calls “the moneymaker”–that required some hardcore repairs. Will be onstage in Sweden Tuesday. He also had a fan help him through Rage’s “Bulls on Parade” at a show in Sweden this week. Tom was fascinated enough by the procedure that he posted this on Instagram. Fractured my playing hand on Thursday. But sometimes, even a guitar god like Tom can overdo it.
Good God, Tom Morello! WHAT DID YOU DO TO YOUR HAND?
