Tom Morello Working on Solo Album: 'I Want to Make the Craziest Guitar Record Ever'
Extensive performing schedule with rock legend Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band has reportedly inspired guitar master Tom Morello to work on a solo album, and it's not just any effort we're talking about, but the "craziest guitar record ever."

Chatting with Billboard, Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave guitarist confirmed being "in the midst of making my first solo big rock record," remembering the specific moment of the Boss' tour when the inspiration struck. "It was on that [Anaheim] stage that I realized there might be a way to combine all the things I do as a songwriter and a guitar player, and this record is going to be that."

Revealing "a big batch of songs written," Morello added a few tidbits bound to excite every guitar fan. "I want to make the craziest guitar record that anyone's ever heard," he said. "The idea is that this is the Hendrix of now."

Describing the "spectacularly exciting" experience of performing with Springsteen, Tom shared a humble stance. "The E Street Band has a long, storied history," he explained. "I'm a big fan of the E Street Band, and when asked to play I consider it a great honor. As I've told Bruce, my principle concern is to do no harm. It's been one of the best live bands on the planet without me, so don't f--k it up is job one - and then, when called upon, to play my heart out."

As reported, Morello performed on a total of eight tracks on Springsteen's latest studio effort "High Hopes."
