Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine/Audioslave/Prophets of Rage broke his hand playing guitar during a show on Thursday. He then had surgery over the weekend and plans on being back on stage by today. He posted a mid-surgery photo on Instagram and…it’s intense.
I think it should be noted that this is his fret hand that be broke. That means he broke the hand that presses the strings down as opposed to the hand that strums the guitar. So, it’s not like he is going to take it easy on the appendage. No, this man is tough. He will say F-U to powerful politicians, write beat-box riffs for his magical guitar and, apparently, feels no pain. Ever.
This picture is intense…it shows the surgical wound spread open and the metal piece the placed in the hand for structural integrity. This IS a bloody photo…it IS intense…please to not click on the link if you are squeamish. For the rest of you freaks (like me) the photo can be found HERE
