Tom Morello Was a Stripper
Morello recently told NME that, after his Harvard graduation and move to Hollywood, he was unable to find a job and, going hungry, worked as an exotic dancer. "'Brick House' was my jam!," he said, adding, "All I can say is thank god it was in the time before YouTube!" He says he did bachelorette parties, but will only admit to stripping down to his boxers.
Known for his political involvement and utilizing his large fan bases to spread the good word, Morello feels that Street Sweeper has been the ultimate example in his band/fan engagement attempts. "Merely rocking to our jams is a ticket for admittance," he also told NME. "Throughout my work, I've tried to engender the idea of 'We're in this together' and these albums or concerts are not some kind of tutorial on globalization."
