Rage Against The Machine co-founder and guitarist Tom Morello is releasing an upcoming autobiography titled Whatever It Takes debuting this October via Genesis Publications. The “photo-memoir” is limited to just 2,000 copies, all hand-signed by Morello. It will cost $347 USD.

The book will include a mixed-media display of candid photographs, handwritten notes, set-lists from early concerts and detailed looks at Morello’s custom guitars. There will also be original commentary on his late-start to pursuing a life as a musician, the early formation of Rage Against The Machine and his activism initiatives.

“I dug deep into my garage and photo albums to find pictures that I hadn’t seen in many years,” Morello said. “Some of the photos show history in the making. Some are historically rocking. And some are historically embarrassing.”

“I’m both blessed and cursed to be a guitar player. I didn’t choose it, it chose me. The challenge was to find a way to weave my convictions into my music in a meaningful way,” Morello said of the limited-edition print offering.

A further limited edition “deluxe edition” will be available for $517 USD offered in a Solander box with chord charts of his Nightwatchman project, which will be titled Little Red Songbook. A 7” vinyl of his “Whatever It Takes” song and a live version of “Vigilante Nocturno” will be included. Stay tuned for a full release date and more updates.
