Tom Morello Declares Zack De La Rocha The ‘Greatest Frontman Of All-Time’


Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello has described his bandmate Zack de la Rocha as the greatest frontman of all-time.

“In my opinion, [Zack is] the greatest frontman of all time,” Morello said on Revolver‘s “Fan First” podcast. “He’s the punk rock James Brown. There’s no one in the history of Western music that has the sort of the totality of spiritual commitment onstage and in the studio as that guy.”

“And it’s matched with a brilliant intellect, and he’s a tremendous musician as well, and it’s really an unbelievable combination just, feel fortunate to be in a band with him,” he added.

Morello, who is best known for his unique and creative guitar playing style, and Rocha founded Rage Against the Machine together, going on to become one of the more popular and influential rock acts of the 1990s.

Morello also spoke highly of the late Chris Cornell, who was his bandmate in Audioslave.
