Tool’s famous guitarist, Adam Jones was the recent interview guest of Talk Is Jericho Podcast and revealed never-told-before truth about Rage Against The Machine icon, Tom Morello.

Adam Jones stated that Tom and he grew up together and Tom’s mother was Adam’s homeroom teacher.

Here is what Adam told to Talk Is Jericho:

“Tom and I grew up together. Tom’s mom was my homeroom teacher. Mary Morello, she’s the coolest lady you’d ever meet.

Maureen Herman, she’s in Babes in Toyland, she was a year younger than me and we were all friends at school, but Tom used to say, you know, ‘Grunge from Seattle, well, yeah, the next big sound is from Libertyville, Illinois.”

He continued:

“Tom was just very inspiring growing up. He was very animated and I always thought he would be an actor. He was very well-spoken. He was in a lot of plays.

I remember he was in this band and they were terrible. They were called the Electric Sheep. There were no concerns of being signed or how important it is. It was a high school band, and at some point, they needed a bass player, and I was playing the violin, but in high school, I started playing bass, cause they didn’t have a bass player. I can read treble and bass clef, but I always played guitar on the side. I’m self-taught.”
