Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave and Prophet of Rage guitarist Tom Morello has shared an emotional story about how he wrote his solo track “Stray Bullets”.

He said that he wrote that track for a soldier paralyzed in the Iraq War. Here’s the statement:

“Stray Bullets” is a song I wrote with Ryan Harvey for our friend Tomas Young. Tomas was a soldier paralyzed in the Iraq War, became a staunch anti-war activist with Iraq Veterans Against The War, and was a great dude.

Always emotional playing in his hometown of Kansas City so I strummed this last night before my show thinking of him.”
