Muse’s Matt Bellamy Gifts Tom Morello a Custom Built Guitar

Muse’s Matt Bellamy has given special thanks to Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello for being a huge influence to him over the years.

Bellamy has described Morello as a “huge inspiration” and invited him to join Muse on their Simulation Theory world tour. As a way of saying thanks, the Muse frontman had a custom ax built for the guitar icon. The guitar is dark blue and has “Power To The People” engraved on the front.

Bellamy shared a photo of Morello with his new guitar on Instagram and wrote: “[Tom Morello] has been a huge inspiration to me growing up, a guitar legend. Proud to be able to give him a guitar I had made inspired by his playing and his message. Thanks for joining us on this UK tour, it’s been a blast! #powertothepeople.”
