Net Worth: $60 Million
Guitarist Tom Morello, most famous for his guitar playing in the band Rage Against The Machine, has a net worth of $60 million. In addition to his net worth, he has achieved the recognition of his peers and fans as one of the greatest guitarists in music, famous for his distinctive playing style, which utilizes feedback and audio effects. In 1991, Morello began forming Rage Against The Machine, which would go on to become a recording phenomenon thanks to his blistering guitar work and the band’s proclivity for politically charged lyrics.

After Rage Against The Machine broke up, Morello joined the supergroup Audioslave along with Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell. Since his work with these two famous bands, Morello has worked on a variety of projects, including solo work. He’s also worked on film soundtracks, such as Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, and Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story. He has also found work as a comic book writer, writing the miniseries Orchid for Dark Horse Comics. He is also writing a song to accompany each issue of the series.
