Tom Morello Gifts 10-Year-Old Musician His Signature Guitar After Viral RATM Cover
Like the rest of the internet, Tom Morello was wowed earlier in the month when 10-year-old musician Nandi Bushell covered Rage Against The Machine’s classic Guerilla Radio. And not only did the riff-master praise her on social media at the time – he’s now gifted the young star with one of his signature Soul Power Fender Stratocaster guitars.
In a heartwarming reaction video posted on Nandi’s YouTube, Tom films a message for her explaining, “Hey Nandi, I’d like you to have this guitar as a gift from me to you because you rock so great, and to see someone rocking so great who is so young, it really gives me hope for the future.”

Unsurprisingly, Nandi is absolutely thrilled with her present, not only reacting so happily in the video, but also writing in the description, “Dear Tom Morello, thank you so so so much! I can’t believe this is real and you actually sent me a message and your signature guitar, it is so beautiful! AMAZING!”
Nandi adds: “I hope we get to jam one day! Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow!!!!! Thank you so much for supporting me on my musical journey. With love and respect Nandi.”
