Video Finds: Tom Morello Performs Acoustically with Ben Harper
In honor of his 50th birthday, here’s a clip of Tom Morello performing “Save The Hammer For The Man” along with Ben Harper on dobro and supporting vocals.
Released under Morello’s The Nightwatchmen alias, the track appears on his World Wide Rebel Songs album.
Harper also appears as a guest vocalist on the studio version.
With some tasty dobro work from Harper, those familiar with Morello's Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave days see a completely different side of his musicality in this Dylan-esque folk tune.
Morello allegedly spawned The Nightwatchman as a way to express political viewpoints, and has since performed at a number of protests and political events.
The guitar Morello is seen performing with in this video and most other Nightwatchmen performances is a Ibanez Galvador nylon-string acoustic that he dubbed "Whatever It Takes."
