Tom MorelloRocker Tom Morello's great uncle was Kenya's first President, Jomo Kenyatta. The Rage Against the Machine star grew up with a photo of the leader hanging on his parents' wall at home - and it left him thinking every kid had a big name in the family.

He tells Spin magazine, "I just thought everyone had a Kenyan independence leader in their family."

Morello still owns the photo and he has also picked up an authentic Maasai tribe fly swatter, just like the one Kenyatta was always pictured with.

He jokes, "I like to wield my authority with it."
