Rage Against Springsteen

Tom Morello made a surprise appearance mid-set during Monday night's (4/7) Bruce Springsteen concert in Anaheim, CA.

Morello, who in the past recorded and performed a noteworthy cover of Springsteen's "Ghost of Tom Joad" with his band Rage Against The Machine, helped Springsteen and the E Street Band reinvent the song as a full-blown rocker.

Morello's extended guitar solo on the song built to a stunning climax with sonic pyrotechnics that should add to bootleg interest in the show.

Having seen Tom Morello perform as The Nightwatchman, it is easy to see that he was heavily influenced by the songwriting and performing Bruce Springsteen. I loved reading today that Tom was able to show off his skills in this setting in front of a crowd that probably had never heard of him. Fortunately the video appeared on YouTube and we can all see it for ourselves.
