Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine played The Ghost of Tom Joad with Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band at a 2009 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame concert.
The show had a lot of great moments, and couple pretty poor ones (I’m looking at you U2… Seriously they are incapable of playing other people’s songs).
Tom & Bruce’s performance was incredible. The vocals are great, the band is always spot-on, and the both Bruce and Tom’s guitar solos are fierce and passionate.
Make sure you crank up the volume.
I’m still amazed that Morello’s style mixes so well with the E Street Band. I wouldn’t have thought to pair the two on stage together.
