Tom Morello Joining Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band for Australian Tour
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are about to put a little more rage in their sound. Come March, when the group tours Australia, ex-Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello will fill in for longtime member Steven Van Zandt, who's busy shooting the TV series 'Lilyhammer.'
According to Consequences of Sound, "Little Steven" will miss all nine of the Boss' upcoming Aussie gigs. He'll return in April, when Bruce heads to Europe, but in his absence, fans Down Under will get the rare chance to see Morello, aka the Nightwatchman, bring his signature guitar heroics to one of rock's most enduring groups.
A reputed Springsteen fan and fellow social-justice crusader, Morello has guested with the E Street Band throughout their latest tour, helping out with 'The Ghost of Tom Joad' and 'Death to My Hometown.' Perhaps Bruce will return the favor and arrange a sax-accented version of 'Bulls on Parade?'
