Steven Van Zandt is a busy guy, what with this Underground Garage radio show, his channel on SiriusXM and his various bits of acting work (Have you seen Lillyhammer yet? It’s good!).
This means he won’t be able to join Bruce and the E-Street band on the next tour. This is only the second time since 1975 that Stevie won’t be around when Bruce makes the call.
So who did Bruce draft for the gig? Tom Morello.
This is actually a pretty predicatable choice given that Morello has played with the E-Street Band before and appeared on a couple of tracks on Springsteen’s Wrecking Ball album.
