Tom Morello to Guest on New Bruce Springsteen Album
As our colleagues at Spinner recently reported, Bruce ‘The Boss’ Springsteen will be releasing his 17th album ‘Wrecking Ball‘ March 6 via Columbia records. And to sweeten it up, the Jersey rock ‘n’ roll king has called upon Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello to lend of few choice solos.
According to The Pulse of the Radio (via Blabbermouth), Springsteen’s long-time manager Jon Landau has revealed that Morello will guest on the new record. The two have been friends for quite some time, sharing the stage back in 2008 to perform ‘The Ghost of Tom Joad.’
“We’ve been friends for about 10 years and I just ran into him at a recording studio a couple of days before the show, and he said, ‘We need to get you up onstage, Tommy!'” Morello tells The Pulse of the Radio of his onstage experience with the Boss.
“Like, I don’t get nervous for too much, I’ve, you know, I’ve rocked my share of arenas, but I was terrified [laughs]. But it went great. His crowd couldn’t have been more appreciative, and soloing over the rocking E STREET BAND while the Boss nods his approval is … those are a couple of nights that I’ll remember forever.”
Check out Springsteen’s newest single ‘We Take Care of Our Own’ below. We know that Morello isn’t a fan of Wall Street, but do you think he has a good chance of joining E Street?
