Springsteen & Tom Morello - The Ghost Of Tom Joad

Rage Against The Machine have been known to cover TGOTJ in their own concerts in the past and of course the song was released by Bruce on his acoustic album of the same name.

Ever wondered what would happen if the two ever came together to play the song? Well here's a recording of it from last night at Springsteen's concert in Anaheim. Not many artists would allow a special guest take centre stage and it really paid dividends last night. Still probably prefer the acoustic version, it's one of my favourite Springsteen songs, but this was a great performance. A soundboard version is available to download in one of my posts On Tour: Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band Vol. 2.

I was at the show and wholly hell "Joad" was incredible. Immediately got out on the web today to find some video or audio of it!

Morello was Hendrix-esque. I also got a kick out of the go-go girls behind the stage (see http://springsteeninanaheim.wordpress.com/2008/04/09/the-go-go-girls/)
