Perhaps they should have called this the Curve Ball tour. Tom Morello, filling in for Steven Van Zandt during the E Street Band's ongoing concerts through Australia, says Bruce Springsteen tinkers with the setlist until the absolute last moment.
This summer it was suggested that Bruce Springsteen may have to be without Steven Van Zandt for dates in 2013 due to the guitarist's previous acting commitments. Today, Springsteen announced that Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine will take over for Van Zandt when Springsteen tours Australia in March.
If Steven Van Zandt is forever best known as the guitarist for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, he’ll be perfectly fine with that. After all, the checks associated with that distinction are probably more than okay, right?
