Isn't Silvio in a coma...?

Oh.

Never mind.

Clarence Clemons really lost some weight.

I saw a few episodes of Lilyhammer. It was fun to watch for the first few. Easy to stop watching. They're really making more of that? Meh... There's a lot worse out there.

Morello played with Springsteen when he was here in Chicago last summer and even just hearing it, it was good.
 
2013-01-18 04:14:03 AM
I'm not even a big Rage Against the Machine fan, but Morello is a pretty great guitarist, the fail tag seems very unnecessary,.
 
2013-01-18 04:16:25 AM
Don't see how this is a bad thing. In fact I would say it is an upgrade.

/Would love to hear Bruce do 'Killing In The Name Of'
//Not going to happen
///They will do 'The Ghost Of Tom Joad' which will make up for it.
 
2013-01-18 04:42:50 AM
The only fail here is the tardmitter.

Got tickets for UK in Summer -as long as Nils is playing...

WhyteRaven74: Morello played with Springsteen when he was here in Chicago last summer and even just hearing it, it was good.


We were 5 rows from the stage literally center behind. It was one of the best concerts I went to. Glad we got to see them with Steven. I think we were the youngest in our section and I think our section was the diehard local fan club. Everyone knew each other. It was great and would see him again even if I had to be staring at his ass all night long (Mrs. Rikkards really enjoyed that).

nothing could make Bruce Springsteen and his crappy band any worse.
 
2013-01-18 06:24:16 AM
Morello could take a 2x4, 3 pieces of fishing line amd wood screws, make a guitar, and still sound better thatn Van Zandt. Submitter is pure farking fail.

For some reason I thought Stevie Van Zandt wa dead.

I don't get subby's Morello fail or the Van Zandt shiatslinging. Both are fine players.
 
2013-01-18 07:14:03 AM
So when's the big Free Mumia benefit show coming up?
 
2013-01-18 07:24:10 AM
Love Tom Morello and Bruce when they do "The Ghost of Tom Joad" together.
 
2013-01-18 07:34:12 AM
Rage Against Being Born in the USA?

/fits for both douchebags
 
2013-01-18 07:40:56 AM
Bruce and Tom are buddies. I think it's awesome to see them play together, I would be disappointed to go to a show and not see Stevie.
 
2013-01-18 07:53:29 AM
Put me in the 'Not seeing a problem here' crowd.
 
2013-01-18 08:03:38 AM
Whoa, it takes skill to play big, ringing open chords in front of an arena-sized crowd! Here's hoping he has had six-months worth of guitar lessons. Is any one else's palms sweaty? Mine are. The tension is killing me. I heard that Tom Morello doesn't use synthesizers AT ALL. It's ALL his guitar! Crazy!

You also can't download any of their guitar tab, because f*ck The Man and his guitar hobby.

I bet that tour bus is a real liberal juggernaut with those two on it
 
2013-01-18 08:49:42 AM
You mean to tell me that some professional musicians can play more than one style on their instrument? That boggles the mind... unless of course you know anything at all about music and its history.

You still bit. Derp!

I wasnt even trolling, I was trying to imagine what the conversations on the tour bus would be like with those two. But ya mention liberal in a post and it's a call to arms for you to defends yourselves. Lighten up already.

You're probably thinking of Gus Van Zant, except he's not dead either.

How about replacing Steveie Van Zandt with Townes Van Zandt?

As a result, every Springsteen song suddenly sounds exactly the same.

Err, there's lots of RAtM tabs out there.

Hopefully for the boss Morello will adapt better than he did with Dave Mathews, that sounded freakin awful.

Yes, we know Dave Mathews sounds freakin' awful, but how was Tom Morello?

Nope. Still not amusing in the slightest. Try again.

Is the fail Springsteen.

Seriously I don't get it, is it a regional thing.

Band on the run was ok but I don't like much else.

It's posts like this one that keep me coming back to Fark - and keep me terrified for our future.

Who's the latest backup singer Bruce is having an affair with?
 
2013-01-18 12:28:10 PM
I may not agree with 80% of what he stands for, but Morello seems like a pretty cool guy. His interview on The Nerdist was interesting.

Combining Birkenstocks with a buzzsaw isn't a pretty sound

Obama and Morello are both half Kenyan and went to Harvard....
