The only other tidbit he gave is a tantalizing one. Tom Morello filled in for guitarist Steven Van Zandt when Brooooce and the & the E Street Band recorded some material in-between live shows. The RATM guitarist took Little Steven's place when his filming schedule for a TV series called Lilyhammer prevented him from joining the tour.

After admitting he and his classic outfit "struggled through the '90s," Springsteen opined they've been enjoying their most satisfying period ever.
