During the interview he also played his guitar solo from Audioslave’s Like A Stone, a song he wrote for Chris Cornell called The Garden of Gethsemane, and jammed along with Ozzy’s Mr. Crowley.

For the next part of the show, Tom let the audience hear his new album in its entirety and gave a quick synopsis before every song about the featured guest how the songs DSCN6861came to be.

After that, the show concluded with Tom playing “The Ghost of Tom Joad” and inviting audience members on stage for a cover of “This Land is Your Land”, and concluded the show by playing “Killing in the Name” while The audience sang vocals. Check out the video below
