The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's most glaring omission

GREETINGS FROM TRENTON, NJ Riding on a wet night into the homestretch, the penultimate night of the tour was a powerful show with a powerful opener. Springsteen emerged with his electric guitar and said, "This is for Link Wray""; news of the guitar great's death earlier this month has just come out in recent days. Bruce went into a blistering, foot-stomping version of "Rumble," Wray's 1958 classic and one of the great rock instrumentals of all time. Ending the song, Bruce left the guitar shrieking with feedback on its stand as he transitioned over to the bullet mic "Born in the U.S.A."
