Bruce Springsteen has turned his song "My City of Ruins" into a tribute song for his home state of New Jersey.

He played it last night in State College, Pennsylvania and offered thanks to the rescue workers. He performed it Wednesday in Rochester, New York.

He singled out New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for doing "such a hard job over the past few weeks." Jon Bon Jovi, meanwhile, was in London when the storm hit. He called off plans to return home yesterday.

Bon Jovi pushed for donations for victims of the storm and says, "We may not have electricity but we have power."
