Bruce Springsteen: Talk To Me

I’ve heard that song thousands of times, seen it on stage like 100s more and was sure, that no other band can do more justice to it, than Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes… But now, I think that there are some serious competitors rising their voices & saxophones… Bruce wrote the piece almost 4 decades ago, and the Kingfish did play it like 2936 times before this night, last week in Tampa, Florida… So – no real surprise, how well they did play it! Well they did indeed! And: What a surprise! Phenomenal!

One thought on “Bruce Springsteen: Talk To Me

  1. That’s magic! The band looks like they really love playing it, and they pull it off wonderfully. Eddie especially seems to know his part quite well 😉

    Hopefully as the tour continues Bruce will choose to play more of these gems from “The Promise”.

    I’ve been checking out the various video clips on YouTube and elsewhere from the shows so far (although this is the first time I’ve seen this one, thanks Klaus!!) and they all leave me grinning from ear to ear. The clips of Thundercrack, Kitty’s Back, Bruce dancing with his mom (She’s almost 90!), Bruce walking deep into the audience to collapse into someone’s seat and then completely finish off a beer someone hands to him (a Stauder perhaps?) before finishing the song…and many more musical moments of brilliance from old songs to new which reveal Bruce and the band are still at the top of their game.

    Klaus and Gundi I’m sure May can’t get here fast enough for you!

    Prost! – John
