Covering Springsteen Right

Following up on my last post “The Gaslight Anthem and Cover Songs…”

Here’s Grace Potter and the Nocturnals (who are one of the best rock acts touring right now), giving a masters class in covering the Boss, and treating your audience with respect.

I can’t wait to see them perform with the Allman Brothers in September.

In other news, it seems that The Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon doesn’t mind doing a Bruce cover (or at least when it’s a high-profile on-stage collaboration with Rise Against, Wayne Kramer and Tom Morello). No hard feelings here. It’s a badass performance. Raw, passionate vocals, and screaming guitars.

Thanks to Mark for the tipping me on the Rise Against track.
