He renovated it and converted it to exclusive use as a 5,capacity music venue. At the end ofWinterland Ballroom closed down. Graham explained to Billboard that spiraling costs in operating the facility, which is used only sporadically, along with continuing pressure from various Fillmore District neighborhood organizations, are the reasons for the closing.
To commemorate the final days of use of Winterland Ballroom, Gragam booked shows nearly every night in December There is plenty of video footage of other artists at the venue from around the same period, but the most likely scenario is that any film of those two night was lost in a fire at Bill Graham's San Francisco warehouse offices in It is possible that a copy may still reside in Springsteen's vaults.
Home recordings of the show were taped off the airways and have since circulated among fans. A fan who was present at the show recalls with a certain degree of certainty that when the show was over and the stage was cleared, Springsteen and the band returned some minutes later to perform one more song, TWIST AND SHOUT, for those who remained. However, it's unlikely that the song was Backstreets - Bruce Springsteen - Roulette (Vinyl on this night based on the available recordings and the lack of any supporting evidence.

We were so blown away by Mikes extensive Bruce library, his passion for Bruce's music and Mike's first hand technical knowledge of bruce's touring machine, that we asked him to be a regular guest blogger on Bruceintheusa.
Mike has so much knowledge and love for this great music, we just had to get the word out. Mike's Radio show is amazing. He picks wonderful gems from Bruce's first gigs to the present. This is a must for the "Die Hard" Springsteen Fan.
Mike shares his vast knowledge and library of Springsteen music Weekly on his own internet radio show "Rare Springsteen". Here is a link to his site for showtimes. Backstreets has only been played occasionally on the legs of the Wrecking Ball tour. Indeed it did, becoming one of Springsteen's best, most moving music videos, despite the fact that, as Rudolph explained, "Bruce was somewhat conflicted that the non-singing members of the band were not represented.
We still can hear Garry's bass and Max's percussion even if we can't see them, and we know that everyone on camera also represents in spirit all members of the legendary E Street Band, both seen and unseen. September 25, - two-page spread from now-defunct DoubleTake Magazine's Spring issue. And finally, when the September 25 show actually began with its jaw-dropping opening of "Incident on 57th Street," performed for the first time in almost two decades, there was one very special audience-member who was especially moved by that moment: legendary Philly DJ and longtime Springsteen supporter Ed Sciaky.
I do remember Ed crying when he heard the first notes of 'Incident' that night. Over episodes broadcast fromDylan delved into a different subject each week, collecting and presenting music arranged and inspired by a particular topic, from Weather to Fruit. Despite some parallels, each of the first six episodes of Bruce's radio show were doing something else — responding directly to facets of the moment, to the times we're living through; Episode 7, with a special gathering of friends, explored a hyperspecific genre of music they made together.
Only with Episode 8 do we get a wall-to-wall Theme Time hour and three-quarters of radio from Springsteen, with a deep dive into the subject of Summertime. It's a look back at hot nights and cool water, boardwalks and summer romances and catching rides to the outskirts — and a very personal one. Our host doesn't pretend shit isn't what it is right now —. And how is your summer going, this summer unlike any other?
The beaches are open here at the Shore, may God save us all, so let's carry on into the breach. Along the way you'll find seeds of songs like "Working on the Highway" and "No Surrender" and more. I loved and love summer.
As a child I became summer. I melted into the hot tarmac, I rolled myself into a sand ball at the beach. I slid beneath the murky water, ducking summer dragonflies at the Freehold pond. I sat in the tops of trees, feeling the summer breeze prickle over my freshly cut Saturday-afternoon flat-top. I'd stand with my bike 'neath the August sun by the roadside, watching the locals on the road crew lay down the steaming blacktop, that beneath their rakes and shovels and heavy equipment curled and flattened like hot licorice.
And when the big men and the machinery moved away, I waited, and I wanted my wheels to be the first to touch that steaming, virgin roadway. In the evening twilight, I sat glued to the curb with a Pinky rubber ball in my hand, waiting for my best friend Bobby Duncan to finish his dinner so we could engage in epic gutterball tournaments into the night.
And then later with scissors we'd poke holes into the lids of glass mason jars and invade the vacant lot across from my grandmother's front porch to capture our nightly quota of the evening's fireflies, just to leave them twinkling til dawn on our night tables, LP). May they rest in peace. We'd play Home Free, running from pool of light to pool of light from our neighborhood street lamps, until we were called in, as the neighborhood's porch lights went dark, by my grandmother's voice.
And there, my sister and I would sleep on opposite sides of the bed, wrapped between hot, sticky sheets, on pre-air-conditioning, humid, Jersey summer nights. There were evenings that, if it got hot enough, my Dad showed mercy on us, and he'd pack us into the Olds and set off in the darkness on Route 33 for the mile ride to Manasquan, where on those nights the heat and the humidity of inland Freehold became too much to bear.
We'd sleep in our pajamas, our bed blankets stretched out on the cool sand, enjoying the ocean air LP) the Manasquan Inlet. Then at early light, like magic, we'd be carried back into the house, into our bedrooms, sandy-haired from our beach sleep, and I'd watch the sun splash its morning gold over the western wall of my room. And soon I'd smell my mother's coffee drifting up through the floor grate that opened to my room. I'd lie awake and listen to my parents leave for work.
Then I'd dress, skip breakfast, walk out onto our side porch where the bare bones of the sun's rays cut through the green latticework and warmed the wooden steps of our porch. There I'd sit, barely human, a creature of the earth, and the rain, and the sun, and summer. Already, it's some of his loveliest writing. A couple of novelty songs up top evoke the era, a reflection of the pop sounds his ears were soaking in as a kid, and the sounds of particular summers for young Bruce. The Jamies record that gives this episode its name, "Summertime Summertime," as Springsteen recalls, "was a hit twice: inwhen I was eight years old, and again in when I was It was a basic novelty song, but it always signaled the beginning of summer for me in its baroque joy.
As Episode 8 goes along, we gather that the theme is less Summertime in general than Bruce's own Summer memories and associations, a highly personal recollection of the season. As a teenager, I would stay up all night — as a crucible to pass for three or four nights of the summer, as the house sank into a midsummer-evening silence.
I'd be camping out in my room. I would take or a. At night and only at night was I king of the streets of Freehold, New Jersey, unhassled by the day's rednecks.
Any time they'd see some longhair pass the barbershop they'd come running out, shaving cream half on their face: "Hey! Are you a girl? That was bullshit I didn't need in those days. So in the middle of the evening, I'd return home — a. The writing continues to be so evocative, you can easily imagine these passages as outtakes from his Born to Run memoir — is there an extended Director's Cut we might read someday? After injecting his own summer song into the mix, the "hot sun beating on the blacktop" in "Sherry Darling," Bruce gets back to his youth.
In my bed, in the summer I'd be reading all my old copies of Surfer magazine. Did I surf? But the magazine held two very essential elements, surf or not. I was deeply interested in the perfectly tanned surfer girls in bikinis, and in the advertisements for Fender guitars. There they were, in the fresh ads, the true objects of my desire: three white Fenders — a bass, a Stratocaster, and a Jaguar, each as white as the Hawaiian sand, lined up next to one another, each more desirable than the next… but taken as a group?
My god. The perfect trifecta. Now, I spent relatively short quality time with the pictures of the surfer girls. But I spent hours in my bunk, in my room, salivating over those guitars. I'd drift off to sleep with the magazine open on my chest, and then riding the summer breeze from the west came slipping through my open bedroom window, a sound I swear that was coming from some perfect beach thousands of miles away…. Those sounds, of course, the strains of the Beach Boys' "California Girls.
It lets you know just how long a summer can feel if you've ever spent one in Heartbreak City. I'd cheated on a fabulous girlfriend I'd had, with one of my exes. One of the dumbest things I'd ever done, and I immediately had buyer's remorse.
That summer — the summer of '67, the summer of Sgt. Pepper — I chased my girl from beach town to beach town to beach town. Thank god I was aided by a big ol' '60s ragtop black Cadillac, and a car of good friends. My running pack, Jay, Sunrise, Bird — you guys saved my life that summer. I don't know where you are now, but I've never forgotten you and the solid that you did me in the summer of ' This is a singer and a song That reminds me of the hot, humid, sultry summer nights And the girls that went with them.
Nights so hot and still Fields of fireflies Leaves so still on neighborhood trees That they did not whisper No rumor of a breeze In sight. You'd sit on your porch You were dressed Waiting either for her Or the end of the world.
Soon enough Bruce was taking us there too, putting together a killer suite of his own tales of hot summertime fun, the musical heart of Episode 8: "4th of July, Asbury Park Sandy ," "County Fair," and "Backstreets. Now, I can testify to this firsthand, because I spent a summer tarring — in 95 degree heat — Mrs. Ladd's, my neighbor's, roof for 50 cents an hour! As a young teenager. And it was hell on Earth. It sent me running to the beach, and under the boardwalk to wash the sticky tar off me and take a break, underneath Convention Hall and the Casino.
This song was a real perfectly drawn beauty. Every line is beautifully crafted, and the change to minor in the chorus was something musically unique. Now this was made a hit in the definitive version by The Drifters, but today I chose the Stones' somewhat punkier version. Of Springsteen's brilliant pairings and juxtapositions in his From His Home to Yours series, few have been so perfect as segueing from "Under the Boardwalk" right into "Sandy," his own tale of boardwalk life.
But rather than the start of a one-two punch, "Under the Boardwalk" would really prove to be a prologue for this majestic trio of Bruce's own summertime songs that followed. With those oh-so-sweet accordion strains from Danny Federici, the tilt-a-whirl and carnival life of "Sandy" gives way to the roller coaster and merry-go-round of "County Fair.
A studio outtake from — of which there are many more, and one of these days all of this work I did between Nebraska and The River [sic] will show up magically. I had my '60 Vette, from the cover of Born to Run, and I would take my girl to the Monmouth County Fair — which was a lot of fun, but a funkier proposition in those days.
A lot of 4H farm animals… and there was a car you could bust up with a sledgehammer, for two bucks… oh, the simple joys… a dunk tank. After the fair, we'd ride back to the farm, the roof down, we'd sit out in front of the big ol' white farmhouse, lean back, listen to the music down below, just talk and look up at the stars.
And then it's "Backstreets" for the trifecta, illuminated by more visions of his youth as he vividly describes a summer day in worn-out Converses, towel in tow, hitchhiking to Manasaquan and dodging beach cops. Backgrounding Western Stars' "Hitch Hikin'" too, this magnificent "Backstreets" prelude paints a picture of what a "soft infested summer" might have looked like:.
As a teenager, my bedroom window faced south when we lived on 68 South Street. So I got light but not much sun in the morning. I had just finished — and barely survived — summer school.
Had Mr. De Tomaso, along with my Italian cousin Alfonse, Mr. De Tomaso's assistant. And he was a Spanish whiz. With Alfonse's sly assistance, I passed. Well now all I know is, the rest of this summer is mine: my mornings, my afternoons, my evenings belong to me. So I make my way down to the silent morning kitchen, last night's dinner plates shiny in their drying holders compliments of no one, of course, but my mom.
There's a five-dollar bill on the table, next to a box of Corn Chex and a bowl. It's her daily summer greeting to me. But the five is gonna have to last me all week. And the house is mine for a moment: my pop at work or, having bailed, still in bed sleepingmy sister's still in bed, the house is mine. And I love the quiet. I love the quiet of the house in the morning. So I have a quick bowl of cereal, and I scoop up the five, and I'm out the door, striding down South Street towards Route I carry nothing but a folded beach towel under my arm.
I make sure not to stick my thumb out until I reach 33, as that would bad-voodoo and jinx my chance of a quick ride east. At the stoplight, I settle into formation at the intersection. Highway 33 and Shore Points. Where they meet, I take my hitchhiker's stance: one hip slung low, the knees slightly bent, thumb out, an air of nonchalance, like I could give a shit if you gave me a ride or not.
I take the occasional few steps backward toward my destination — the beaches and bikinis of Manasquan, New Jersey — and I wait for the magic to begin. Now, I'm confident that shortly a bored trucker, nascent hot-rodder, traveling businessman, or a concerned mom will pick me up. I'll hear car wheels squeal on gravel, and the passenger side door will open and soon make that beautiful slamming sound of victory in the morning.
Small talk will ensue, which you must be good at, and then an hour and three or four rides later, I will be deposited at Manasquan main beach.
I will dodge the badge-counters, though it is un-American — in New Jersey we must pay to go to the beach! I do not, however, plan to have my arcade or lunch money eaten up by stinkin' beach badges.
So I head for a plot of sand, I scan thoroughly for the beach cops and the nearest crowd of pretty girls, and I settle in. After a few moments in the sun, I head for my morning baptismal in the wonderful, God-given Atlantic Ocean.
Summer's on. And it's hard to think of a better prelude to Roy Bittan's opening notes of "Backstreets. Though Bruce himself has notoriously steered clear of recreational drugs, he cues up Victoria Williams' "Summer of Drugs" to recall how they led to the end of his first band:.
In Freehold, there were no visible drugs to be seen. The high school principal was still concerned with you hiding out behind the gym swigging beer. But that started in to change aroundand one evening there was the first drug bust that had ever occurred, in history, as far as we knew, in Freehold, NJ.
And: bass player for The Castiles? Organ player for The Castiles? Drummer for The Castiles? All ripped out of mamas' and daddies' arms at 3am. Bruce Nelson says, "I just saw Mrs. Bots go by in the cop car with baby Bots! Bots" was [Castiles drummer] Vinnie "Skeebots" Manniello's better half. I said, "Get outta here! He said, "She was in the cop car with the baby Bots, on the way to the police station!
I said, "Nobody gets arrested with their baby! But sure enough, the Bots family went down to the police station, victim of the new Freehold Borough war on drugs. So that spelled the final chapter in my first band, the fabulous Castiles. As the episode nears its close, Springsteen looks back at the summertime pleasures of drive-in movies and skinny dipping, offering a recollection and endorsement of "nightswimming" that's just as lovely as the R.
There is nothing like the sea at night. When the water is slightly warmer than the air, even though the air is humid after a degree day. God, I love swimming at night.
It is all darkness and mystery. It is the void. And it must be done naked. Clothes at the waterline, please. Do this, and my pilgrim, you will become cleansed. Never will the evening air, or a kiss on the beach, or a dry towel ever feel so good again. The walk to the car will be filled with starlit grace, and you will never forget it. And once you hit the water, you will be covered in the blossoming beauty of your youth, no matter how old you are. And whoever you're with, you will always remember them.
Springsteen wraps with a modern masterstroke from an old friend, the title track from Little Steven's latest Summer of Sorcery evoking Van Morrison's "And the Healing Has Begun" and capturing up the romance, transformative power, and "unlimited possibility" of summer as well as you could ask of a record. And from there it's "Until we meet again, stay strong, stay smart, stay safe, stay healthy, mask up… and go in peace" as the DJ drifts away beyond the sea until next time.
The six albums were also made available at the time as digital downloads, with the rarities divided up as bonus tracks with each album and on several stand-alone EPs. In February and March this year, the six vinyl albums were released individually on gram standard black or limited-edition color swirl vinyl, matching those in the box. The CD box set will contain all of the material from last year's vinyl version, plus some additional exclusive DVD content. As with the vinyl box, the CD version is available exclusively through udiscovermusic.
Each Little Steven album is also being broken out of the box to be available individually on compact disc. Little Steven's appearances took place at the Grugahalle in Essen on October 16, — only his second gig with the original Disciples of Soul — and at the open-air Loreley Festival on August 25, It was a blast revisiting these shows, and I'm thrilled they are now being released for all to enjoy.
We happened to have a particularly good show that night. That show with that band was my rock peak. The first to be released was "Trail of Broken Treaties" from the Ritz concert, a song that "refers specifically to the 'Trail of Tears' forced relocation of thousands of Native Americans, and symbolically to the hundreds of broken treaties with Native America. Currently there are no plans for standalone releases of the DVDs, or of the four rarities CDs from the box set. Each episode will virtually visit a different city, featuring "special musical and celebrity guests and education heroes" from each location.
The first "stop" of the series is Cleveland, Ohio. The series premiere will stream live from pm ET this Thursday, July Normally the band visits their ancestral home, The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, but in these days of social distancing they had to trade sand between the toes for the staggered parking spaces of nearby Monmouth Park in Oceanport. Springsteen on Sunday host Tom Cunningham with the When the band took the stage to "Better Days," those above lyrics rang loud and true.
Always a band to be reckoned with, Southside and the Jukes showed that they still had something to prove at this drive-in "concert experience," billed as the "first of its kind" in New Jersey.
They quickly shook off any cobwebs that may have gathered in their pandemic-forced performance hiatus, and the crowd showed their appreciation right back — fans dancing in cars and on cars. This the first time that the Jukes had a 1, piece horn section: three on stage, and the rest in vehicles packed in for the show.
Those horns honked for sure — not always in key or on the beat, but with an exuberance that we've all come to expect from a Southside show. Johnny assumed his usual conductor stance with this expanded horn section, and the results were… um, mixed… proving that liking good music does't necessarily guarantee you have rhythm.
Already behind the wheel or not, I still don't think anyone in attendance would disagree with the sentiment of "I Don't Want to Go Home" as the end of the show came Backstreets - Bruce Springsteen - Roulette (Vinyl. Live concerts are such a vital part of life to so many, and we all have had a hole where that live show vibe used to be. My hat's off to Basie Presents, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, all the production and security staff, and the audience for following the social distancing rules, so shows like this can still happen until things get back to normal… whenever that is.
At the end of the evening it was a Jukes party at the Jersey Shore with most of the usual happenings that go with it — including that couple in the back doing the Dirty Jersey in their car.
Yep, it was an official Jersey Shore Jukes party! In addition to broadcasting the concert live, the station will also be hosting an on-air "pregame" show from the concert site beginning at 4 pm. Also, it's not summer at the Shore until Southside and the Jukes play! In a summer of few concerts and limited access, we're bringing the show to our listeners. Listen live from anywhere in the world on all sorts of devices.
The civil unrest of July — before, during, and after — is at the heart of the documentary feature, Asbury Park: Riot, Redemption, Rock n' Rollwhich also explores music's ongoing importance to the community and its recovery. A once storied seaside resort, Asbury Park erupted in flames during a summer of civil unrest, crippling the town and reducing it to a state of urban blight.
Shuttered for four and a half decades, the Upstage remains a perfect time capsule of the Club, which united both sides of the tracks in Asbury and acted as a crucible for young talent. Now, as Asbury Park enjoys its long awaited renaissance, it is music, which has helped its return.
It provides a fascinating context for both the history that happened before us, and what was going on in real time as we worked around the clock learning our craft and finding our identities. As Jones and Phillips discussed, a primary goal of the director has been to raise funds for music education programs, in Asbury Park and farther afield. If you enjoy the free stream, we encourage you to check out and support such organizations as the Asbury Park Music Foundation and the Lakehouse Music Academy.
The Turf Club It's working to restore the Turf Club, the last standing music venue on Springwood Avenue. The idea is to bring it back as a "community music and cultural venue. The cinderblock Turf Club, empty sinceis a symbol of the "other" Asbury Park. People tend to talk about the city's Methodist heritage and its "shore" music: Springsteen, Southside, Little Steven. To restore the Turf Club is to honor a history that's too often neglected, to expand and correct the very definition of Asbury Park.
That history's complicated. Springwood Avenue's "Little Harlem" included tough characters, black and white, as well as fine music. Here's a brief, nowhere-near-complete look at the Turf Club. That September, they transferred the license to John W. Moore, who effectively took over.
While there may have been live music at the bar during this early period, there doesn't appear to be any record of it. Seven years later, in earlyMoore tried to transfer his license to an entity called Turf Club Bar, Inc.
City council twice denied the transfer, and their ruling was upheld by the State Commissioner of Alcoholic Beverage Control. The grounds for the denial were that the proposed new owners "had some connection with operators of other taverns in the city and that these places were operated in an objectionable manner.
In response, Moore argued that in the eight years he'd owned the bar, there had been no complaints or violations against him. A article in Beverage Retail Weekly criticized the denial, claiming that the council "consistently approves transfers" and in blocking this one was "playing politics. It was owned by his brother, Phillip Konvitz, who also had an interest in the Palace bar on Springwood.
Phil Konvitz has been described as a man who "influenced most of the things that took place in Asbury Park…. After an FBI probe inthe influencer was indicted on federal bribery and extortion charges. Then Karp proposed moving the operation down the street to Springwood.
He'd tear down the old Victory Hotel that stood there and create a new venue. A petition signed by about a hundred Springwood residents objected.
They claimed the move would result in three bars and three package stores within about feet of one and other, which school children would have to pass by on their way to school.
Karp countered that the proposed move was only a block away, and school children already passed by the current Turf Club. Inthe city council approved the transfer, contingent on the new building being completed. With the new structure came a new emphasis on music. Jacquet was famous for his work with the Lionel Hampton band, including his sax solo on "Flying Home. Who made up the audience? Big Bill's, anyway, "had about 85 percent white clientele.
Leo's Turf Club drew listeners from as far away as Philadelphia and Newark. It also drew its share of trouble. There was the stabbing of a police officer in the fall ofa throat slashing in One patron, refused entrance, punctured the tires on Leo Karp's car.
Wakie's continued to bring in music — singer Irene Reid, who'd been a vocalist with Count Basie, and a local band called King Solomon and the What Five — but six months after Wakie's opened, Asbury's West Side burned in an act of frustration and rebellion.
The "misery [and] depression" had become too much. In the July 7, edition of the Asbury Park Pressthere's a photo of a man directing firefighters from the roof of Wakie's Show Place. It was one of the few structures that didn't burn to the ground. Goldstone was appointed chairman of the business development committee of Asbury's West Side Coalition, but business didn't come back. It complained that Asbury's police had stopped patrolling the West Side altogether.
All around the former Turf Club, Springwood Avenue was in ruins — and would mostly remain so for the next 50 years. As the condominiums on Asbury's beachfront capitalize on the city's musical heritage, the Turf Club sits vacant. You can help change that. For more info, go to www. You'll find a place to donate there, too. Online shop fixed! As initially performed in Portland, Oregon on October 25, and continuing through many shows on the River Tour, Roy Bittan would play a brief solo-piano portion of Morricone's beautiful, haunting main-title theme, aka "Jill's Theme," from Sergio Leone's classic film Once Upon a Time in the West.
Whenever and wherever it would happen, it always served as the perfect lead-in for what would follow: a heart-quickening, full-band performance of one of Springsteen's own greatest compositions.
Just in terms of how they sounded, "Jill's Theme" and "Badlands" couldn't be more different from one another, but emotionally — where it really mattered — you could feel in your very soul just how perfectly these two compositions connected. So far two of them both from the Nassau Coliseum stand in late have been released officially through Springsteen's ongoing live Archive Series at live.
As described by Dave Marsh in his book Glory Days: Bruce Springsteen in the s"The crowd sang along to [Morricone's] spectral melody, making a beautiful, haunting sound that no one could have predicted, upsetting and enriching the spectacle of the show. It turned out that the Once Upon a Time in the West theme had been a jukebox hit in northern Italy, where about a third of the crowd came from.
In the ensuing quarter-century or so, Springsteen's only other interpolation of Morricone's music occurred on Halloween nightoddly enough.
Morricone was in the audience that night, as reported by Massimo Benvegnu in Backstreets issue 53 : "He was visibly having a good time, clapping along to 'This Hard Land,' which was introduced as a song about, among other things, 'every Western movie I ever saw. Another longtime Backstreets contributor, Ermanno Labianca, was backstage with Morricone and his wife Maria when they met with Springsteen after the show, and he reported on it in Backstreets issue 56 : "Bruce said how delighted he was by that visit.
He stopped and opened a little door so the music from the hall could come in. While the notes of 'Finale' a reprise of 'Jill's Theme' from Once Upon a Time in the West vanished under the roaring of the audience asking for more 'Broooce,' Bruce and Morricone posed for a couple of pictures.
Eventually this included some shows that featured "Badlands" as the set-opener, effectively reuniting "Jill's Theme" with "Badlands. And of course, "Jill's Theme" served as the perfect aural backdrop for that powerful "Our love is real" moment on June 3, at Stadio San Siro in Milan, Italy [below]. In the summer ofSpringsteen recorded an electric-guitar-driven version of "Jill's Theme" for the tribute album We All Love Ennio Morriconewith orchestral backing from Unione Musicisti di Roma, Morricone's longtime collaborators.
One year later, Springsteen would again be paying tribute to Morricone, but this time by recording and releasing an original composition, "Outlaw Pete" on Springsteen's album Working on a Dream.
In many ways, this was Bruce's fullest personal salute to the essential element that made Morricone's film music such a breakthrough: his successful fusion of rock-band dynamics and instrumentation with epic orchestral and choral landscapes. In Springsteen's own epic composition, "Outlaw Pete" achieved a similarly successful fusion that included along the way a specific nod to Backstreets - Bruce Springsteen - Roulette (Vinyl "Man With a Harmonica" from Once Upon a Time in the West.
Live performances of the song often featured Bruce adding a bit of Morricone's "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Main Title " on electric guitar, too, as he did in his June 27, Glastonbury Festival performance [below]. Bruce Springsteen isn't the only person on E Street with such a strong understanding and appreciation of Ennio Morricone, either.
Upon learning of the sad news, Stevie Van Zandt tweeted that Morricone was "one of the greatest composers of all time. Finally, Ennio Morricone also had a keen understanding and appreciation of Bruce Springsteen.
Morricone jumped at the chance, writing:. In his songs, Springsteen creates a strong sense of pietas — of the pain and humanity inherent in the characters he recounts. He does this not only through his music, where he uses different timbres and sounds to endow characters with a unique personality, but also through his lyrics, which are where his real power lies….
Although they are very different, a certain part of my work and his shares a common basis in the simple chords we use to create structured and original melodies. I like Springsteen precisely because he places this need for Truth in the forefront. This is how he manages to elude passing fads and why his music runs no risk of being lost over the course of time.
