Bruce Springsteen was an unannounced guest at the annual “Light of Day” benefit show in Asbury Park over the weekend. He joined Joe Grushecky’s band for a long set of his own songs. Here’s a video of “Because the Night” , with a killer Bruce solo at the end. Whenever I hear a conversation about great rock and roll guitar players, he rarely gets mentioned. Watch this solo; raw, soulful and loud. One of the great rock guitarists, no matter what some best-of list might say….
Willie Nile and John Eddie on background vocals. They had played earlier in the night.
