Greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world

And that's what they were in '75, too. This is the vintage of the E Street Band I remember: the Born to Run tour. At the time, they were the coolest bunch of white boys (pimped-out and all) I'd ever seen, and I wanted to be Clarence Clemons. Beautiful sound on this Hammersmith Odeon show too; probably a radio broadcast.

This is one of my favorite Boss songs, if only for the pure-D rock 'n' roll joy it embodies. Best moment: the impeccable stop-time around 5:58 where Bruce yells: "Bring it home!

Greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world in '75; still are.

They're still standing. So am I.

RIP Danny.
