Hope this is new for you, did not find any link to it on the forum.  There‘s a short pic of Bruce in the video. #westernhero

Finally got to listen to it. Well. It's horrible, awful, an assault to the ears. Is this Steve's revenge for all the lost discussions on song selection for The River album?

He's can't possibly qualify as an angel on someone's chest.

I'm still not a big fan of this version, but I'm all for its existence because of this music video and the clips from all of those Western films that I really love.

In fact, until Bruce releases a video for his version with footage from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, A Fistful of Dollars, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, Dr Strangelove, Blazing Saddles, TombstoneOnce Upon a Time in the West, Unforgiven, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, The Searchers, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood etc., Stevie's effort is far superior. 

Oh, and that ending with Claudia Cardinale and The Searchers finale shot, 10 on 10, Steve. 10. ON. 10

I don't think it ever had a separate thread, but there is some discussion from around Page 15 of this thread.

Thanks, did not see that... And the vid did not get too much love there... I think it‘s quite fun to watch.

Feel free to delete my post as there‘s a link already in that other thread.

Steve loves those darn horns 

As do I! 

I truly love Bruce’s version and prefer it 100 times more, but I did like Stevie’s a lot!  Thanks for posting...

Hearing Steve sing always makes me happy

How voice is nowhere near as good as his guitar playing but that doesn't matter to me

May the day come again when he shears a mic with his Boss and we all get to smilie again 

Stay safe NJ

You are all in my prayers

God, I miss live music seeing this :( It makes me sad because it looks like so much fun, if that makes any sense?

side note, there was a nice interview with Steve in Forbes

Makes perfect sense to me.  I feel the same exact way...

Isn't that bit at 2:20 good? The blowing-up bit - well done.

Great listening to the band while watching those great clips. Love the band, Steve's singing ... great stuff!

And ... the lass is who he wants to be on the train - only she isn't ... hence the last clip.

:)

Whenever I listen to someone covering Bruce, I immediately have to listen to the original version, to reset my memory, and prevent unwanted earworms. :P

Interesting that he picked the one song from Western Stars that would fit seamlessly into an E-Street set (just play the main riff on guitars instead of a string section, and the song has all the elements found in other Springsteen anthems), and interesting that he chose to rearrange it, but it isn’t great. A valiant attempt though, and the video is very good. I haven’t listened to Western Stars for awhile though. I think I’ll give it a spin now.
