"Don't try to stump the E Street Band, Baby"


Recommended Posts

So Bruce is feeling pretty confident, hell, cocky, these days about the ESB's ability to play just about any song the audience can throw at him.

Hmmm, sounds like a challenge to me. What song would you throw at the band? It should be one that Bruce has at least some sort of history with but, ideally, the more obscure the better.

My choice is a track he played when he was a guest DJ on E Street Radio. He claimed to have listened to this song over and over in his bedroom late at night in New Jersey back in his youth. So he could probably fake it pretty well. But does the rest of the band know...

The Court of the Crimson King by King Crimson?


BTW, I understand that many of us, maybe most of us, wouldn't necessarily want to hear an ESB version of this song, but that's not what we're after here. We want to STUMP THE BAND!

Clarence would have been great on the "Come on barbie, let's go party"

if it's the same song CK is referring to, heinous song but I can see it. he's got the voice for it.

Life itself
Queen of the supermarket
What love can do
Good eye
Tomorrow never knows
You'll be coming down
Your own worst enemy
Gypsy Biker
I'll work for your love
Last to die
Devil's arcade
How can a poor man stand such times and live
Jesse James
All the way home
Devils and Dust
Long time coming
Maria's bed
Worlds apart
Further on up the road
The fuse



Do you think they'd be stumped?

Agreed - I'll settle for Queen of the Supermarket. Cue lots of raised eyebrows and "WTF"'s from the band.

He can play that instead of Lonesome day. Nobody likes that anyway, right? tongue.gif


It's an okay song..... But I could do without it in the shows I will see. wink.gif

I tried for "Friday On My Mind" by the Easybeats in Nashville last year.

I had a sign that said "Friday on my Mind" with Easy veritcally on one side, and Beats on the other with a few Australian flags on it. Bruce had a good look at it during Out In The Street and had a bit of a laugh, but the bastard did try it.

I chose it because:

1. It shows that there are people who've travelled from Australia at the front of the pit.
2. He tried ripping the song off and in turn it inspired Out In The Street.
3. The band soundchecked it before the Melbourne show on The Rising tour.
4. I was having a crack at getting a world premiere played.

For Glasgow only, it has to be " Loch Lomond "

He must have taken the high road, because it's taken him long enough to get back there !

Just in case anyone from the band is actually reading this :



Lyrics of Loch Lomond song.
By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes,
Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond
Where me and my true love were ever wont to gae,
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond.


Chorus

O ye'll tak' the high road and I'll tak' the low road,
And I'll be in Scotland afore ye.
But me and my true love will never meet again,
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond.


'Twas there that we parted in yon shady glen,
On the steep, steep side o' Ben Lomond.
Where in deep purple hue, the hieland hills we view,
And the moon comin' out in the gloamin'.


The wee birdies sing and the wild flowers spring,
And in sunshine the waters are sleeping:
But the broken heart, it kens nae second spring again,
Tho' the waefu' may cease from their greeting.

Love to hear an old Beatles song like
I Feel Fine or Your Gonna Lose that Girl or Anna or Day Tripper or Accross the Universe


Very rarely on Ssiriuss you will hear him do TELL ME WHY from long long long ago...

That would be cool! Don't think Max has enough toms on his drum kit to make it epic though...
