We’ve been looking for another excuse to include Bruce Springsteen in this blog and the resumption of his Wrecking Ball tour tonight in Ottowa after a three week hiatus following his very late night NJ birthday concert gives it to us….. Here’s Eddie Vedder (who periodically joins Bruce on stage including the current tour) and Bruce performing Pearl Jam’s “Better Man” live with the E Street Band. There’s no direct insect connection, but so what!
It’s a great version of the song, with the joy of the performers being so infectious, and Clarence’s unbelievable sax solo (We miss you Big Man!) beginning at 3:45 with some hints of the Promised Land thrown in.
One question – how could this have been left off of Rolling Stone’s list of great Springsteen collaborations? Enjoy and have a great weekend!
