BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN STEALS THE SHOW AT HIS OWN MUSICARES TRIBUTE

2/11/2013

Leave it to Bruce Springsteen to close out his own MusiCares tribute with his own five-song set, according to Vintage Vinyl News. Springsteen was honored as the 2013 MusiCares Person of the Year on Friday night (February 8th) in L.A. Among the legendary presenters and performers that showed up to pay tribute to "The Boss" at the Los Angeles Convention Center, was Elton John, Neil Young, Jackson Browne, Mavis Staples, Sting, Emmylou Harris, Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello, among others. Longtime Springsteen follower, The Daily Show's Jon Stewart, served as the evening's host.

Springsteen and the E Street Band's Max Weinberg, Roy Bittan, and Garry Tallent closed the show with a five song set, which kicked off with two show-stoppers from his latest Wrecking Ball album -- "We Take Care Of Our Own" and "Death To My Hometown" with Tom Morello. Morello stuck around for "Thunder Road" and "Born To Run" before all the performers joined the quintet for a rousing finale of "Glory Days."

Steve Van Zandt told us that Bruce Springsteen's latest work isn't that far away from what first attracted him to his earliest songs: "Well, he's still writing at a very high level of quality and that's always inspiring to me. Sometimes it maybe a little more politically slanted or socially slanted than romantically or emotionally slanted -- but, y'know, I don't really judge that way. You go onstage with the script that you have and you do that as well as you can possibly do it. Y'know, that's all I know."
