Quite possibly the most horrific mis-match ever - Bruce Springsteen is singing "Where The Streets Have No Name" while the other 3 members of U2 are playng it. I like the song and I love Bruce, but God DAMN was that awful.

***EDIT***
They went into "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For".
Even worse. Ack
Will Smith's character Hitch needs to slap all 4 of them across the face and tell them to not ever do that again.

Bill-

I watched it with the volume down (while sitting at a bar in DIA) and Bruce looked like he was on the verge of an aneurysm, as usual. Glad I didn't hear it.

Out of curiosity, I googled Springsteen's age - he is 65-years-old. He looks great, but has never sounded great, imo. Smile

I thought he did better on "I still Haven't Found" but that is not saying much.

I love Bruce, but your correctly pointed out that his voice works for HIS music, and not much else.

No, but I played the Hammond at Woodstock on Cocker's "With a Little Help From My Friends".

Brilliant.

Speaking of playing, I wish I could play a fraction as well as Evans did. His phrasing and voicings are just stunning. I have transcriptions of a bunch of his stuff, and I can pick my way through Waltz for Debby at about 1/10th actual speed.
