The Friday OT: Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band: Prove it all night

This is why he's called The Boss.

I've had the luck to have found some great rock videos for The Friday OT over time, but this one beats the whole lot. This is rock at its peak; the players, the atmosphere and the charisma that drips out of Bruce. But then there's the musicianship on offer too. For a start, if you can't play live go home and Springsteen/E Street will always be one of best live shows ever, but on top of that there's THIS SONG, recorded back in September 1978, that nails the top live group at top form. The whole thing is spellbinding, but do watch out for what The Boss does between 2:30 and 4:00.

This was sent in by reader 'BC' and I thank him profusely for doing so. Rock at its best and mere words do it no justice, so just hit play and enjoy.
