ACROSS THE BORDER
Where the banned are
...& it was always meant to sound this way...
Hey ho rock n roll!!!!
Bruce tells the story in the great, great documentary "Chuck Berry: Hail! Hail! Rock ,n, Roll." A wildly entertaining movie.
I knew I'd seen it somewhere.
And, you're right, that is a great movie. Keith Richards is both cool and hilarious in equal measure throughout the film.
I've read that also, plus seen footage of Bruce talking about it in some type of 'history of rock' doco. I think the story went that Chuck just said 'play for the money, boys' except Bruce and the band weren't being paid a cent for the backing band part of the gig
I think I remember reading that, back in the early 70’s, Bruce and the band opened for Chuck Berry. Which meant they were his back up band that day. If I remember correctly, the first time they even saw Chuck Berry that night was already on stage for the performance... Or did I dream this?
I love how Bruce looks at him as if he can't really believe he's playing with him.
Where is the right thread
Dan... There's a fresh Sprinsteen song out today... Just saying...
"Just saying". What does that imply? ....Does that means I shouldn't have posted an old clip? Why would posting this clip detract from a new song? Perhaps this is an unwritten rule I'm not aware of?
I wasn't being serious... 🙂
@Louisa Oh...pardon me.
Still the greatest rock and roll song ever written
