Lucky town (live 92 snl) bruce springsteen by runawaydream
This was a strange time for Bruce and Bruce fans. It’s almost as if he was trying too hard to be “Bruce Springsteen”. I know it was the early 90’s and grunge was in, but between the ripped jeans, the incredibly gravely voice, and Bruce playing with a “non E Street Band” band I can’t say I’m a huge fan of this video. Oddly enough, I like “Lucky Town”, one of the few I like from his “Other Band” era, but watching him play it here is just odd.
I came across this video when I was looking for Bruce’s 2002 Saturday Night Live performance with the E Street Band. I believe Matt Damon was the host. But this was all I could find. I did not even know Bruce performed on this show. To my knowledge those were Bruce’s only two SNL performances. However I can confirm that this is Tom Hanks' first, but hopefully not last, appearance on Legends of Springsteen.
