Lunch Break: London Calling

This seems to be from a Grammy Awards show, not that long ago. Notable because the front line of dudes is Stevie Van Zant, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, and Dave Grohl. That Grohl dude is everywhere.

Presumably this was a tribute after Joe Strummer died, in 2002, though I’m not sure how to look that up quickly, nor if it is important. Could have been 2003 (Strummer died in 2002). I like the way the guys do the share-the-microphone singing thing, and how big and veiny the Boss’s throat gets when he’s singing. It’s also cool how they trade lines, and how cacophonous the stomp gets as they go on. Loud counts.

It’s a nice tribute.
