Bruce Springsteen Joins Fellow Jersey Rockers The Gaslight Anthem on Stage in Asbury Park
No matter what anyone has to say about New Jersey, there is one thing they do pretty damn well, and that’s play rock ‘n’ roll.
One of the Garden State’s most prestigious residents offered some support to one of its up and coming bands when Bruce Springsteen jumped on stage to join [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Gaslight Anthem[/lastfm] midset Friday night in Asbury Park.
The Boss strapped on a guitar and lent his voice to Gaslight’s song “American Slang,” off of their breakthrough 2010 album of the same name. A fan in the crowd caught it on video, which is tough to hear since everyone in attendance at the Convention Hall in Asbury Park was singing every word at the top of their lungs.
Native’s of New Brunswick, The Gaslight Anthem’s sound is heavily influenced by Springsteen, and The Boss certainly appears to be a fan of theirs considering this is the third time he’s joined them on stage. He played “The 59 Sound” with the band at the Glastonbury Festival in England on June 27, 2009 and at Hard Rock Calling at Hyde Park in London the following day.
Gaslight’s lead singer Brian Fallon joined Springsteen and the [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]E Street Band[/lastfm] for “No Surrender” on both of those dates as well.
