There Goes My (Guitar) Hero... Springsteen's solo (and all others' parts) ID'd in new music-video

March 23, 2024

There's a new official music-video for Mark Knopfler's Guitar Heroes' version of "Going Home (Theme From Local Hero)," the all-star charity recording to benefit Teen Cancer Trust and Teen Cancer America, on which we reported previously here and here. This new music-video identifies each of the supergroup's members' individual solos and parts, including Bruce Springsteen's contribution, which begins at the 4:08 mark and lasts about forty seconds. Check it out below:

We definitely can hear some surf-guitar sound and style in Bruce's part, as well as the influence of Glen Campbell's work on some of his classic hits like "Galveston" and "Wichita Lineman." It's also so cool to hear Bruce trading off his licks (via mixing-board magic) with Ry Cooder, Sam Fender, Buddy Guy, Nile Rodgers, Zak Starkey, Pete Townshend, Joe Walsh, and Ronnie Wood. (Hey, Boss, speakin' of Buddy Guy, now that you're healthy and back on tour with "a much wider song-selection going on," maybe you could reconsider that Buddy Guy cover suggestion of ours from last September, especially since you're still "young" enough to pull it off. Just a thought...)
