Bruce pays tribute

Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band (eh.. orchestra these days) have played 4 shows since the passing of Levon Helm, with many in the fan community, including myself, wondering if and when some tribute might come.  The Seeger Sessions Band played "Rag Mama Rag" several times, making it an obvious choice.  I would have loved to hear them tackle "The Night they Drove Old Dixie Down". Instead, as the the first US leg of the tour ended last night in Newark, they opened the encore with "The Weight".  A fitting tribute and a heartfelt rendition by Bruce, who I image has already been thinking a lot about loss nightly on stage these past few months.
