Info

The above lyrics are for the live 25 Feb 2012 performance of SOUL MAN at The Press Room in Asbury Park, NJ, during a surprise appearance at a gig with Boccigalupe and the Badboys. The song was played in a full-band version. Only partial video footage is in circulation; the above lyrics are transcribed from that partial video.

This was a show to celebrate the life of Springsteen's long-time personal trainer Tony Strollo, who passed away on 07 Feb 2012 at age 40. After joining Tony's brother Michael for one song, Springsteen played a seven-song set backed by Boccigalupe and the Badboys.
