John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band

Things must be tough all over when virtual clones of Springsteen and his E Street Band can muster their own musical following. John Cafferty seems to be cashing in on excess demand for the Springsteen sound and, with this video, the Springsteen look. This one is the Born in the USA video all over again but without the powerful street scenes. It seems this clip maker’s ideas of personal hardship stopped at people who dance on the sidewalk. Maybe it is the sincerest form of flattery, but this seems more like counterfeit than imitation.
