2011_01_pstump04.jpg Former Fall Out Boy frontdude Patrick Stump is an ardent admirer of fellow Chicagoan Kanye West. In his most recent live shows, Stump has taken to covering West's "All of the Lights," a standout track amongst an album filled of them, last year's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Rolling Stone decided to film Stump covering the Rihanna-addled, Gasper Noe-ripping off track at Chicago's landmark-vying Lakeview venue Schubas. The venerable rock mag was generous to post the clip at their website. A brief interview about Stump's solo tour precedes the music. Unlike Kanye's video, you can watch this one without fear of an eye-explosion. (Or a more serious medical reaction.)
