That song made me cry
Meh…that year’s Bob Dylan.
Uhhhh … SJ3, did you just compare Bruce (friggin’) Springsteen with Bobby D.?? Or are ya saying every year some yea-hoo is compared to him?
For me, I can do w/o Gouge’em-at–the-Gates Bruce. Boring.
I’m saying Bruce is weak Bob. Lots of huffing and puffing, little poetry.
(That ought to stir them up.)
Oh….yeah Lone, I am saying that for about a decade, everybody with a hoarse voice was called the next Bob Dylan…kinda like…ah….Gurshall?
Took my youngest son to see BD at the Family Circle Stadium in Charleston. Sprinkled on us. Sprang for the 70 dollar T shirt. He got a big kick out of it all. It was the first Father Son Road Trip since the Mizzou introduction to the SEC . If you thought he was hoarse back in the day you should hear him now…
Springsteen on Dylan.
” So I’m just here tonight to say thanks, to say that I wouldn’t be here without you, to say that there isn’t a soul in this room who does not owe you their thanks. And to steal a line from one of your songs, whether you like it or not, ‘you was the brother that I never had.’ Congratulations.”
And Bluto was right, that was a “friggin’ gorgeous” song.
The next Bob Dylan Club.
Bruce may not write better lyrics, but he can out-sing and out play the former Mr. Zimmerman (who also never surrounded himself with sidemen as good as the Big Man or Miami Steve.)
The Eagles are to The Dude as Springsteen is to me.
^^^What he said.
Bad Scooter’s going to give you a Tenth Avenue Freezeout next time you try to eat lunch in Jersey again no matter how hard you try
When he reached into the crowd, I though he was gonna bring out Courtney Cox again.
I had to look that up…
She was paid $350 for her part as the “surprised” girl pulled from the crowd to dance with Bruce Springsteen in his 1984 video “Dancing in the Dark.”
Too bad she ended up with that clown David Arquette.
She shoulda stuck with a good southern boy.
They divorced this past May.
So you’re saying there’s a chance…..?
