I am still buying live albums off Bruce Springsteen’s live.net website (here), APRIL 23, 1988 LOS ANGELES SPORTS ARENA LOS ANGELES, CA is my fifth but it has a special place in my heart because it is the first tour I actually saw him live and went from a sneer to a jeer overnight.

As I grew older, the Who’s music seemed to grow with me. The sexual frustration, the politics, identity. These things coursed through my veins with every concurring Who album. I always found myself there somewhere in their music. “The Seeker”; the seeker is the guy in “Born to Run.”

“If this album hadn’t been so impactful to the fans, if they hadn’t gone out and broken so many records and made sure that I knew that this album was the most important one to them and the one they liked the most, I probably would have had to pull more old hits into the set.”

The sound of this CD is high quality but the only deterrent is that on a few songs you truly get to hear every note that the late “Phantom” Dan Federici plays. This is not the best live show that I have heard them play but between you and me, I would gladly give up a couple years of my life to have been there in person. Ladies and gentlemen, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band…

Mountain Of Love (Live) – From New Year’s Eve 1975 and look at this: he was 26 years old at the same and the King of every move in the rock and roll yearbook, this Johnny Rivers cover is proof, a blast of joy and fresh air which ignotes with a call for the Big Man – Terrific – A

I don’t ask for much: money, girls, tickets to D’Angelo, more money, a very long life with lots of money, but otherwise I leave you to your own devises and I don’t pray on your ass every day. But pleaaaaase, let the next round of leaks be from Sony Music

None of that excuses the brutal stupidity of Bruce springsteen, Dave Grohl (who doesn’t have a brain, Bruce lends him one) and Zac Brown covering “Fortunate Son”. The more I think about fortunate son, the more crappy it hits me as

U2 (in red) is the band which promotes the most its latest album without any doubt, whereas the Rolling Stones hardly played their latest effort and were rather stuck in some 60s nostalgia… they surely played all these 60s hits. Springsteen had about the same attitude, to a lesser extent.

When Bruce wrote Outlaw Pete he didn’t just write a great song, he created a great character. The first time I heard the song this book played out in my head. Like Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, Dorothy Gale and, for me, even Popeye, Outlaw Pete cuts deep into the folklore of our country and weaves its way into the fabric of great American literary characters.”

This is the beauty of youth. You cannot or will not be denied when it comes to rock and roll.
