Merry Bruce Christmas!

Published 2010-12-24

Christmas is over us and 2010 is running out of time. Greasy Lake would like to wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Festive Festivus, or whatever you're celebrating. If you're among the people who didn't get the Darkness box yet, hopefully it will be under the Christmas tree for you. From a Bruce perspective that box has been the definite highlight of the year and will be hard to surpas ... Read more

Webcast starting to show up

Published 2010-12-15

The live performance from December 7, where Bruce and the E Street Band performed for a very limited number of people at the Casino in Asbury Park, has started to show up online as an official Christmas webcast. We can't tell you what it contains, because so far you can only watch in in the US through something called Read more

Bruce does Bruce

Published 2010-11-17

So Bruce was on Jimmy Fallon's Late Night talkshow last night. He was interviewed, performed a couple of songs, yada yada.... Just the usual drill in connection with a new release. Wrong! This time he did something he's never done before. Heck, I don't know if any star of his stature has ever done anything like it. It was weird. It was surreal. It was so unlikely that probably not everybod ... Read more

Darkness box hits the shelves

Published 2010-11-15

The Promise was kept. At least in Europe, the Darkness boxset and the separate The Promise double album are now available. Americans will have to wait till Tuesday, but after a three-month wait, one more day seems like it might just be possible to overcome for even the most impatient fan. What really sucks are the several cases we've heard of where stores haven't had enough of the blu-ray versi ... Read more

Two good men found in Pittsburgh

Published 2010-11-05

It was billed as an anniversary show for the Springsteen-produced American Babylon album, but that was probably just an excuse for the two old friends, Bruce and Joe Grushecky, to get together and rock the house again. Whatever the case, only four songs from the 15-year old album were played, and focus was on songs that that are always highlights when Joe and Bruce are in charge o ... Read more

T minus two weeks and counting

Published 2010-11-02

It seemed hopelessly far off in the future when the Darkness box was announced back at the end of August. With only two weeks left before the big day, it looks like we may actually make it. We may actually get to hold this perhaps most eagerly awaited Springsteen release ever, in our trembling, sweaty hands.

With every new glimpse of what the box contains, expectations have go ... Read more

And the winner is...

Published 2010-10-24

Two weeks ago we launched a new trivia quiz in order to celebrate our new design, and today, almost 200 entries later, we are happy to announce the winner. And the name is...

Brad Elliott

We deliberately didn't say "the lucky winner", because the fact is, Brad was the only one to get all the answers right. So he is in truth the "very com ... Read more

Support cancer fight and win book

Published 2010-10-17

Our friend Lawrence Kirsch has donated a brand new copy of his first much sought-after book For You to a raffle benefitting the Canadian Cancer Society. All you have to do to get a chance to win the book is to make a $10 donation. A $15 donation will give you three chances.

Bruce and Grushecky team up again

Published 2010-10-14

In a mini-reprise of 1995's "October Assault" when Bruce played with his friend Joe Grushecky's band for a week, the two old friends will join forces again in November for two shows. The shows will take place on November 4 and 5 at something called Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum in Pittsburgh. They will celebrate the 15th anniversary of Grushecky's American Babylon album which was p ... Read more

Shine silently

Published 2010-10-12

A listener of E Street Radio called in the other day with the following story about going to a Bruce show in 2008 with her silent daughter. The story deserves to be heard by even more people so we're happy to share it with you, in Joanne Obara's own writing, here on Greasy Lake, just as another example of how Bruce's music can literally make a difference in people's lives.

I went to my first Springsteen concert in Copenhagen just after his concert in East Berlin. DDR-TV sent later from East Berlin concert I recorded on videotape and later put onto Youtube.
Katie Charles commenting on this: Sounds like it was a great concert ! Sorry to to have missed it.
Thank goodness all of Bruce's concerts are an amazing experience. Rock on Burce !!!
Mike commenting on this: A musician, as an artist, is no more obligated to put out music deemed appropriate by the masses then is a painter required to cover a canvass with themes imposed on him or her. Springsteen's choice to release an album of material he either created earlier or covering another songwriters material simply expands his musical horizons for himself and those fans who truly enjoy his music. If you have been a fan for as long as I have, starting with 1973's The Wild....etc, then you come to expect different textures and approaches to what he releases. Sit back and enjoy, take in a show, compile a playlist and enjoy the songs Bruce puts forth, there are after-all hundreds to choose from.
