  1. Your interview covered material that I'd hoped Bruce would discuss much more in his autobiography, so many thanks for asking the questions.
  2. Great article. From the comments posted below it "He can't take and entire stadium in his hands as Bon Jovi can"
  3. Terrific concert though, I may be tempted to buy.
  4. The only "band version" of The Angel.
  5. For Kay (I know she loves SD).
  6. DVD version on Jungleland. http://jungleland.dnsalias.com/torrents-details.php?id=40386
  7. Speaking personally, I find it impossible to have my arms raised and dancing like a madman for (and in the case of that clip after) 3.5 hours. At your next show, you'll have to get one of your mates to film you, then post it on here to show where all of us in Buffalo that night were going wrong.
  8. So so wrong. The crowd in Buffalo were fantastic that night. All standing from the outset, very few beer runs etc. Considering my previous show had been in Spain two months earlier, I was amazed by the Buffalo audience. You can never judge a crowd from a bootleg, official or otherwise.
  9. I think a lot of us who went to the show thought it might be the last ESB one, the fact that Greetings would be played in full wasn't a factor since that announcement came very late. It seemed unlikely barring some recovery miracle that Clarence would tour again and many of us felt Bruce wouldn't continue with the band without him. Sadly as we know, Clarence didn't make another tour but Bruce took the time off, regrouped and in choosing Jake, gave us all renewed vigour. Clarence, like Danny, will never be forgotten for as long as Bruce's legacy continues.
  10. I'd only sub Club Tropicana for Freedom. Not that CT is the better song but I've always found it OTT fun. Cowboys and Angels I'd have in a top 10.
  11. Slow, slow, a little bit quicker then slow again.
  12. This Buffalo 2009 archive release however does get referenced in Bruce's book.
  13. A really impossible task but if I only had 8 songs, I wouldn't tire of any of these. None of them are obscure and all but one come from the 60s. They've held up since then, so they must have been ok. She's Not There - Zombies Haunting, still sounds fresh and well ahead of it's time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=it68QbUWVPM You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling - Righteous Brothers Perfect in every way. We Can Work It Out - Beatles The Beatles ability to craft enduring pop songs from the most simple lyrics. This Old Heart Of Mine - Isley Brothers My favourite Motown song, people will always dance to this. Paint It Black - Rolling Stones So many great Stones singles, this one has like so many a great intro, then bam! When You're Young And In Love - The Marvelettes A sweet soul Motown song and everybody has surely been young and in love. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZtGGZmTE0E Suzanne - Leonard Cohen Tough to pick just one from LC but it was the first I ever heard. Born To Run - Bruce Springsteen 'nuff said. Couldn't choose just one Dylan song, tried but failed. Book Sunset Song - Lewis Grassic Gibbon. Luxury item - The Godfather (and something to watch it on).
