  1. Oh, my avatar answers your question
  2. My screen name comes from my take on Jersey Girl..my best friend and I always say we lived west coast versions of Bruce's younger life having grown up at the same time. My avatar is a picture taken in Nashville in 2008 with my goofy sign in hopes of hearing Drive All Night live. Thankfully, that happened down the road!
  3. Please don't call him "The Boss" the whole time we talk in some line somewhere. Why does that annoy me? I have no idea.
  4. "Both Springsteen and The E Street Band show no signs of slowing down"
  5. That article made me pour a glass of wine..but I am just a west coast looney with inconsistent viewpoints who was born and raised in San Francisco and agree with Bruce cancelling the show.
  6. Well...did you notice that her last name is Clinton?? pretty funny
  7. You pick your battles where you think your activism might have some impact. Does anybody believe that if Bruce cancelled his shows in Italy, The Pope would come to the square and start performing gay marriages? Or his cancellation might put a spotlight on the little known fact that gay Catholics can't marry?
  8. It is too bad the autobiography has probably already gone to press. This would make for a very interesting chapter, should he chose to reveal the decision making process. It probably wouldn't change the mind of people who are running around trying to figure out when his hotel reservation was cancelled, but it would be interesting.
  9. Little Steven's twitter feed is quite interesting today. In between tweets about The River being his favorite album he is attempting to explain to the uninformed haters that a transvestite is not transgendered. He also gave a shout out to Bryan Adams.
  10. I guess this thread is seductive. I swore I wouldn't but here goes. I spent all my working life as an Adult Probation Officer. Several of those years I spent supervising a sex offender program. The ignorance that drives these reactionary laws is astounding. The idea that gender identification or same sex attraction bares any relationship to pedophilia or a violent sex crime is beyond me. This ignorance is dangerous. I support Bruce cancelling the show. I am sorry for people who missed out seeing the show, I understand how you were looking forward to the experience. If you lost money on travel to the show I hope it was disposable income otherwise this might be an opportunity to re evaluate the money you spend on entertainment. He stood up because someone needed to and I am glad it was someone I admire. I get that the late cancellation has created controversy. None of us has a clue why that happened. Maybe someone in his family, inner circle or organization lobbied him because they, or a loved one, was effected by the law. I doubt on Thursday night he flipped on MSNBC and in some cavalier rock star mode made one call and cancelled the show. He walks out onto that stage and gives us everything he has and then digs for more, so the man does not easily walk away.
  11. One of his best as far as I am concerned. The lyrics to this song are brilliant. The concept that the girls in their summer clothes are not passing by him, but passing him by... it is just so poignant.
  12. I am Bruce's age and I never wonder about most of the stuff on this thread. I read the opening question on this thread and thought, 'Uh, no" but sometimes I wonder about the 25 year olds who are throwing themselves at an a 66 year old. But, I can't blame them..when you are hot you are hot. I will be in Oakland and night one of LA if anyone has any questions about how to maintain the rock and roll spirit into your twilight years.
  13. Makes perfect sense to me. Other than the Japanese guitar most of that song is my childhood set to music.
  14. If Pa's eyes were windows into a world so deadly and true You couldn't stop me from looking but you kept me from crawling through
