  1. Mainly from Dave Marsh I suppose. Didn't he write somewhere that Bruce played much of that show with his back to the audience? Not sure if it was in "Born To Run" or elsewhere though. Great post BTW!
  2. RIP Prince

    OK. I was wrong, and I stand corrected. That cover of "Purple Rain" was totally awesome.
  3. RIP Prince

    Disagree on what exactly?
  4. RIP Prince

    R.I.P. Prince. A *true* musical genius gone. (And just for the record: Bruce Springsteen wouldn't be capable of properly covering any song by His Purpleness.)
  5. Misheard lyrics

    "For the ones who had an ocean, an ocean deep inside..." "Someday girl, I don't know when, we're gonna get to that place we really wanna go: Milwaukee in the sun..." "Benny Goodman is so hard to find..."
  6. European Tour Confirmed -

    FWIW, the same shitty website that originally spread the rumour aboutthe July 7Vienna date ( now reporting that Bruce won't be playing inAustria on this tour after all.
  7. European Tour Confirmed -

    Worst case scenario. I'd rather have the old geezer skipping Vienna/Austria altogether than playing *there*.
  8. Dollhouse

    I was there. A really powerful performance that pissed all over the studio version IMO. It always has amazed me that he never played it again after Vienna.

    Peter also had a profound knowledge of Springsteen's early record releases. In the early 2000s, he was the one who gave me the full lowdown on the infamous promo-only picture sleeve for the U.S. "Blinded By The Light" single, contributing detailed information I'm sure not many people had ever heard of. Great guy. I hope he's well.
  10. Official Tour Details

    This pretty much sums up my own feelings. Yeah.
  11. If that had been a factor, they would have had to leave off many of the other songs too.
  12. I'm not going to watch that doc prior to its physical release next week, although I did peek in for the portion where Bruce plays the last verse of "Point Blank" on acoustic guitar, which admittedly is pretty awesome. In general though, I don't have high hopes for this, as it'll be quite difficult for me to sit through an hour of what is mainly Bruce blabbing away in some fashion, y'know. Plus, I find it nothing short of unforgivable that a documentary about the making of "The River" (of all albums!) does NOT feature any involvement from the members of the E Street Band.
  13. That is certainly the best thing about this doc -- watching (and hearing) "Blood Brothers" evolve from an early musical sketch into the glorious final take as it would eventually appear on "Greatest Hits". ...and also Secret Garden True. I really like the scene where he first plays that one to the band on the piano. The "voting" for David Kahne's string remix is pretty awkward though...Bob Clearmountain comes across as a really arrogant prick therein.
