  1. Not that I recall. Badlands opened one of the Manchester shows and not this one in Bologna;
  2. Had to pause it midway through for the Graham Norton show - about as rambling
  3. Brilliant. Loving it. I even don't mind not hearing any crowd interaction at end of Out In The Street Tenth starting now Lets see...
  4. Listened to Emmylou Harris' version the other day - wow very good also. Also Serena Ryder's http://www.covermesongs.com/2019/09/best-bruce-springsteen-covers-ever.html
  5. For anyone who hasn't seen the film yet it is showing Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week at the Mockingbird a small cinema in Digbeth (Peaky Blinder territory) for £3.95 https://ticketing.eu.veezi.com/sessions/?siteToken=etrhh0m2xpra010jp0khfs56mw
  6. Kitty's Back is pure joy. Clarence's voice at the end "It's Alright..."
  7. vocal & sax clarity on Promised Land is stunning Streets of Fire knocks me sideways - sure I heard individual screams midway though
  8. Little Steven was on This Morning on ITV with Eamonn and Ruth this morning. Nothing groundbreaking except he's put aside time after his tour to assist Bruce with the new ESB album in the run up to the new year and likely tour in 2020
  9. Very valid points. In terms of UK press, Bruce was mass popular in the mid 1980's which kinda put off a lot of the hip people. Recall Billy Bragg making disparaging comments about his mass popularity - you sure wouldn't hear that now although it was probably more of a piss take than anything. Bruce was definitely not cool enough for skool in the late 1980's and for much of the 1990's at least not in the UK. Sharlene Spitteri from the band Texas sums it up in a Q article I read she was quoted as saying "Bruce should play Born to Run and then feck off basically" And I think that was the feeling in the mid 1990's amongst those who think they know better - The Radio One and Oasis Britpop generation and those really into way too cool indie music and the Manchester scene from the 1980's and 1990's Joy Division etc... Joe Strummer of the Clash stood out from the crowd with his famous quote about Bruce but aside from him he was severely under-appreciated in critical circles by those who think they know best. That seemed to change late 1990's and into the 2000's it became cool to name check Bruce if you were an aspiring musician all of a sudden and papers like the Guardian began to take him seriously again. Radio 2 became cool as well in the 2000's which kinda says a lot. Alt Country, Folk, and Country music is now much more hip in the UK than it was in the 1980's/90's
  10. Anyone seen the trailer yet. Another reason to go watch BBTL again?
  11. I will definitely watch it again this week. What I'm keen to work out is if that shelf he looks at in his college dorm room was containing his diaries or were they springsteen brucelegs/cassette covers? Anyone else see that clip?
  12. https://www.awardscircuit.com/2019/08/14/film-review-blinded-by-the-light-brilliantly-realizes-what-loving-bruce-springsteen-truly-means/ Very enthusiastic review from the POV of trying to understand how Bruce's music can change a listeners way of life
  13. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/arts/film/reviews/article-blinded-by-the-light-is-not-the-boss-of-bruce-springsteen-movies/ while any film that features the Boss’s greatest work (his 1973 album Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J.is heard almost in its entirety) has to be worth something Did I miss something when I saw it???
  14. The intensity of Bruce during the Darkness shows combined with E Street Band at the peak of their powers and Bruce very emotional performance
