    CNN says it was 2 shots not 1.  Does the title need updating?

    Yeah CNN says Bruce admitted that he took 2 shots. An officer confirmed he witnessed him take only 1 shot and then get on his motorcycle. Sources close to Bruce have of course also said he was offered the shot from the fans. So were the fans arrested too? Were there fans really there? I am hoping that wasn't made up by Bruce and his people. Because it does seem also odd that 3 months ago this happened, fans were taking photos with Bruce and Bruce was arrested. What Bruce fan wouldn't instantly take to the internet to talk about this when it happened? Did the fans leave before the arrest? Police said Bruce had the empty bottle.

    "I don't know why they stopped him," the source said of the authorities. "I mean technically you're not allowed to drink in a state park, and I don't know, maybe, if a policeman sees somebody drinking and doesn't give them a ticket, they lose their job," the individual added. "Any kind of alcohol-related driving thing is serious," the source added.

    One officer said they observed Springsteen "consume a shot of Patron tequila and then get on his motorcycle and start the engine," according to a probable cause statement obtained by CNN.

    Springsteen told the officer he had consumed two shots of tequila in the previous 20 minutes, according to the probable cause statement.

    "SPRINGSTEEN smelt strongly of alcohol coming off his person and had glassy eyes," the officer said in the statement, adding he "was visibly swaying back and forth while I observed his eyes."

    Springsteen, according to the officer, took 45 steps during the "walk and turn" test "instead of the instructed 18."

    Prior to the screening the officer said he approached Springsteen and informed him alcohol was prohibited in the park, and asked whether Springsteen was leaving, to which "he confirmed he was going to drive out of the park," the statement said.

    CNN has reached out to representatives for Springsteen and the National Park Service for further comment.

     

  2. Not sure if it was posted but Rolling Stone in the past 45 minutes added some more and CNN said his court appearances at the end of this month...

    According to Glenn Kassman, a criminal and municipal defense attorney in New Jersey who specializes in DUI/DWI cases, the case will be very hard to prove. “I would say that they’re never going to prove DWI based on that,” says Kassman, commenting on the police report. “There is a chasm — a grand canyon — between probable cause to arrest on suspicion of drunk driving or operating a vehicle in an intoxicated condition, and proof beyond reasonable doubt that he did so.”

    Of the police report, Kassman also noted that “there’s nothing in there to suggest that there’s any other substance” apart from alcohol. The fact that Springsteen technically faces federal charges because he was arrested in a National Park will not impact the way Springsteen’s case plays out in court, according to Kassman. “As a practical matter, it’s treated the same,” he says. “They don’t come close to establishing that he operated his vehicle in an intoxicated condition,” says Kassman.

    Springsteen is expected to have his first hearing “towards the end of February,” CNN confirmed via a spokesman for the US Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey.

    “When this is all resolved, I think, people are gonna have some serious doubts about the seriousness of this, especially when the actual details of this are revealed, including the blood alcohol level,” a source close to Springsteen told CNN earlier today.

  3. My big question is...why did this take 3 months to leak? Celebs are arrested all the time for being drunk. The media, sites like TMZ instantly report on it. So how in the hell did Bruce fly under the radar for 3 months? Bruce arrested in NJ in November but we find out about it in February? Come on! Now we have new reports saying he took 2 shots, had an empty bottle. This is said to be from the police report. No mention of fans any more. So Bruce on his motorcycle went to the park and got wasted? Just doesn't seem Bruce like. Of course I don't know Bruce but still something doesn't seem right.

    It really sounds like a cop arrested him for no reason, tried to cover his ass and he clearly was in the wrong here and they tried to keep this under wraps. Now it has leaked with different accounts. Also...where is the mugshot? Again celeb mugshots get out pretty damn fast. I just never have heard of ANY celebrity arrested and it took 3 months for that arrest to be made public

    I remember Bruce saying more than a decade ago before the Super Bowl half time show performance how hard it was to get going for just two or three songs when they are used to playing for 3 hours. And that was just after two years of touring together at that time. Can’t be easy for them to turn a live performance tap on and off so quickly as they had to last night. 

    I am sure they needed that live fix last night but 2 songs and I am betting they were ready for 3+ more hrs. Bruce has often sounded a bit off, rusty when doing shows like this. Last time on SNL he sounded rusty. At 71 though he still looks and sounds great I think, as does the rest of the band. Not to mention they didn't perform until after midnight and it has been 3 years since he performed like this. Rust is expected for sure. It just makes you want this damn virus gone even more now so we can get live shows again. We need it...Bruce for sure needs it!

    Can this really be consider a real ESB performance than? ;) 

    Sure. I mean is it no longer the ESB minus Clarence or Danny? Or when Max (who wasn't an original member) had his son fill in? Those shows were odd without Max. Or when Steve, also not an original, wasn't there due to filming or when he quit? Gary is the last original member of the E Street Band (not counting Bruce) and sucks he wont be there. First show he has missed correct? I am sure everyone is so ready to get out there and play.

    I'll be picking mind up at Wal-Mart tomorrow. 

    I pre-ordered mine from Wal-Mart's website when it was announced and the album is no longer on their website. The vinyl version is but the CD is not. I wont let me cancel my order so I guess I will see tomorrow if it's ready for pick up or if I will have to just go back to the limited music section and buy it HOWEVER I asked an employee last time I was there and he said the album is not in their system so Wal-Mart might not get it! The vinyl version wont be available until 10/28 btw. Below is the original Wal-Mart link for the CD which is empty now...

  7. 1. New York City Serenade 

    2. Tenth Avenue-Freeze Out

    3. Backstreets

    4. Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)

    5.  Badlands

    6. Drive All Night

    7.  Thunder Road

    8. Thundercrack

    9.  Streets of Fire

    10. Frankie

    It really is ever changing outside of the top 4. NYC Serenade is what truly got me into Bruce. That first time hearing that song so many years ago made me know why this guy was The Boss. Glad I FINALLY got to hear it live on his last tour and for the first time since the 70s he played it here in DC.

    Yes, I noticed it too. I thought he sounded fine, but I cannot deny that I was really surprised by his appearance. He looked old and frail in a way he never has. That would be normal for his age, obviously, but it surprised me because the contrast with the last couple of times we saw him is huge. Just 4 months ago, at the Sting & Friends concert (see below), he looked tour-ready. And he looked fine at Light of Day in January too. I also noticed what you said about his teeth. It looked like he had badly fitting dentures, honestly...

    I'm really not trying to be negative. It was nice that he did this, good to see him, and his voice was fine. Just hope he's doing okay all around...

    ). 

    First comment my dad made was that Bruce has dentures. Why his jaw looks different and when he talked he slurred his speech a bit. He said Joe Biden's jaw looks different now due to dentures and you notice him slur his words at times. We need this virus to go away so Bruce can do what he does best. Bruce is Popeye and the stage is his spinach. Sitting around the house like this is something I am sure makes him antsy like it does for all of us. He sounded great though. I don't think anyone is being negative. Bruce is nearing 71...still looks in great shape.

    Am I the only one, who noticed this, but at the beginning he spoke a few words. Somehow, his jaw looks strange to me. O.K. he´s getting older and we didn´t see him for a long time, but somehow……..<_<

    I showed it to my dad and first thing he said...Bruce might have dentures now. He said when he talked his voice slurred a bit and could be why his jaw looks different. He pointed out Joe Biden, who clearly has dentures, has a different looking jaw that a few years ago.

  10. So have plans changed because Bruce himself said that his 2017 tour would not be with the E Street Band. He said the reason he did The River 2016 tour was to tour with them again because it would be a few years inbetween tours, he was doing a solo tour

    Quote

    "The project I've been working on is more of a solo project," he said. "It wasn't a project I was going to probably take the band out on. So I said, 'Gee, that's going to push the band playing again until a ways in the future. It'll be nice to get some playing in so you don't wind up being two or three years between E Street tours.' This will give us a chance to get out there and stretch our muscles a little bit."  - Bruce Springsteen December 2015, Rolling Stone

     

  11. Never cared too much for the original version so saw little to no need to re-recorded it again. This version is better, might be even better live however I can't believe this is the first single from the new album, which both Billboard and Rolling Stone are saying is likely. High Hopes sounds like it could've fit on Wrecking Ball so if the sound of the new album is similar to WB that's fine with me, great album however hopefully something new is released as the first single and hopefully Dream Baby Dream is NOT on the album!! High Hopes is no We Take Care Of Our Own as a kick off single.

  12. A Good Day to Die Hard

    SO HORRIBLE!! Every critic was right and cant believe they are making another one. The first three were fun, even the fourth, which didn't feel like a Die Hard movie, wasn't too bad but this one...feels nothing like a Die Hard movie at all. The problem...they changed the John McClaine character too much. It feels like every other Bruce Willis action movie.

    This is 40

    The unofficial sequel to Knocked Up. Love this movie. Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, who played the same couple in Knocked Up, have such great chemistry and it's a Judd Apatow movie so usually it's a winner. Leslie Mann, Appatow's wife, is arguably the funniest female actress around today and Rudd...I love his brand of comedy. Oh and the two little kids, Apatow's real life daughters, steal every scene they are in. There is also a funny scene involving some Philadelphia Flyers players...i'm a huge Flyers fan!

  13. Listening to the stuff he did with Gary U.S. Bonds. Such amazing music and I would LOVE to hear a full album like that from Bruce. That music pretty much was Gary U.S. Bonds And The E Street Band. Bruce has played some stuff from those records live (Jole Blon) and Out Of Work was pretty much reworked and retitled Livin' In The Future.

    With Bruce covering a song like Higher And Higher it would be nice to hear a album of music inspired by songs by Jackie Wilson, Gary U.S. Bonds etc.
