  1. So sad, still remember seeing the Stones live for the first time in the late 90s. For me, the Stones were a gateway to discover Bruce and so many other great artists. Always loved his unflappable nature and seemingly being completely non-plussed about being part of the Stones! They won't be the same without him.
  2. All episodes here: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/1ciMluJl0QVPZxUsniaNdSQiUcPxleL7s
  3. OK, I shouldn't have used the words "through these tough times". All I'm saying is, having a daily drink doesn't mean he's dependent on alcohol or is using it to treat depression. It's possible to have a drink because you enjoy it, and for no other reason than that.
  4. A lot of jumping to conclusions on this thread! Especially with regard to him using excessive alcohol consumption to treat his depression! He's said before on his radio show that he enjoys a drink in the evening - a small daily pleasure to get through these tough times. That doesn't mean he gets absolutely blasted every day because he's depressed! It is possible to have a drink just because you enjoy having one - this is from someone who rarely drinks. If he was really only at a quarter of the legal limit, then really it's a non-story. I'm not defending drink driving but I'm sure many of us here have all driven after having a drink (I'm talking about 1 or 2 drinks, not several). That doesn't make it right. But we're all human, even Bruce.
  5. Those were great days. I think I did O2, Paris and Oslo all on the same run. Oh to be 27 again!
  6. Great stuff, thanks for posting. Long Walk Home particularly poignant at this moment in time, you could see it in his eyes in the verse about the courthouse.
  7. Loving the new album - classic E Street sound. Powerful too. Also watched the film 3 times now - it's simply a wonderful and thought provoking watch on life and death. Song for Orphans is one of the best tracks I've heard for a long time, love the Dylan influence. SVZ licks on this track could have been lifted off Blonde on Blonde. And I love the smile that Bruce and Steve share during the recording of this song. Of the newer tracks, think my favourite is Burnin Train. Can't wait to hear that one live.
  8. I would agree that is the best interview I've ever seen with him. Zane Lowe did an amazing job with such thoughtful reflections. Such a refreshing change to not just hear the same old questions. Seemed to bring out so much in Bruce. Also loved the Nebraska moment and how good he looks.
  9. Yeah and I noticed the presenter wasn't as enthusiastic about that answer as she was about the others he gave
  10. Yeah I was impatient. Worth the wait though, words of wisdom as always.
  11. I agree. The lyrics make sense in that respect. Actually made me quite emotional watching the video with this in mind. He definitely seems to be very aware of his own mortality and his legacy.
  12. Yeah sorry, my musical knowledge isn't what it should be. I just mean the bit at the end where he goes up on "I'm going to tear it down and throw it away". Just love that bit.
  13. I'm in the SVZ camp when it comes to Crush on You but I do love a bit of Ramrod, especially live.
  14. Yeah that's a great song. The key change at the end is just brilliant!
  15. What's the one song you didn't appreciate or "get" and then all of a sudden, you began to realise what an incredible piece of art it is? For me, at the moment, it's The Time That Never Was. I didn't listen to the The Ties That Bind collection much when it was first released on the box set, but have been listening to it loads recently. Really some amazing "unreleased" songs on here (Stray Bullet is another). But at the moment, I just have The Time That Never Was on repeat! Love Max's drum beat, Bruce's wailing, the lyrics. It uplifts me and makes me sad at the same time. And how Loose Ends never made it to the official River studio album still remains the greatest mystery to me!
  16. Just looking at nugs further, do I need to pay the monthly nugs subscription fee as well as pay for each download in order to be able to stream on sonos?
  17. Great, thank you. I can see Nugs now in the list of services on the Sonos app.
  18. Yet to purchase any archive releases, but going to start doing so. I'm a Spotify subscriber and I cast it to sonos speakers. What's the best way to get these archive releases cast to sonos?
  19. Anyone got a link to listen to the show in the UK? I had a link that worked for vol 3 and 4 but doesn't seem to be working now.
