  1. Wenner stepped down in 2019. Not to see he doesn't still have influence. Zevon will get in eventually just like Carol King or Tina Turner who should have already been in. I don't really have issue with Jayz or NWA getting in. Generes spin into Genres into Genres. Sure it says Rock and Roll but we've got Blues, Doo Woo, R&B, Soul etc. It's also tentacles of a term made by a guy decades ago.
  2. Is the one where Liam Neeeson plays the guy who has someone after him or set him up, or something has happened to him or his family and he has to avenge them or figure out who set him up?
  3. Has anyone actually gotten a traffic ticket. Its all about pleading , bargaining. People getting ticketed for driving 110 MPH then pleading down to a sign violation. The whole system is a sham. This is absolutely no different. One difference here is he was ticketed for a violation that didn't meet the standard of said violation.
  4. I've listened to the first two episodes. They are terrific. If you are not going to listen due to "politics" you will be missing great insight and stories about life, his career, some terrific insight into Clarence and Bruce relationship and race. There is discussion about how their experiences and life have differed or are similar to the topics discussed. Its less "political: then you might assume. If you assume and therefore don't listen you are missing out.
  5. Im pissed I financed western stars over a 60 month term. Should have it paid off in 2024
  6. Its ad so much that it was paid for by a company to play on TV. I think the point some are making and I am on that team is the Super Bowl "Ad" generally is a different animal that your normal spot. Alot of companies use that spot for a message or a tribute, a more serious tone. Ala the Toyota Commercial about the Olympic Swimmer. Did you even remember or know it was a Toyota spot. In other words the "Ad' is not about the product in the very least. He never mentions the product, highlights any model jeep, any feature set, any price point, sale etc. Its basically a message sponsored by Jeep and spoken by Bruce Springsteen. Now does that make any agree or disagree with the message, that's another argument. BTW some have said it would have been more effective suing some "normal" person. Maybe but nobody would be talking about it today like they are now, and not just here.
  7. We are all now safer today from having to hear Gloria by Laura Brannigan and some of the worst song choices by a President ever again.
  8. Lennon has always been an interesting case study in my own personal musical tastes. I cant ignore the genius of the man. There is quite a bit of his solo stuff I can live without. Then there are just absolute gems as well. He is the same category with a Dylan, Bowie type. Those that saw music as art and an experiment as well. Trying different things, sounds, noise etc. Some for me worked and some just did not. Its just a personal taste thing. As a person I also found him to be kind of jerky in some ways. At the same time I was always amazed that a man who came out of the Beatles who had zero room to breathe, was so out and accessible in NY. Out in streets , freely walking amongst the masses. I think NYC gave him his comfort and freedom later on, which maybe exercised some of his demons. The irony was that accessibility became part of the story of his death. As Dan said the sad part was i his renewed drive in making music and his comfort in his own skin, cut short. The things he stood for still ring very true today. He is in a handful of folks I wonder what the world would be like if he were still here. Those that had an impact on culture, art and the way people listened and lived their lives. Princess Diana is in that category. Those people looked at for some cultural and political guidance and voice. 40 years ago is hard to believe.
  9. https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/521513-trump-on-if-biden-wins-maybe-ill-have-to-leave-the-country?fbclid=IwAR0pE1PNYNmoXj0jLxajDEiPLzvbPB0iBt4LUyqEKXtmT_mIHUAtEfnXdWI Hahahahaha Shut up and golf.
  10. Of course she is lying. Its all about Trump, but she is wrapping it nicely in a bow labeled this isn't about Trump. Which is only available at the Maga website under Trump bows. Sorry to hijack the thread, carry on.
  11. The video is about Pennsylvania, not Missouri or Illinois. It's a well done political ad, using a remarkably emotional song. That those here who support Trump dont like it , is so unsurprising. Can you name a anti Trump Ad you do like. It uses actual residents which is always most effective in an a political ad. It's not all about Covid btw. Is he to blame for Covid, no. Is he on the top of the list for response and handling, you bet. He still is.still downplaying now, like he said in his taped interview. The ad is effective since people are talking about. If you dont like it because you like Trump, or because you love Bruce and dislike his use of his song, well as someone recently said "it is what it is".
  12. The remake of American Pie by Madonna always scares the crap out of me.
  13. This is fandom at its finest. You dont have to like it or love it or hate it. No rules to music. It hits you or it doesnt. No need to be angry if you like it and someone doesnt. The only I know about music is I'M always right about the things I like.
  14. Nice little diddy's. Musically E Steet. Lyrics have some classic bruce themed lines. Letter to You. Who? First impression, a letter to himself. But could be interpreted in many ways.
  15. Wow not even officially announced and people are bitching. Gotta love it.
  16. If it was about Trump it would be Strongly Worded Letter to You
