  1. European premiere at London film festival 11th October. "Among the guests on the red carpet in London this year will be Bruce Springsteen, in the city for the European premiere of Western Stars, a performance of his 19th studio album." https://www.theguardian.com/film/2019/aug/29/white-men-still-make-decisions-film-industry-bfi-london-film-festival https://whatson.bfi.org.uk/lff/Online/default.asp?BOparam::WScontent::loadArticle::permalink=westernstars
  2. They also say orse in another British soap opera EastEnders. I think he just sings it that way for a laugh, if you don't like the music or the vocals then perhaps you should concentrate more on the brilliant lyrics.

  4. Down from 3 to 5 in the UK. Western Stars is only the 3rd album of his career to spend three weeks in the top 5. The other two were BITUSA (23 weeks in top 5 - 1st 3 weeks on chart 2-3-7) and Greatest Hits (11 weeks in top 5 - 1st 3 weeks on chart 1-3-4)
  5. Just found out today that a Jewel Box is a type of baseball stadium. They were built at the beginning of the 20th century and used during the golden age of baseball but most have now been demolished. The Yankees Stadium in New York was a Jewel Box and was demolished in 2010 around the same time that Giants Stadium (the inspiration for Wrecking Ball) was. I think this fits many of the themes of the album, nostalgia, old heroes, the sun setting on an era. Also makes me think about moonlight motel in a different way.
  6. I am reading Bruce's autobiography and I have got as far as 1972 where he writes about how much of an influence Dylan was when he started writing seriously and says that when his compass was spinning Bob pointed true north. There is a clear reference to Like a Rolling Stone in Hitch Hikin' could the song be a thankyou note to Dylan.
  7. Could the lightning bolt be a Ziggy Stardust reference to go with the "where are you now" lyric on The Wayfarer
