  1. I'm sure it'll be a snoozefest like Bruce's book. No blood will be shed, no secrets revealed.
  2. I remember the days when I used to pay $75 for a three-album bootleg set of a live show. Of varying sound quality. I've had no compunction with putting hard-earned money in a bootleggers hand over the years, so I really can't balk at financing Bruceco for putting out better quality shows. I'll pay for this set because I haven't bought any of the previous 78 releases and this is a nice package deal. I was there in '78, and the magic was real.
  3. The three creepiest/scariest songs that come to my mind are: Frankie Teardrop-Suicide Heroin-Velvet Underground The End-The Doors. If you ever have unwanted guests at your house, throw one of those tunes on and you're sure to scare them off. The Suicide album is tremendous, though.
  4. That pre-show thing was dreadful. As far as the live concert is concerned, all I can say is FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC. I can't wait to delve into the Sign 0' The Times boxset.
  5. That main riff sounds like something from XTC.
  6. I listened to it. For point of reference. It didn't cost me a thing.
  7. Back in Black for me. I love that drum riff. When I first heard You Shook Me All Night Long on the radio I thought it was Bob Seger.
  8. 1984 Atlantic City into Open All Night. The best part of being a Bruce fan.
  9. I'm really looking forward to this release, especially the live material and the unreleased songs. That New Years Eve show is fantastic. There's been video of it floating around for years.
  10. I remember at one time NFL Films was preparing a Bruce Springsteen video home release, and were involved with editing some of the video shot from the BITUSA tour crew, mostly the 1985 stadium tour dates, which went out on a video feed to each stadium's setup. I found a link that describes something along those lines, although it doesn't tell us exactly why NFL Films was involved, or who would actually own that footage. I believe that NFL Films operates out of South Jersey, so perhaps their proximity to Bruceco is the reason they were involved. https://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/fl-xp

    Golfer Jack Nicklaus once said that he watched the 1973 Belmont Stakes race alone at home on the television. When Secretariat pulled around the last turn for home Nicklaus said that he stood up in his living room and applauded him.

    Here's what horse breeder Seth Hancock was quoted as saying when Secretariat was nearing death: "You want to know who Secretariat is in human terms? Just imagine the greatest athlete in the world. The greatest. Now make him six-foot-three, the perfect height. Make him real intelligent and kind. And on top of that, make him the best-lookin' guy ever to come down the pike. He was all those things as a horse. He isn't even a horse anymore. He's a legend."
  13. I think the stately released studio version is best.
  14. Wait a minute. Jon Landau is on the RRHOF nominating committee, and Jon Landau was voted into the RRHOF? Time to close up shop, boys.
  15. Janet Jackson is in too? Time to close up shop, boys.
  16. Whitney Houston is voted into the RRHOF? Time to close up shop, boys.
  17. The Police don't even like Sting. Especially Andy Summers. https://dangerousminds.net/comments/sting_puff_daddy_andy_summers_and_the_case_of_the_misplaced_bajillion_dolla
  18. That HOF class is so weak that I'd probably break down and vote for the steroid users, Bonds and Clemens. And since Curt Schilling never killed anyone with rhetoric, I'd probably vote him in too. The outfield walls in Philadelphia tell me that Bobby Abreu is NOT a HOF'er. They also consider him to be something of a snob, since he never introduced himself to them.
