  1. That’s fine. I wasn’t trying to have this argument with you again. I was just tell you no one needs to have the song explained to them. That comes across as quite condescending.
  2. And rightly so. There’s no “but” after “no means no”. Oh, and Rizla, I don't think anyone here needs to have the song explained to them.
  3. I think that, because she knows my starting point, she’s very appreciative of whatever little I deliver.
  4. Barcelona 2002. I ended up on a DVD. Drove for a day, slept outside and ran like crazy to be in the front. I remember how I felt when I first saw him, I remember how I felt when Clarence played his first solo of the night (on Prove It), I remember having a Thunder Road as a real encore after I’d lost all hope I’d get it (and sobbing like a baby), I remember the exhilaration of being there and I remember having a series of cramps in my legs for all the exercise and dehydration. My other first time... Boy, what a trainwreck... Luckily, she became my wife.
  5. American Beauty, on the other hand, is weird and pretty unlistenable.
  6. Harry’s Place is kind of weird. I like it, though.
  7. Disc 4 of Tracks has so many beautiful songs! That surely is one of them. Leavin’ Train, Seven Angela and Trouble in Paradise are pretty terrible, but all the others are, to my ears, really great. I wish Bruce had made some different choices in the first half of the 90’s...
  8. I disagree. I think the studio version is vastly superior and, ironically, much more furious. And that guitar solo does absolutely nothing for me.
  9. Unfortunately. I think Bruce singing Search and Destroy would be less of a stretch than Royals, Stayin’ Alive or Sociedade Alternativa.
  10. Preferences are preferences. But to put HT and LT together because they were released together is just lazy. They’re very different albums and, in my opinion, one of them vastly superior to the other. Also, Tom Joad is one of Bruce’s best albums and I’ll stand on a pile of BitUSA records in my cowboy boots and say that.
