  1. That's about how I recall it - my dear tolerant wife has ALWAYS been an "early to bed" human being, rarely staying awake past 10 PM This night, she was dancing and singing about 3 1/2 hours past her bedtime, never once realizing how tired she was. At the start of the show, I was truly terrified she was going to run out of gas before midnight and I would end up missing most of the show. Not tonight, Bruce kept us all entertained and even the lovely "Miss Kelley" had some extra adrenaline to make it another 45 mins in the parking lot with a lot of "Bruce friends" who wanted to talk about what they just witnessed. We both slept in past noon later that morning - good memories
  2. Bruce still loves you Andrew, as do we Great night, good show which is noteworthy as much for the "non-show" stuff - how many shows have lightning, evacuations, start 3 hours late and end with birthday cake at 1:30 in the morning?
  3. The family of Peter Mayhew, with deep love and sadness, regrets to share the news that Peter has passed away. He left us the evening of April 30, 2019 with his family by his side in his North Texas home. Peter was the man behind the mask of Chewbacca in the original Star Wars trilogy, episode 3 of the prequels, and the New Trilogy. He fought his way back from being wheelchair-bound to stand tall and portray Chewbacca once more in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He also consulted on The Last Jedi in an attempt to teach his successor. He put his heart and soul into the role of Chewbacca and it showed in every frame of the films from his knock kneed running, firing his bowcaster from the hip, his bright blue eyes, down to each subtle movement of his head and mouth. But, to him, the Star Wars family meant so much more to him than a role in a film. The relationships that began then grew into the friends and family that he would love for decades to come. As the films released and became more well-known he had his eyes opened to the possibilities of what he could achieve with his role in the Star Wars universe. For more than 30 years Peter traveled all over the world spending time with his fans and friends. Peter developed lifelong friendships with the other cast members and his fans while on the convention circuit touching the lives of millions. As he realized over the years the impact he could have, he became heavily involved with the 501st legion, Wounded Warriors, Make-a-Wish, and other non-profit organizations. To this end, he established the Peter Mayhew Foundation, supporting everything from individuals and families in crisis situations to food and supplies for children of Venezuela during their recent road to freedom. He not only provided funds but became personally involved with each individual, family and cause he supported. As he grew older he continued to “soldier on” as he put it and was completely in his element around his fans and supporters. He grew great strength from the energy of his family, friends and the fans he knew and loved. He is survived by his wife Angie and three children. His kindness, generosity and care will live on in the Peter Mayhew Foundation with Angie taking the helm as his voice. There will be a memorial service for friends and family held on June 29th and in early December in Los Angeles there will be a memorial for fans set up with his family in attendance, personal effects, and collection at EmpireConLA. 
 For additional information, information on the memorials or to offer condolences email Rather than gifts and flowers the family asks that you consider donating to the foundation so that they can continue his efforts to help the community. You can donate at
  4. LOL Yup, I want to hear BTR phoned in one more time, who gives a damn what Bruce likes
  5. That tour was the most fun I have seen Bruce have while playing on stage. His rock shows are life changing, and I wouldn't miss any if I had the choice and the budget. But they seem to challenge you, raise you up, lower you back down - inspire and cause you to think differently. I am sure that's his intent. But the Sessions Band was a FUN show for the crowd and the musicians. They are sing-a-long pieces, meant to engage the crowd to join. One need not be a Springsteen fan before the show to have a great time during the show. Watch Live in Dublin and watch Bruce smile - you will see he loves to reach the audience in that way. I brought friends who only knew "BIUSA Bruce" to a Sessions show and they still talk about it 10+ years later. My wife has seen 40+ shows I would guess, all the tours since 1987 when we got married. She enjoys them, tolerates my craziness and doesn't really like the acoustic stuff (my favorite) really enjoys the rock shows, but she ADORED the Sessions shows and would probably go with me to see 5 more in a row if the opportunity presented itself. If he decides to take the "Sessions" idea back on the road, I'm grabbing my ticket and suitcase.......
  6. The Bruce machine reads what Twitter and other forums have to say - and addressed this one rather quickly
  7. Actually Nils record is out today - Bruce dropped a single, but it's a few weeks for his. If I remember correctly, Stevie's next release is in May All close, but not all 3 on the same day
  8. I think Amy is mostly wishing they had the social media reach that Bruce has, in order to promote Nils new record. Of course, almost any musician would like that reach, even Little Steven makes mention that it's hard marketing his music as well.
  9. He also has perfected the Scatter Strategy, jumping around from category to category to frustrate his opponents. You get an "Opera" question right and take the same category, he will jump away from it as soon as he can, just to disrupt your rhythm. His strategy to also grab the biggest dollar clues first gives him a bigger "stack" to gamble with if/when he hits the daily double. If he doesn't shoot himself in the foot, it will take a wild player to hit true daily doubles a couple of times to have a chance to beat him straight up
  10. If you haven't heard it, there are suggestions on how to connect to Estreet radio and hear it there. You can keep checking YouTube and see if one stays up long enough. Tomorrow morning, Bruce's official site will have the music video posted, we will link to that when available But please, don't ask here for someone to share a link for you - what you do privately isn't my concern, but a public post is going to be deleted
  11. Not feeling attacked here, but simply this music is owned by the record company and Bruce While they are playing it on EStreet radio, that is obviously with official permission. Posting it on YouTube, here and other sites is happening without official permission and apparently they don't want that to happen and are taking steps to have those other sources taken down - we just prefer to do it now, without an official "Cease and Desist" order
  12. I'm not nearly as powerful as JoanFontaine I don't mind you or anyone asking, that's not "fighting city hall" as we are all on the same team Frankly, we have no control on what is available on YouTube - if one of the postings there works, feel free to link it, but those are being taken down as quickly as posted - So, when some other site takes the risk of "posting" the music, that's not the same as us hosting the source link It's a fine line, but it's a legal one.
  13. You guys know I love ya, but what happens everywhere else on the internet isn't going to be our responsibility. I understand no one means harm, and everyone is excited about it. I am also seeing Bruce Inc is taking down YouTube postings of the song almost as fast as people are posting it - I am going to read into that and discern that this music is intended to be sold tomorrow and on album release day - and that the record company and Bruce's people are protecting it.
