It certainly couldn't have helped that Crosby said Neil left his wife for a "purely poisonous predator" (i.e. Daryl Hannah)...

Well this part was missing.  I had thought of her but then thought he had something pre-Peggy days.

Sorry man that's just a bizarre post it both stands alone as a great ballad, but also melts into that album beautifully 

Hello Sunshine is not a great ballad.

Well I too really loved the song from the first listen, without the context of the album.  Same with Miracle.  

But I wouldn’t say Lampi’s post is ‘bizarre.’  

If he (or anyone) didn’t care for it (or any other song on WS) at first, but liked it more after hearing it within the context of the album, and/or after seeing the film, that’s perfectly understandable IMO.

While I completely understand your earlier post, I disagree with you here.  I personally think it’s a great song.

I think The Boss is ready for a Rick Rubin record... 

Yes.

Or Daniel Lanois, T-Bone Burnett (don't know if both men still produce albums BTW).

Until Bruce officially says there is nothing happening in 2020 (which they have always done before) then I am still optimistic we will see something this year on the album and tour front.

At least it is reasonable to expect a sort of retro-spective release in 2020; BUSA Box, Nebraska re-release, Tracks 2, or something else.

Maybe a new album without a tour.

What can Rubin do that Aniello can't?

Get Bruce out of his comfort zone, something fresh and new.

Brendan O'Brien and Aniello were that too when they started working with Bruce- and Aniello maybe still is (which means the answer to your question could be: maybe nothing).

Step away from Pro Tools once an hour?
Performances and bravery re. how the ageing process is affecting the artist are where it's at for Bruce at this time (see Broadway, Western Stars film etc.).

It's purely around the Darlyl Hannah comments. Neil had a lot of love for Crosby prior and was actually pivotal in getting him clean.

Totally agree with the final sentence. It’s where he is in his life and I’ve always preferred his work when he’s looking inwards more. It will be a devastating journey if he goes down that road.

That said, I’m fully signed up Ron fanboy.

If -and that's a big if- Big B decides to tour and make use of Nils Lofgren's services, the latter will be there. The man apparently needs the money. And if not...it is not like Nils is in any way essential for an ESB show or its sound. Bruce can play without Danny, Clarence and even Steve. Think Nils is really gonna be a decisive factor?

That said, once again, I believe and I hope Bruce goes on tour when he has a record he stands behind.

I really have little desire to see the ESB again at this point, but if they do come out again, please let it be behind a really good, cohesive album, not some alibi for touring...

Maybe not, but Nils going out with Crazy Horse says no ESB tour (unless Bruce lied to him again). And Yes losing the best guitarist would be big.

Exactly this.

I’d love a non E Street tour. Preferably with some form of band this time around.

He didn't say in the film what he said, but that is nasty what was quoted.  I'd be pissed too.

You say the weirdest things.  Is that really what people want?  A WS tour?  You don't see the numerous comments with respect to Bruce being old and should not waste anymore time without the E Streeters?

I honestly couldn't care less about hearing Badlands right now with the same old gang, gimme some Seeger folk and let it rock.

From what I’ve seen on Twitter and various comments on E Street Radio, as well as from lots of comments on here... yeah, that would be great.  For most of us.  Some of course would have a collective fit.  

Personally I’d love a tour w/ the ESB (def including Nils), with or without a new ESB type album; along with local orchestras to play lots of WS stuff as well.  

While I DO need to hear Badlands again, if he chooses not to do a lot of the ‘standards,’ fine by me.  

I just wanna be wherever Bruce and whatever kind of band he puts together is...
