The Official January 20th Part 17 Bruce’s farm SiriusXM SetlistVision thread

Warren Zevon is one artist I completely disregarded until I bothered to actually listen to some of his stuff and was blown away. Keep Me in Your Heart is a song that has dropped me to my knees, sobbing more than one time. Such a great songwriter in a different way than Bruce. 
I wonder which Zevon song he’ll play?

In 1979, thanks to Werewolves of London, Warren Zevon was somewhat famous in Australia.   Bruce Springsteen was almost unheard of.  I was 14, and my older sister's husband had the Excitable Boy album, which I used to nearly wear out when I went over there.   I went out and bought his earlier self-titled album and loved that even more.   My voracious reading of the cover notes lead me to other artists too, like Jackson Browne and David Lindley.

Some time in early 1980 I bought Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School as soon as it appeared in the record store.    Reading the cover notes I straight away noticed something unusual for Warren - a co-writing credit for Jeannie Needs a Shooter.   The name Bruce Springsteen seemed vaguely familiar, and the name of the song had a whimsical quality about it I liked.    Later that year Australia got it's first commercial FM radio stations... and not long after that The River was released, and they played the title track... "that's that guy!!" I thought.     A week later I had my copy of The River, and never looked back.    Bruce didn't get much more airplay here until Born in the USA... and by that time I was 19, had discovered girls, and was far less of a music geek.   Without Warren I would've missed 4 years of Bruce fandom, and would probably only have been a casual fan.   Thanks Warren

You called it a year ago Lucinda, and thankfully you were quite correct : -

YOU ARE A MAN WITHOUT TRUTH
A MAN OF GREED, A MAN OF HATE
A MAN OF ENVY AND DOUBT
YOU'RE A MAN WITHOUT A SOUL

ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD
WILL NEVER FILL THAT HOLE
YOU'RE A MAN BOUGHT AND SOLD
YOU'RE A MAN WITHOUT A SOUL

YOU BRING NOTHING GOOD TO THIS WORLD
BEYOND A WEB OF CHEATING AND STEALING
YOU HIDE BEHIND YOUR WALL OF LIES
BUT IT'S COMING DOWN, YEAH, IT'S COMING DOWN

YOU'RE A MAN WITHOUT SHAME
WITHOUT DIGNITY AND GRACE
NO WAY TO SAVE FACE
YOU'RE A MAN WITHOUT A SOUL

HOW DO YOU THINK THIS STORY ENDS
IT'S NOT A MATTER OF HOW
IT'S JUST A MATTER OF WHEN
CAUSE IT'S COMING DOWN, YEAH IT'S COMING DOWN

THERE'S A DARKNESS ALL AROUND YOU
TO COVER ALL YOU'RE HIDING
THERE'S NO LIGHT IN YOUR EYES
YOU'RE A MAN WITHOUT A SOUL

NOW THE EXITS WILL BE CLOSING
A SAD LIFE WILL BE EXPOSED
NO DEALER AND NO DEALS
CAUSE YOU'RE A MAN WITHOUT A SOUL

HOW DO YOU THINK THIS STORY ENDS
IT'S NOT A MATTER OF HOW
IT'S JUST A MATTER OF WHEN
CAUSE IT'S COMING DOWN, YEAH IT'S COMING DOWN

YEAH, IT'S COMING DOWN
YEAH, IT'S COMING DOWN
YEAH, IT'S COMING DOWN
YEAH, IT'S COMING DOWN
YEAH, IT'S COMING DOWN
YEAH, IT'S COMING DOWN
YEAH, IT'S COMING DOWN

Ah, it makes more sense now with the previous paragraphs.  I thought it would be very unlike Bruce (and very un-Catholic!) to just start by saying 'Don't waste your compassion on those who do not deserve it'. His previous sentences put it into context a little more!

Is that the most he's ever said in public about you-know-who? I reckon so.

It is. My typing speed limited me to the following:

That doesn't mean he doesn't like his conservative leaning fans 

His own mom may have possibly voted for Sen McCain (or Mit Romney?)

And he did say in a New Yorker interview a while ago he did understand why the white working class might vote to the right

John McCain and Mitt Romney are not conservative, just because they are Republican's!

I really really really liked John McCain 

45 had no understanding that free trade is a conservative policy

McCain and Romney were excellent candidates for president, and were excellent political leaders

My heart just broke for the way 45 treated Sen McCain 

That was my deal breaker

That was the nail in the coffin, he already pissed me off so much, 1 you don't treat a vet like that 2. neither to a PoW.

The fact that he made fun of the reporter with disabilities infuriated me, I too have a disability it's not too visible (hearing loss w/ a hearing aid) but imagine being made fun of over something you cannot control.
