the River in full is an incredible feat.... dude is basically going to re learn over a dozen songs in a few days.

Not a huge fan but still give the man major props...

Pretty cool. "New York City Serenade" is one of my favorite Bruce songs.

I am going on Sunday and could not be happier! One of my alltime favorite albums. I have already seen Born To Run & Born In The USA. And to all of you idiot losers who post MEH for everything, stay home and listen to your Animal Collective cd's while we have a blast!

Also, Elisa. Try using punctuation. It may or may not help you. I think you are beyond help though

11:04- I was at the Darkness show. I like Bruce Springsteen. I also listen to Animal Collective. Your post is why readers of this site think Bruce fans are idiots.

the Wild, the Innocent, and the mEh Street Shuffle

11:19-- about 7-8 River songs are in fairly frequent rotation (though only 3-4 recently) the album has 18(?). . . . that's a lot to bone up on. Of course, it's always been a trait of the band that can pull out just about anything . . .

I'm dying that I turned down a below face price ticket just two days ago. . .

Hey 9:38

I know. Thanks. That is not what I was questioning. So doing his job means that he quickly got over the death of someone in his family? No. I think it means he has a job and should probably do it regardless. There's only so much time a musician like Bruce Springsteen can take off...

"There's only so much time a musician like Bruce Springsteen can take off..."

yeah he's so broke. he could do whatever the fuck he wants. i always find it amazing when everyones so devasted but yet the show must go on if it affects the beloved pocketbook. i think the who cancelled one show after entwistle's death mid tour. find a replacement, cue video tribute and one less person to pay

Posted by Anonymous | November 4, 2009 12:40 PM

dude, how much time would you take off of work after your cousin died? you expect him to cancel his tour, an operation that employs hundreds of people and entertains hundreds of thousands of people? come on, get real.
