Bruce Springsteen to play 2009 Superbowl halftime show

Phil Collins told Playboy in 1986, “I’ve always liked the idea of Springsteen – everyman’s music for every-man, you know; it captures the imagina-tion of the workingman. Chuck Berry did the same thing. I don’t know that much about Springsteen’s older songs, but I like what he stands for. Born in the U.S.A. is just fantastic. It has great atmosphere and it’s a great song.”
