Springsteen is my wife's FAVORITE artist of all time...she missed the Beatles since she's so young (robbing the cradle is not against the law in Mississippi
). She saw him in the late 70's when his concerts were over 4 hours long...when we saw him in New Orleans (pre-Katrina) he had cut the concerts down to a little over three hours and I was still worn slap out.
The thing I didn't like about the band was his drummer (sound familiar...see George Martin circa 1962). Max Weinberg's extremely heavy base will bruise your chest after a good three hour pounding and it was the same on every single up beat tune. Nils and Little Stevie are cool as is the extra large Clarence on Sax (he might not be that big because everyone else in the band is so tiny
I hate to tell Bruce this fact but he's got himself a "Yoko" with his wife Patti...She cannot sing and she's not something I care to look at...and I'm a complete sucker for redheads...you may check out my profile for verification
