Bruce Springsteen
The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put \x34Born in the U.S.A.\x34 or \x34The River\x34 down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, let¹s face it, the man rocks.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band kick off their Australian tour tonight, or tomorrow, depending on which hemisphere you’re in — setlist watchers here in the U.S. are going to have to stay up pretty late or get up pretty early if they want the scoop in real time. You can check out what time it is in Australia here, mate.



And don’t worry: You can stop by here at Blogness around the start of your workday after each concert to see what got played and whether or not any of the songs have a particularly Australian flavor. (A Peter Allen cover? A full-band “Let’s Get Physical“? Could happen.)



Meanwhile, in the absence of any real Springsteen news (hello, U.S dates?), Springsteen mentions in the media have been ranging from the ridiculous to the sublime. You can decide for yourself where the picture above fits into that range. (Thanks to @mpslater, I think.)



The latest Bruce news from around the Web:





Finally, I have no idea what the story is behind this picture (found here), but it’s AWE-SOME! (Even if the needle’s not on the record.)
