Amen, Bruce...Amen...

He's made one helluva tour guide through my life...

And mine. I hope he keeps on indefinitely, like Bob Dylan has.From my conversations with other music fans it seems the Seeger album has revived a lot of older people's interest in Bruce. They don't relate to the hardcore stripped-down folk of "Nebraska" or "Tom Joad" or "Devils & Dust" (I think they're brilliant),but the upbeat multi-instrumental approach has really got people buzzing on the idea of Springsteen as a relevant artist again. When the next self-penned studio album comes out, they will be paying rapt attention.

There's no doubt Bruce will be writing til the end...It's been his best friend and his salvation...that's what makes us all say, "phew* There's hope for me yet..."
His need to write is equal to his need for air...Take away one, you might as well take away the other...
His driven soul that sets him apart from everyone else reminds me of Johnny Cash...another man I hold in high regard...
