Rick Springfield shares a really neat Elvis Presley story!
January 18th, 2018 under Bruce Springsteen, Harry Connick Jr. [ Comments: none ]


Rick Springfield might sing Don’t Talk to Strangers, but thankfully Elvis Presley did not believe that. The never ageing rocker shared a story about meeting The King to Harry Connick Jr yesterday on the crooner’s daytime talk show.

Back in 1971 when Springfield was flying back to Australia, they had a stopover in Hawaii and Elvis boarded the plane. Of course, Elvis the Pelvis sat in first class, and Rick, back then, sat in the cheap seats. Towards the end of their flight, Presley got up, walked to the back of the plane and signed autographs and took pictures with all of the passengers on the plane. Which is totally awesome that someone as famous (was their anyone more popular than him) as The King of Rock’n’Roll would do that, while most of today’s celebrities cannot talk to the commoners.

Back to Springfield, at the time he was managed by the same man who directed Elvis’ 1968 special and the two men bonded over that. What a really swell encounter to share with everyone and anyone. I would start every conversation with that if that happened to me.

When it comes to Elvis, this story makes me love him even more. Some of the other actors I have heard stories about like this are Henry Winkler and Jerry O’Connell, the latter I witness for myself at the Jimmy Kimmel Live green room.

An ’80s girl’s wet dream, Bryan Adams and Bruce Springsteen!
October 2nd, 2017 under Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams, Wet dream. [ Comments: none ]

A post shared by Bryan Adams (@bryanadams) on


Back on the ’80s, two of the biggest rockers were Bryan Adams and Bruce Springsteen. Now 30 years later, the two of them performed at the Invictus Games in Toronto. Before they went on stage together to sing the Canadian’s hit Cuts Like a Knife, they practiced it backstage.

Thankfully, someone got their camera out and phonecorded it for all us of to enjoy their raw voices harmonizing as one. Their duet does anything but cut like a knife, although you can feel it in your soul.

BTW they might be old enough to live in a retirement community, but there are still a lot of women who would like to be dancing in the dark with them in bedroom! Me being one them. Seriously, they get better with age!

Some people turn 67 and their glory days are behind them, and then there is Bruce Springsteen. He is still on fire and dancing in the dark.
That is now, and that precious photo is of him way back when he just born to run. Run away with our hearts for so many decades and counting.

The Boss honors Prince!
April 24th, 2016 under Bruce Springsteen. [ Comments: none ]


Back in the mid-’80s, two of the biggest albums were Prince’s Purple Rain and Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the USA. Yesterday at The Boss’ Brooklyn show, he honored the legendary singer who passed away on Thursday by singing Purple Rain. It is a rendition that not only makes the ’80s proud, it makes today beam with joy.

Will Bruce Springsteen be Born to Run from NJ after this?
January 15th, 2014 under Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Fallon. [ Comments: 1 ]


Bruce Springsteen was the only guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon yesterday and the NBC late night host and The Boss reworked his classic tune Born to Run as an ode to NJ Governor Chris Christie’s recent woes. Not that he isn’t losing any weight, but some of his aides threw their weight to shut down lanes on the Jersey side of the George Washington Bridge.
So sit back and enjoy Fallon and Springstten’s Gov. Christie Traffic Jam and hope that the Gov. does too. Because if not, Jon Bon Jovi will have Jersey all to himself.
