Bruce Springsteen’s epic Graceland story
October 12th, 2019 under Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Presley, Graham Norton. [ Comments: none ]


Back in 1975, Bruce Springsteen released a little album called Born to Run and the songs off of it were running up the charts. He went from unknown to superstar with that record and it gave the young singer the balls to do things he normally would never have done.

For example, yesterday when he was on The Graham Norton Show, he shared a story about a trip he will never forget. He and the band went to Nashville and they were hungry. He got in the cab with Steven Van Zandt and asked for a place to eat. The driver suggested a place near Graceland.

When they got to Elvis Presley’s home, he told the driver to stop. He got out, jumped the wall and proceeded to walk up to the door. Just as he was about to knock, he was stopped by security.

The guard wanted to know if there was anything he could help him with. That is when The Boss, asked if The King was home. He was not there because he was in Vegas.

Then Springsteen asked if he could give a message to his idol. He said to the security guard, “Can you tell him, I don’t generally like to do this but, Bruce Springsteen was here.” Then he continued with, “He might not know who that is, but I was just on the cover of Time and Newsweek.”

With that, he was on his way. He never met Elvis before he died in 1977, so he does not know if got the message. I’d like to think that he did. Not as much as Bruce though.

While he doesn’t have that awesome story of meeting The King, maybe it is better. They say never meet your idols for reason…

Bruce Springsteen brings some Sunshine into our lives
April 26th, 2019 under Bruce Springsteen. [ Comments: none ]


Bruce Springsteen has a new album coming out on June 14th and today he released the first single from Western Stars. Hello Sunshine sounds a lot like something that would have been on the Born in the USA album mixed with some Johnny Cash. The type of song you would hear on a juke bar at a dark bar made of wood that mostly sells beer. Which means it is very him and because of that I am sure his fans are loving every note.

If this single is any hint of what the album is going to be like, I expect him to get a lot of Grammy noms for it and even some wins. Especially since the Boss describes the record as, “This record is a return to my solo recordings featuring character driven songs and sweeping, cinematic orchestral arrangements. It’s a jewel box of a record.” Sounds like his Broadway run had a big influence on his new songs.

Bruce Springsteen is taking a year off from touring
December 5th, 2018 under Bruce Springsteen. [ Comments: none ]


Bruce Springsteen has spent the better part of the year on Broadway doing a one-man show of his music and he needs a break. Yesterday, he broke the news that he will not be touring with the E Street Band in 2019, but he will be working on new music instead.

You cannot blame him for wanting to take a year off, he has earned it. Plus, you know he will come back stronger than ever. He always does.

Who is the sexier bald man: Bruce Willis or Michael Chiklis?
September 17th, 2018 under Better than..., Bruce Springsteen, Michael Chiklis. [ Comments: none ]


Bruce Willis and Michael Chiklis are filming 10 Minutes Gone in Ohio and the latter shared a photo of the two chrome tops. Normally, I do not find bald men good looking, but I cannot stop staring at these two very sexy men. So much so, I cannot decide who is hotter. Can you?

Springsteen on Broadway is coming to Netflix
July 18th, 2018 under Bruce Springsteen, Netflix. [ Comments: none ]


Bruce Springsteen is the hottest ticket on Broadway, so hot you cannot even get tickets to the show. But on December 15th, as he ends his sold-out run on the Great White Way, the show will live on, on the World Wide Web. Translation. Springsteen on Broadway will be coming to Netflix the same day the curtain goes down.

The show is based on his autobiography Born to Run and features The Boss with just his guitar, a piano, very personal stories and his wife Patti Scialfa.

I think out of all of the coops that Netflix has done since its inception, this might be their biggest. Bandana out of my back pocket to them.
