Artists are defined by two central fundamentals: their songs and concerts. For years, concerts were used as promotional tools to sell records, bring awareness to the act and hopefully sell a few t-shirts. Little money was made and it was more or less a brief glimpse at their favorite artists in the flesh. When the Beatles played Shea Stadium in 1965, they played a mere 29-minutes. As the sixties progressed, the Grateful Dead appeared and within a few years, Led Zeppelin took concerts to new heights with festival grooviness and flashing arena-rock presence. For bands like the Dead and Zeppelin,...

Bruce Springsteen is just purely amazing. I know some people might not agree with that and fair enough, that's their opinion but the music he has made has influenced so many around the world and helped them overcome certain issues that they face. He cares so much about his music and his family and this is clearly shown in the way he performs when he is on stage. Like Jon Stewart said when he was being honoured - "Bruce Springsteen empties the tank. He empties it for his family, for his country and for his music." This is so true. He has helped out many countries around the world including Haiti...

Bruce Springsteen in my view is one of the most inspirational people in the world. His music is so poetic and all of his songs always have a message. He is devoted to his music and his family but also he is devoted to the world and helping countries and people that are less fortunate than him for example all his help with Haiti was just fantastic! I just am so inspired by his music but him especially - I am one huge fan of his. His music makes me happier when I'm having a good day and when I am having a bad day, his music just lifts my mood and makes me extremely happy. I just think he is seriously one of the most inspirational people in the world.

As one of his quotes goes - "You've got to learn to live with what you can't rise above." I live by this quote everyday and I think it is just so true, he is just a deeply inspired man and he is absolutely amazing :)

How amazing it is going to be to have a great legend like Brice Springsteen and the Gang play at this Historical place like Fenway Park!
This year marked the 100th anniversary of celebration of Fenway Park, so what a better way than to help keep this monotonous year going than by have a legend like Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band play at Fenway Park!

New Single Released 12/12
New Single Released 12/12

The Stairwell Sisters - San Francisco's all-gal old-time teardown - release a Springsteen single - Youngstown - a gorgeous rendition on fiddle, banjo, guitar, bass and Hawaiian slide. The Stairwell Sisters chose Youngstown from a list of songs to learn for a live presentation of Howard Zinn & Anthony Arnove's Voices of A Peoples' History, 2009. It is a fantastic banjo tune, and tells a story familiar to fans of Southern old-time music, and working people everywhere. The Sisters have been performing it ever since, and released it as a single at their Tenth Anniversary show at the Freight & Salvage, Berkeley, CA, Dec 12, 2010. Enjoy.

In the day we sweat it out in the streets of a runaway American dream
At night we ride through mansions of glory in suicide machines
Sprung from cages out on highway 9,
Chrome wheeled, fuel injected
and steppin' out over the line
Baby this town rips the bones from your back
It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap
We gotta get out while we're young
'Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run

Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend
I want to guard your dreams and visions
Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims
and strap your hands across my engines
Together we could break this trap
We'll run till we...

It's pretty simple, I love Bruce's music because it spoke to the pain, the angst and the dreams I had when I was younger. Maybe that's why so many people love his music. He told stories without being too literal and precise. He had a way of expressing hard to name emotions with his words and the music. No one could say as much with an "ooooh" as Bruce. He lived inside us all.

But then he got political, and overtly political. Why? He can have his views and even express them if asked, but I am so sorry he became a disciple and fawning fan of one side of politics, and joined the bandwagon of those...

Lights out tonight
trouble in the heartland
Got a head-on collision
smashin' in my guts, man
I'm caught in a cross fire
that I don't understand
But there's one thing I know for sure girl
I don't give a damn
For the same old played out scenes
I don't give a damn
For just the in betweens
Honey, I want the heart, I want the soul
I want control right now
talk about a dream
Try to make it real
you wake up in the night
With a fear so real
Spend your life waiting
for a moment that just don't come
Well, don't waste your time waiting

CHORUS
Badlands, you gotta live it everyday
Let the broken hearts stand
As the price you've...
