Check out the rest of the set over here.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street are embarking on a nine week North American tour to celebrate Bruce’s 1980 album “The River.” The tour coincides with the release of ‘The Ties That Bind: The River Collection,’ which includes 52 tracks on four CDs and a wealth of unreleased material. The band heads to DC to play a show tomorrow before returning home to New Jersey on the 31st. It’s an incredible show with Bruce and the band playing for over three hours every night. Pick up tickets to see them in a town near you over here.

Christopher Hall is shooting two shows a night. He tweets over here. He takes photographs over here. Drowning in broken comteks.

this is the kind of boss fan I am.

You’re all going to laugh at me.

So someone I follow was talking about top ten Bruce Springsteen songs, and he had a fairly original list of songs (I didn’t necessarily agree, considering certain songs were conspicuously absent from the list). I was inspired to make a top ten playlist of my own.

So I create a new playlist in iTunes, and title it “best of bruce”. Except then I click out of the name entry area and it jumps up to its alphabetical place – right beneath another playlist also titled “best of bruce”.

I look at it. It’s a top ten list.



Thanks for everything Jon. This was a great way for him to go out.


Bruce Spingsteen & The E Street Band - If I should Fall Behind

This has always, and will remain, right up there with my top favourite songs ever.
I have no shame in loving Springsteen as much as I do; between my mum and I, we have every album and several bootlegs - on disc and cassette, motherfucker.

Up until I heard this song, I always thought Clarence Clemons just played sax; but his voice is amazing - you can’t deny it. Rest in peace, big guy.

Bruce Springsteen Does Everyone a Solid, Releases Free Show Download | SPIN
Winter Storm Jonas forced the cancellation of many a concert in New York this past weekend, including Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's Sunday night set at Madison Square Garden. Rather than use the opportunity to take it easy, however, the Boss has released as a free download their January 19 show at Chicago's United Center (the one during which they covered Glenn Frey's best Eagles song in tribute to the deceased musician).

I’m so glad I’ve seen Bruce and the full E Street Band in concert so many times.  I’m a lucky girl.  Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out is one of my all-time favorites.

The wonderful version of the ultimate Springsteen live number, Rosalita, from the Live 1975 - 85 set.  

Because today is my Friday night, and I know no greater or more fitting song for the kickoff of a weekend than this.  

Bruce Springsteen said of Clarence: Clarence lived a wonderful life. He carried within him a love of people that made them love him. He created a wondrous and extended family. He loved the saxophone, loved our fans and gave everything he had every night he stepped on stage. His loss is immeasurable and we are honored and thankful to have known him and had the opportunity to stand beside him for nearly forty years. He was my great friend, my partner, and with Clarence at my side, my band and I were able to tell a story far deeper than those simply contained in our music. His life, his memory, and his love will live on in that story and in our band.
