  • Hey @Bathgate66 - what's the word on the new solo album? I thought it was originally a Q1 release for 2017 and then aimed for fall of 2017. When I heard of the residency, I thought the solo album would be tied to it.

    One of my favorite Springsteen quotes:

    Not sure where I first read this but I found it again on Wikipedia:

    "The song ["Like a Rolling Stone] had a huge impact on Bruce Springsteen who was 15 years old when he first heard it. Springsteen described the moment during his speech inducting Dylan into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and also assessed the long-term significance of "Like a Rolling Stone": The first time I heard Bob Dylan, I was in the car with my mother listening to WMCA and on came that snare shot that sounded like somebody'd kicked open the door to your mind ... The way that Elvis freed your body, Dylan freed your mind, and showed us that because the music was physical did not mean it was anti-intellect. He had the vision and talent to make a pop song so that it contained the whole world. He invented a new way a pop singer could sound, broke through the limitations of what a recording could achieve, and he changed the face of rock'n'roll for ever and ever "

    This is interesting to me because Springsteen was just a year older than I was and the song had the same influence on him as it did me-- and many others no doubt.

    "The answer is never the answer.  What's really interesting is the mystery.  If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking."
    -Ken Kesey

  • I'm pretty sure that's the correct URL for his official boots. I can't open it on my phone because, well, this app sucks. But I'm fairly certain it's correct. 
  • http://live.brucespringsteen.net/ is his site. I've purchased many shows from there.

    (I can't get your link to work either.)

    Just got out of the broadway show and it was without a doubt the best live music experience of my entire life. I am speechless.

    I absolutely hate it. It's just full on country music.

    Well, I don’t think I agree with that very much. But I like genuine country music. There’s some beautiful instrumentation that you’re missing on this.

    I like the song! No need to stand embarrassed about that one!

    If the man want to make a country song/album, then let him.

    Springsteen is now making country music...lol...maybe rock really is dead.
  • mrussel1mrussel1 Posts: 12,408
    I encourage Bruce to make whatever the f he wants.  As long as he is making music, the world is a better place..

    Springsteen is awesome but it has to be tough to create something new that sounds new when you have been writing music so long.    This single isn't really grabbing me.

    I had no idea this song would be so controversial, it's almost as bad as the time I said that Off He Goes has a country vibe!

    I don’t think it is country.

    New album on Friday.  I think this is gonna be an album you listen to in the morning on the front porch.  Nothing really grabbing me on the first three released songs.  Sounds like background music.

    I think the reason they may not like the new stuff is because they have in fact moved on.

    Haha...Bruce is awesome.    I'm just not digging the style of music on this new record.  It is where he is at musically right now but not where I'm at in my musical taste right now.   Best American artist of all time though.

    I think he was just trying something new on this solo album.  I like what I have heard so far. But I doubt the new E-street album will be anything like this.

    I was hoping this would be like a follow up to Nebraska, sort of how Harvest Moon is a follow up to Harvest.  But it definitely is not as dark as that masterpiece.
