This is why I’m totally done supporting Springsteen’s music. Excuse me, Bruce but we’re not embarrassed Americans at all ’cause “We The People” are the ones that voted Trump in office. Springsteen, just another brainwashed liberal crybaby. Another loser ramming his opinions down our throats and putting words in our mouths like he always is. The only Americans who are embarrassed that Trump is our president are those delusional liberals.
Springsteen is losing more and more respect as an artist. I used to love him but I’m so done. No more buying his music and I will never see him in concert either. He should take note from Lady Gaga and keep politics out of live shows.
I posted that on my twitter tonight and right away, it got all the Hillary fanatics all excited. I got several twitter mentions by Hillary supporters asking me to send them my Bruce albums to them. lmao… funny.
I got a few asking me if I have Springsteen’s album on vinyl but I don’t. I’m not a vinyl collector. I have Springsteen’s albums on CD and a few digitally for the Ipod.
The Springsteen albums that I have in my collection are:
- Born In the USA
- Darkness on the Edge of Town
- Wrecking Ball
- Devils and Dust
- The Rising
- Working on a Dream
- High Hopes
- 18 Tracks
I used to listen to Bruce a lot but his liberal politics been driving me up the wall lately. He has always been pretty liberal. I don’t think I’ll support him anymore. I’ll probably just sell these albums at a used record shop if I can find one. I’ll figure a way to get rid of ’em somehow. Maybe I should just send ’em to people on twitter, haha, I don’t know. I’ll figure something out.
It is strange though that many Hillary supporters asking a Trump supporter to send them these Springsteen albums. Maybe opposing sides can be nice to each other after all?
So Bruce Springsteen confirmed a book signing tour to help promote his upcoming memoir, “Born To Run”. To attend these so-called book signings, you must order these wrist-bands online which are free but in order to get a wrist band you must also buy a pre-signed book of “Born To Run”. Yes, you heard that right. “Pre-signed” as in the books were already signed before the event, not at the event.
It gets even better though, the signing also has all kinds of strict rules like you won’t be allowed to bring any other Bruce Springsteen memorabilia for him to sign. You won’t be allowed to bring CD’s, posters, T-shirts and things like that. The only thing that you’ll be allowed is one photo with Bruce and you will be allowed to take it with your Iphone.
It won’t be much of an event. No book discussion by Bruce, no Q&A session… just a photo with Bruce and that’s it? I bet you won’t even be allowed to talk with Bruce yourself. Maybe Bruce will allow a “hello” and a “handshake” but that’s about all.
Um, sorry Bruce but I’m losing my respect for you more and more. In my opinion, this is a bit egotistical for Bruce and he obviously thinks he’s more important than you.
Ah well, that’s just the way it is, though. A lot of famous bands & artists are great with their fans and some are horrible with their fans. Bruce turns out to be one who is horrible with his fanbase.
There are plenty of bands & artists who are great with their fanbase though. There are kind and down to earth musicians who will sign just about anything that gets handed to them. There are plenty of musicians who will get into long conversations with their fans at “Meet & Greets” and hang out with their fans. One band who I can think of who are great with their fans is Metallica. Watch all their “Meet & Greet” videos in youtube for proof on that.
Bruce is clearly into it for the money alone. He don’t care about the fans at all which is a shame. Bruce is just one of those who are not for autographs much. I think his book is just a big cash grab. Nothing more. I won’t be getting his book.
There’s been too many rock stars over the years that has written their own memoirs published and sold in bookstores everywhere. Bruce Springsteen is about to join the bandwagon. There has been too many biography books about Springsteen everywhere but those biographies weren’t written by the man himself. Finally, we’re gonna get a book written by the man himself. Bruce will finally tell his own story. Bruce started writing the book after the 2009 Superbowl in which he was the halftime performer.
Despite his liberal politics in his songs, I’m still a huge fan of the Boss. Always loved his music for years. I have a lot of albums of his in my collection. I’m planning to give the rest of his albums a listen in Apple Music streaming soon.
I’m a big fan of Springsteen and will be buying this when it comes out. In the book, I’m sure he will talk about the making of every studio album he did and I’m sure he will talk about the history of the E Street Band. It’ll be interesting stuff I’m sure. Can’t wait!
The Boss maybe taking a break from the E Street band at this time but he decided to make a surprise appearance at a small bar in New Jersey called, The Wonder Bar. Musician Joe Gruschecky had a gig there and all of a sudden he invited a surprise special guest.
Some of you may find this a little strange but before Springsteen got big and famous, he was just like the rest of us local musicians. When the Boss first started rockin’ in bands, he started playing in small bars where only a few people would show up. So fame and fortune didn’t happen for him over night for sure. He came a long way to get where he is today.
Why did he accept this gig at the Wonder Bar?
Probably because since the E Street Band is on a break or something, he probably couldn’t stand sitting around and doing nothing so he took upon the opportunity since he was free. He just wanted to play again.
I’m such a huge fan of the Boss. If you can’t appreciate Springsteen’s music, then you aren’t a true music lover! I may not like Bruce’s liberal politics and I don’t like how he’s a big time Obama supporter but I just love him for the music. It can’t be denied that he’s one of the best singer/songwriters and live performers out there.
At 65, Bruce is still doing it. He’s still rockin’ hard on stage. I’ve listened to Bruce’s music for years and still do. I’ve never seen him live in concert, though, never had the chance. I still listen to and buy Bruce’s music to this day.
I think his new album “High Hopes” that he just released in the beginning of 2014 was a killer album. I’m always listening to it.
Age is not stopping Bruce from rockin’ and that’s one reason why I still respect the hell out of him.
Happy birthday, Bruce. I’m sure he’s enjoying it with Patti and the kids.
This is pretty cool. Springsteen teamed up with writer/cartoonist Frank Caruso to write a children’s book based on one of Springsteen’s songs called, “Outlaw Pete”. It’s the first song off the album, “Workin’ On A Dream”.
I’m not into children’s books but this looks like a pretty cool read and I’m actually curious about it.
“Outlaw Pete” is one of Springsteen’s best new songs too. The song really is amazing and powerful. This is a song I’ve always wanted to cover myself sometime but Springsteen sings a lot of high notes which would be a really tough one.
Listen to the track below.
