I'm going to see Springsteen for the first time on Monday. That's right, on St. Patty's day.

OK, I'm way late, but I was a metal head in high school and a punk in the eighties.... never had the right opportunity before.

Hope it went well for you!

Well, sure and begorrah, I hope me fellow mick Bruce puts on a fine show. I suspect he will, since he always does. The very last song should be particularly appropriate this Monday.

Bruce's best early band was a proto-metal band, first as a power trio and later quartet. His guitar prowess is stunning to those who only know his later work—he sounds remarkably like Eric Clapton fronting, I dunno, Deep Purple, maybe. Only, you know, not as hideous as that combination might sound. :)

And, you know, he loved the Clash, and was great friends with the Ramones—he actually wrote "Hungry Heart" for them, at Joey's request. He'd already been around too long to be even remotely considered punk, but by his fourth album, he actually had an awful lot in common with 'em.

Hope it went well for you!

It went okay, thanks. Could have been better but could have been quite a bit worse. I wish I'd remembered to quote my sister-in-law who said, upon seeing the above video, "Wow. I've never seen anyone with clothes on seem so naked."
