Review - Springsteen on Broadway
Well, I did it.  I was one of the lucky few selected in the lottery to attend Springsteen On Broadway, one of the hottest tickets in town.  Honestly, I didn't tell many of my friends I was going in the weeks leading up to it, for fear of jinxing it.  It was...

R.I.P. Tom Petty
Yesterday, the music world lost yet another legend in the great Tom Petty.  While Petty is known for working with tons of other musicians, like Stevie Nicks and the Traveling Wilburys, there is surprisingly very little crossover between Petty and Springstee...

Great Moments in Springsteen Transpotation History - The E Street Shuttle
Last weekend, I had the privilege of going to a lovely wedding in central NJ.  While I've recently moved to Bruce's old stomping ground, there's still plenty I have yet to experience in the 732 area code.  You can feel Bruce's influence throughout the area,...

Great Moments in Springsteen Television History - Sealab 2021
After last month's 30 Day Challenge , I was pretty burnt out on Springsteen.  Even the announcement of Springsteen on Broadway didn't inspire me to get back on my Springsteen fanblog game. (Mainly because this ticketing system seems doomed to fail.  Don't s...

The 30 Day Song Challenge, Day 30
Finally!  The last day! My favorite song at this time last year!  Let's do this! Last year, Bruce was in the middle of his River  tour, and man did it deliver .  During the summer last year, I was probably listening to "Meet Me In The City", as well as many...

The 30 Day Song Challenge, Day 29
Two more to go!  For day 29, I have to pick a song from my childhood.  While I'd love to say my mom sang Springsteen songs as lullabies to me, that sadly is not the case.  However, as I grew up in the late 80s/early 90s, Springsteen was everywhere and unavo...

The 30 Day Song Challenge, Day 28
We're in the home stretch with a strange one - a song that makes you feel guilty.  Unlike a guilty pleasure, which I ranted about two weeks ago, today I actually have to pick a song that I feel bag when I rock out to.  Let's go: "Trapped" is a fantastic cov...

The 30 Day Song Challenge, Day 27
Day 27 is pure wish-fulfillment: what song do I wish I could play?  Not going to lie: I often walk down the streets with my music blasting in my ears, fantasizing about playing in front of thousands of adoring fans.  Is that relatable, or just sad? You deci...

The 30 Day Song Challenge, Day 26
I'll totally have to cheat today.  It took about 5 years of piano lessons in the mid 90s, as well as a couple weeks dicking around on a guitar, to realize I have no musical ability.  So, my options here are incredibly limited.  But, we'll give it a shot. "W...

The 30 Day Song Challenge, Day 25
The last few days have been a roller coaster of emotions - angry, happy, sad, weddings, and funerals.  We take yet another turn today with a song that makes me laugh.  While Springsteen can often be humorous on stage and in interviews, his songs are often d...
