Either this is being staged by Eddie, or people in the audience already know to ask that question so the banner will come out.

i.e. I was at both Berkeley shows and the same thing happened.

Oh, I'm sure it's staged, but cool nonetheless

I know that, and that is one thing I've always loved about him for sure

That's a good question - I thought I saw it before, but I can't find it now, either.

Well, it obviously exists, as someone put it up on youtube. Man, it sounds so good...

...My computer/iPod hates Livin' In The Future:

Ok, I thought maybe I just screwed up the file somehow when I imported it into iTunes in the first place, but when I would listen to Livin' in the Future on my iPod, it would freeze, then restart itself. Then I found, when I listen to it on my computer it would freeze, the crash, and restart.

Now, fine, whatever, I'll just have to deal with not listening to the song, even if I really like it.

But today, I finally downloaded a boot, and when Livin in the Future came on, the comp froze, crashed, and restarted! Shocked
Played the song on my iPod after that and it did the same thing.

WTF! See, my iPod crashed about a month ago, and I lost all my Magic files, and I just got them back from a friend, but it never did this before when it was on my iPod, and it never did this to my computer before, but this is a new computer.

How can a computer/iPod hate just ONE track?

Clearly a vast right-wing conspiracy, given the nature of the song.

I KNOW RIGHT!

I tried uploading Devil's Arcade to my computer last night from my Magic cd and about halfway through the upload, it froze up. I tried it again, did the same thing.

I also have a new computer that hates one track *cue spooky music*

Terry's Song in Houston

April 16, 2008, 5:39PM
One song touches the heart


By KEN HOFFMAN
Copyright 2008 Houston Chronicle

There was a raw emotional moment during Bruce Springsteen's concert Monday night at Toyota Center that fans might not have understood.

Introducing Terry's Song, a song Springsteen wrote about the death of his friend and personal assistant for the past 23 years, Frank "Terry" Magovern, Springsteen said, "This song is for the Cox boys, Christopher Cox, Curtis Cox and Timmy, but I'm dedicating it to Ward Cox, number 9."

After the slow, sad song, Springsteen bent to one knee, face down, and held his guitar straight up for 20 seconds.

Toyota Center was silent.

Ward Cox, 16, died last October in a swimming accident in Galveston. He was a student at St. Thomas High School in Houston, one of those kids who seems to know everybody, and whom everybody loved. He wore No. 9 on his football jersey. Twenty-five hundred young people attended his funeral.

"We had no idea that Bruce was going to dedicate that song to Ward. I was hoping he would sing Terry's Song because he had never performed it live before. If you go on YouTube.com, you'll see a video about my son's life with Terry's Song playing in the background. It was an incredible moment, you can't imagine how incredible, when Bruce talked about him," said Tom Cox, a Houston businessman.

Some of the lyrics of Terry's Song:

"Now your death is upon us and we'll return your ashes to the earth

And I know you'll take comfort in knowing you've been roundly blessed and cursed

But love is a power greater than death, just like the songs and stories told

And when she built you, brother, she broke the mold."

"I have a friend who, without me knowing, passed Ward's story to Bruce's people. We got a phone call at 3 p.m. Monday asking if we had tickets to the concert, which we did, and saying there would be backstage passes for us. After the last song, we were escorted back to a room, and Bruce met me, my wife, Anne, and our sons and talked with us for about 30 minutes. He made a line of Houston celebrities wait while he talked to us about our son. I have learned that Bruce takes special interest in stories about people like Ward. I gave him a picture of my son and a bracelet with his name on it. We hugged and left," Tim Cox said.

"It was an unbelievably emotional experience, very powerful and heavy, to know that Bruce Springsteen honored my son from the stage like that. Terry's Song is special; the words have helped my family heal. I've always liked Bruce Springsteen and his music. Now I think of him more as a compassionate human being and a friend."
