That's a really good name.

A-fucking-men. Every time I hear a sax solo in a rock song I go "WHYYYYYYYYY?!"

Seriously though that's a good suggestion.
Glad it helps.

Last names are hard to come up with, for me at least.

Greatest closing line ever?

'Tis. Springsteen Live from the Hammersmith Odeon '75 is a great show that was just released a few years ago.

Not lyrically. I think it is amazing lyrically. I would just like a better musical outro.

No. He played organs and keyboard. The pianist is Roy Bittan, AKA The Professor. He also played piano on Bowie's Station to Station and Scary Monsters albums.

I'm telling you that it is either unnecessary or obnoxious. I cannot think of a single rock song that has ever benefited from the inclusion of saxophone. Every song feels like it would be just fine without the sax, and in numerous cases it would be quite better (looking at you, Don't Hate Me by Porcupine Tree).

Awesome. I like his work.

Springsteen, Jon Landau, and Mike Appel.

Appel was Springsteen's manager through the first three albums, but once Springsteen met Landau, during the Born to Run sessions, he preferred him to Appel. After the album, Appel and Springsteen got into a long court battle, and, as part of the contract he was trying to leave, he couldn't get into the studio till it was over: hence why Darkness wasn't until 1978. Born to Run had a lengthy tour for the same reason.

Yeah, Screws, it's a woodwind.
Agreed. The sax definitely has its time and place. Us and Them is ten times better for it, as a PF example.

I hate Us and Them, it's so damn long and never seems to go anywhere. Any Colour You Like is more interesting.

I've always sucked at it too. When I was younger, I would use really exotic and unusual first names coupled with last names I randomly invented, hence Amak Axver, Zinzan Weque, Zemfira Vixz.

Nowadays, I tend to use first names that although well known, aren't too common, and steal last names from New Zealand towns or famous people. Last names I've used in my latest project like Kyeburn and Earnscleugh are places in Central Otago.
