Bruce is looking mighty Keef-like there.

And am I the only one not partying to the Brendan O'Brien relationship?

Well, I thought The Rising was very good, so hopefully this will be on the same level, if not better.

I liked the Rising very very much. I want things to rock a little harder than that this time.

Agreed.

Based on Landau's quotes, we just might get our wish.

I like the picture

In honor of Elvis' 30th anniversary..

Last year, EPE published an all-new edition of Elvis Presley's Graceland - Official Guidebook. It's jam-packed with photographs and information, a major improvement over the very good previous guidebook.

Following is the section of the book that gives some of the history of the front gates of Graceland, including the story of the night Bruce Springsteen jumped the fence:

The Front Gate

Throughout the years that Elvis lived at Graceland the front gate area was a place fans enjoyed being. There was the chance that he might drive through in one of his cars or on a motorcycle, or ride down on a golf cart or on horseback and have an impromptu autograph session. They could also watch him and his friends ride their horses and golf carts around the grounds. Even when Elvis out of town, it was fun to be at the gates, getting to know the guards (some of whom were Elvis’ relatives) and meeting other fans from around the nation and the world. When Elvis was away, sometimes the guards would let fans onto the grounds for photos, sometimes even driving them up to the front of the house. There was a sense of warmth, welcome and camaraderie. Actually, some lifelong friendships between Elvis fans began at the Graceland gates.

While, in general, things tended to be calm enough around here, it wasn’t all that uncommon for fans and curiosity-seekers to climb over the stone wall or wood fence on a dare or, more often, with the heartfelt hope of seeing Elvis. The security staff had more than one occasion to politely escort uninvited guests off the grounds, sometimes having to summon them down from the trees. On one occasion Elvis happened upon a couple of mischievous young guys who had jumped the fence and were taking a swim. Elvis is said to have nonchalantly suggested that they be careful, then went on about his business. Once, an enterprising fellow actually made his way into the house and was found sitting in the den waiting for Elvis, hoping to interest him in some songs he had written, but he didn’t get to have that meeting.

The most famous incident of wall jumping occurred one night in 1976. Bruce Springsteen, who was enjoying the first rush of great fame and had just played Memphis on his Born to Run tour, decided to catch a cab to Graceland. Noticing a light on up at the house, he climbed the wall and ran to the front door. As he was about to knock, Security interceded. He recalls asking, "Is Elvis home?." Answer: "No, Elvis isn’t home, he’s in Lake Tahoe." (It was true.) Springsteen attempted to impress the guards by telling all about his being a recording star and his having recently made the covers of Time and Newsweek, as he was politely escorted to the street. (Perhaps they didn’t believe him or hadn’t heard of him yet.) Years later in a concert, he told the story and commented:

"Later on, I used to wonder what I would have said if I had knocked on the door and if Elvis had come to the door. Because it really wasn’t Elvis I was goin’ to see, but it was like he came along and whispered some dream in everybody’s ear and somehow we all dreamed it. And maybe that’s why we’re here tonight, I don’t know. I remember later when a friend of mine called to tell me that he’d died. It was so hard to understand how somebody whose music came in and took away so many people’s loneliness and gave so many people a reason and a sense of all the possibilities of living could have in the end died so tragically. And I guess when you’re alone, you ain’t nothin’ but alone. So anyway, I’d like to do this song for you tonight, wishing you all the longest life with best of absolutely everything."

I love that story.

And I think this album will rock pretty hard. Can't wait to see Bruce and Stevie at the mic this fall!

I wonder how long it will be until we hear the first single, "Radio Nowhere".

..very exciting news! I almost squeeled when I read it on a bruce board, great fucking thursday news. the photo is pretty solid, i likey.

my only semi-complaint..is the album title... Magic? It sounds so Madonna/ Mariah Carey generic album kind of title. But I'm assuming and very much hoping that once I hear the album it might be fitting.

I'm curious to see what the album cover will be, if this is the last E street album...will Bruce still plaster his and only his photo on it or will the band finally get to grace the cover..for all I know the whole entire time the band might not have wanted to be on the covers. I'm starting to ramble, sorry,
I'm just anxious for October already

So, Magic. Not exactly the kind of album title I would associate with Bruce. It makes me think of that old Olivia Newton-John song, or that corny song from the 70's by some one hit wonder that escapes me at the moment.
I thot of magic as in the "magic of R&R" ESP LIVE! R&R which we KNOW Bruce & E ST EXCEL at!
and another certain band................


I just heard the news this aftgernon on CBS-AM radio {NYC area}



I figure something else to get REALLY EXCITED ABOUT R&R/FUn-wise, while we wait for U-NO-WHO(S) to get their album up & running!
