Of course that would give me the opportunity to brag about the two members of the E Street Band I've met. Since I don't get to brag about U2 members I've met.

well gosh, I thought you'd never ask.

Garry Tallent and Little Steven. Garry's an old friend of an old friend. Little Steven I met through a different friend who used to work for his publicist during his solo period. Then I had another run-in with Steven...literally I bumped into him, as in collided with, at one of his shows at The Ritz in NYC. I got there early just as he was leaving from soundcheck and as I entered the ballroom he was leaving and it was dark in there (my eyes were still adjusting from having been outside) and I bumped into him. I just mumbled 'oh sorry' awkwardly and he smiled and that was that. I thought he was the sexiest thing alive back then so this was exciting. So since I was the first fool in the place I was right up against the stage because I had a feeling you-know-who would show up. Which he did for two or three songs. And I was close enough to kiss his boots. But I didn't.

hey jezebel--you're right about SPL. i just scored a free video from some guy who won't take no for an answer and won't take anything in return (i'm still trying to convince him he should take some U2 boots). the springsteen fans are wonderfully loony--they like to give things away over there. so this was an afternoon well-spent. thanks for hooking me up over there!

I'm getting it today so I'll let you know. Kurt Loder (Rolling Stone) gave it a 5 star review and the fans seem to agree. I'm especially interested in hearing the song "Worlds Apart":

(from Kurt Loder):

Quote:
His most inspired gesture comes in "Worlds Apart," a track that writhes with the sounds of qawwali, the intense, God-conjuring, life-affirming vocal music of the mystical Sufi sect of Islam - a branch of the faith much detested (and often suppressed) by death-trumpeting fundamentalist imams. Hearing ecstatic qawwali ululations underpinning a song in which Springsteen sings "May the living let us in/Before the dead tear us apart" is a truly soul-stirring experience.

Bruce Springsteen has gathered many a superlative over the years. His most resonant works stand as milestones in the lives of millions of fans. Even for him, though, The Rising, with its bold thematic concentration and penetrating emotional focus, is a singular triumph. I can't think of another album in which such an abundance of great songs might be said to seem the least of its achievements.
