    Umm, what? He's made so much great music since. He's one of the last superstars who, after so many years in the music business, still manages to remain relevant. His music is great, but you really have to listen to the lyrics, they deal with a lot of stuff that's going on in the world, he's an amazing storyteller.
    I think that we have developed an industry of would-be experts who are not professional, who are not experienced, who are very amateurish about their comments about what's going on in courtrooms and who are willing to give opinions when they're not even there. And I think it has become the theater of the absurd, and I think it reached its lowest level in this case.

    He wrote "Cover Me" for Donna Summer, but she declined. So Bruce recorded it himself and put it on his 'Born In The USA' album.

    Springsteen Rocks Super Bowl With Classic Hits
    February 01, 2009 08:13 PM ET
    Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.
    Billboard



    Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band made the most of their 12 minutes during the Super Bowl XLIII halftime show tonight (Feb. 1) in Tampa, Fla., rocking through the classics "10th Avenue Freeze Out," "Born To Run," "Glory Days" and the new song "Working on a Dream."

    "I want you to put the chicken fingers down and turn your television all the way up," Springsteen commanded as the band jumped into the vintage sing-a-long "10th Avenue Freeze Out," which was played at the three-minute running time of its studio version on the album "Born To Run." In live performance, the song is frequently stretched into a 15-minute jam.

    With Springsteen and guitarists Steven Van Zandt and Patti Scialfa on a platform in front of the stage, a choir joined the group for "Working on a Dream," the title cut of the new Springsteen album released on Jan. 27.

    The set concluded with the "Born in the U.S.A." chestnut "Glory Days," an appropriate Super Bowl choice for its reference to a "hail mary" pass. After the final note sounded, Springsteen shouted, "I'm going to Disneyland!"

    The Super Bowl performance capped a Springsteen media blitz tied into "Working on a Dream." The artist also made available a new "Greatest Hits" package exclusively at Wal-Mart, prompting a host of negative comments from fans and observers.

    Manager Jon Landau defended the move in a recent Billboard interview, but Springsteen told the New York Times this weekend that the decision was "a mistake."

    Springsteen and the E Street Band kick off a world tour April 1 in San Jose, Calif.

    Wow, I LOVE Bruce, even though his new album, Working on a dream, is not so appealing to me. I like some songs on it, but most songs sound like fillers and leftovers from his previous album, Magic, which is a great album. The Superbowl performance was great, very energetic and dynamic, but his voice was obviously suffering a bit. And the scene where he crashed with the camera was just hilarious.

    After MJ Bruce is my favorite singer... I've been lucky to see him live twice so far and will see him in concert again this summer!

    I quite like his new album. Especially I think 'The Wrestler' and 'The last carnival' are very beautiful! <3

    Default Western Stars trailer


    Warner Bros. Pictures will release a cinematic film version of Bruce Springsteen’s latest album, Western Stars, worldwide, on the big screen. Longtime collaborator Thom Zimny directs together with Springsteen in his directorial debut. The announcement was made today by Toby Emmerich, Chairman Warner Bros. Pictures Group. “Western Stars,” which will make its world premiere at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival, is slated for release this fall. However, fans can get an exclusive first look ahead of New Line Cinema’s “Blinded By The Light,” opening in theatres nationwide August 16, 2019.

    Springsteen’s first studio album in five years, Western Stars marks a departure for the legendary singer/songwriter while still drawing on his roots. Touching on themes of love and loss, loneliness and family and the inexorable passage of time, the documentary film evokes the American West—both the mythic and the hardscrabble—weaving archival footage and Springsteen’s personal narration with song to tell the story of Western Stars.

    “Western Stars” offers fans the world over their only opportunity to see Springsteen perform all 13 songs on the album, backed up by a band and a full orchestra, under the cathedral ceiling of his historic nearly 100-year-old barn. Emmerich stated, “Bruce lives in the super rarified air of artists who have blazed new and important trails deep into their careers. With ‘Western Stars,’ Bruce is pivoting yet again, taking us with him on an emotional and introspective cinematic journey, looking back and looking ahead. As one of his many fans for over 40 years, I couldn’t be happier to be a rider on this train with Bruce and Thom.”

    Western Stars, Springsteen’s 19th studio album, has achieved global success. It has been #1 on the iTunes charts on every continent, including such countries as the U.S., the UK, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Australia, India, South Africa, and all of Scandinavia, among other countries. It has also received rave reviews, with critics using words like “hauntingly brilliant,” “beguiling,” “gorgeous” and a “masterpiece.”

    Springsteen and Zimny, who together helmed “Western Stars,” have collaborated on several projects over the years, including the documentary “The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town,” and the Netflix filmed version of the Tony Award-winning “Springsteen on Broadway,” which Zimny directed.

    “Western Stars” is written and performed by Bruce Springsteen, with Special Guest Patti Scialfa. Thom Zimny, Jon Landau, Barbara Carr and George Travis produced the film, with Springsteen serving as executive producer. The original score is by Springsteen.
