so far away that they couldn't even hear him, just to be part of it.


His voice has been ruined by time and they no longer tour, but Tom Edison has guaranteed that his music will never be lost to humankind.

I never could get into that level of fandom. I've been to a couple very good concerts, but not going to stand in line for hours for one anymore than I would for a movie, and definitely don't understand going thru all that and still not even be able to hear it. More power to them, but I don't generally get that emotionally invested in those things.

Curious - you mean it won't be lost due to the electric recording abilities due to Thomas Edison, or is there another Tom Edison that I just don't know?

Well whatever you're calling yourself, today, you scored on this one!

Yeah, Springsteen sounds like hell; but, then again, he also sounded like hell 40 years ago. I would know, too. My mother was a solo contralto with the Fred Waring coral, and my aunt was a concert organist and pianist at several of the largest, and at the time, most popular cathedrals in North America.

I grew up listening to the most melodious (and difficult to perform) music that the western world had to offer. Trust me on this: The people I used to regularly listen to during their recitals and practice sessions would not have allowed any rank musical vocalist like Springsteen to so much as turn pages on their sheet music for them.

Noisemakers like Springsteen, et al, are symptomatic of what is going increasingly wrong with American culture. 'Rough rock' like the cacophony of stilted range, off-key noises that Springsteen makes represent an unmistakable decline, rather than the ongoing development, of Western art, music, and culture.

(Just another sorry sign of the woeful times in which we are all presently living.) :(

I've seen him live twice now. Too bad he is an anti-gun liberal that would have no problem rounding up all the conservatives and putting them in camps. His music is awesome, his politics are terrible.

In the fwiw category, just watched the video for the first time. I didn't know that Steven Van Zandt was in Springsteen's E Street Band, and has been since the 70's. I only knew him as a pretty funny actor (Sopranos, Lilyhammer) that also played the guitar (Christmas Chronicles). So thanks for that at least.
