I like Springsteen a lot as an artist (and I make that distininction because he's super annoying in interviews).  He's definintely in my top 10 or 20.  On the way to work this morning, I heard a track on satellite that I always find momentarily funny/disconcerting because it sounds so much like Springsteen, but it's not.

I guess it's people sounding like other people day.  She sounds like a Scottish Shakira, in a big way.

And I just remembered that Gregg Allman track contains the line "let me start a fire with your spark".  Ha ha.

Any particular reason why?

It's an entirely personal take Amazon....he's usually kind of jumpy and he laughs too much and there's just a kind of mildly frenetic superficiality about the whole thing.  I don't in any way mean to imply anything negative about  his character or anything, just a rather significant personality clash of sorts.  It's perhaps silly to feel that so surely about a virtual stranger though, isn't it?  But I really do with him.  Warren Zevon was great in interviews.   Didn't say much, but what he did say was worth listening to.  He walked quietly and carried a big, smart, witty stick.  Though time can change impressions, I do think we know a lot instinctively and in fairly short order about who we will like, and who we might not, and even who we could love.  Let's just say Patti Scialfa has nothing to worry about from me. ;)

He is one of the few musicians that you can call a legend

Born To Run is one of my all time favorite albums.

I also liked Bruce's 80s stuff, though most fans would disagree.

Wow.  That almost fits perfectly as a verse for Born To Run.

^ As soon as I read that I immediatey heard my 'line' in 'Blinded by the Light' off 'Greetings from Ashbury Park'.  Don't you think? Ha ha.  There's a line in there that always makes me think of Freddie: 'And now in Zanzibar a shootin' star was ridin' in a side car hummin' a lunar tune'.  Very crazy cool song.  And Manfred Mann's terrifically rearranged cover remains one of my all time favourite songs ever.

Bruce Springsteen is awesome. He's under-appreciated around here. People around me are more into John Mayer than the Boss, even the so-called Classic Rock vanguard.
Has anyone heard the Bruce Springsteen and Michael Stipe duet of "Man on the Moon"??
