We love Bruce Springsteen here, with nary a condition or a reservation. He’s that kind of an artist and that kind of guy. See also his thoughts on Donald Motherfucking Trump (his birth name) as previewed by Rolling Stone’s Brian Hiatt in what is sure to be a revelatory interview soon to be published.
He is also nice. Bruce. And Brian, but today is Bruce’s 67th birthday and so take an hour and nineteen minutes to check this out: A nice recording of Bruce and his pre-E Street Band band Steel Mill, back when he was still in guitar hero mode, playing live for a whole lot of happy Monmouth College students. He was 20 years old at the time. ‘Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ’ was two years away. ‘Born to Run’ was three years from there.
