Is a Dream a lie if it Don’t Come True Or is it Something Worse

I defy anyone to say Bruce Springsteen is not a brilliant lyricist or performer. This is Bruce at Glastonbury. My dad used to say something that is at once true & poignant. “Elvis may have been the King, but Bruce is the BOSS!” There is no one around today who’s music gives me goosebumps more than Bruce Springsteen. Those kids at Glastonbury singing along to “The River” are reliving what many of their parents went through 20-30 years ago when Bruce was first making his mark on the world. Bruce is truly a Rock God.

    The Boss is the s@!t! His music is all encompassing and landmark and Matt that’s awesome of you to write something on that! I remember visiting family in Michigan during a tragic death of a cousin, who died at 32 leaving three sons and a wife behind! His favorite song was ‘Atlantic City’ and listening to it than, in the late 90s, it was like it was written for my cousin Brian! I’m sure the E Street bands hundreds of songs have their mark on individuals, families and our culture everywhere!
