Bruce Springsteen

Some artists have problems with their fame and become uncool because of these problems. Some don’t. Bruce “The Boss” Springsteen certainly does not! He knows who deliver him his fame (namely his fans) and he keeps them happy at all times. He’s in time for his performances (which is quite special these days) and he keeps playing for hours. Furthermore, he feels one with his fans and if they get wet, he gets into the audience and gets wet too (referring to the Goffertpark, the Netherlands).

He makes music which is comprehensible and with critical texts (try listening to Born In The USA and hearing a positive word in it). The music around it is just great. Making use of several instruments like guitars and most famous: the mouth-harmonica on The River, in performances mostly given away. He has become a legend with the performance of Dancing In The Dark, where he makes a dance with a fan.

Live superb, on albums superb, great music and an incredible career. Worth a place in the Hall of Fame, isn’t it?

(By the way: I have never seen him live, but I’d like to)
