Who is the boss around here?

Why everyone knows who the boss is. Don’t they?

Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949), nicknamed "The Boss," is an American singer-songwriter who records and tours with the E Street Band. Springsteen is widely known for his brand of heartland rock, poetic lyrics, and Americana sentiments centered on his native New Jersey. -

I guess that makes him Bruce 62 today. Well, that might be true. He is getting old but music is immortal. All you have to do is turn it on and rock. THE BOSS!

Rumor has it that the 'Boss' will be performing again with the 'E' street band. My late friend, Clarence, place is being filled by an orchestra section. The gentle giant requires alot of people to try to replace his sound.

Nice to see you posting Bluedoll. I liked the poem in your last Blog post, but of course it's locked for comment. Otherwise I'd have let you know that they were great words.
Very Happy

Thats amazing he is still performing. I like seeing them do their thing my only worry sometimes is if the fire is gone or old age has changed something that prevents them from delivering. Some performers lose it and others seem to be able to do even better with their music.

Right. Someone like Elton John seems to have hit the right vibe at all stages of his life. There are a number of artists like him. Very Happy

A lot of artists stagnate over time; they might keep going, but they have nothing new to offer. This sometimes works in their favour, though, as a lot of people don't want anything new, they want what they already know. Bands like the Rolling Stones or AC/DC fit this nicely. The Stones haven't done anything new in decades, but still draw an immense crowd, and somehow still have energy on stage (really quite amazing), and AC/DC have had a career built on variations of 3 songs Razz

You can contrast this against bands like Rush, who haven't had the same commercial success as The Stones or AC/DC, but, continue to innovate and change their sound throughout their career (and are still making new albums, even!), exploring new ways of expressing themselves.

Springsteen kinda fits into the first category, I think. That's not a slight on him at all, what he does is pretty awesome, but, he's got his sound/content and that's what he's stuck to. He's definitive Americana, and that's what his fans are after Smile The man's left one hell of a legacy, and has been an influence to a myriad of musicians. I hope he does continue with some touring.

I am amazed how if a persons health is good these artists just keep up there craft and can even get better with age like old wine. However, time does catch up with us all. For the fans you can test it by asking someone younger than yourself what they think of the person. After a while all the bands turn into the "guess who" when the young person back to you says, who?
