Watch Bruce Springsteen Play “The River,” Talk About Being Friends With Obama, & Show Off His Born To Run Guitar On Colbert

Bruce Springsteen has had a whole lot going on lately. His Broadway show came back. He made a podcast and a book with Barack Obama. He’s made recent collaborations with the Killers and John Mellencamp and Dion. He’s getting ready to release The Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concert, a live film and album recorded 42 years ago at Madison Square Garden. His daughter just won a damn silver medal at the Olympics. And last night, Springsteen sat down with Stephen Colbert for the better part of an hour to t...

Springsteen and Obama on friendship and fathers: ‘You have to turn your ghosts into ancestors’

Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen discuss their dads, their unlikely friendship, and second careers – as podcast hosts President Barack ObamaGood conversations don’t follow a script. Like a good song, they’re full of surprises, improvisations, detours. They may be grounded in a specific time and place, reflecting your state of mind and the current state of the world. But the best conversations also have a timeless quality, taking you back into the realm of memory, propelling you forward toward ...

Dion – “Angel In The Alleyways” Feat. Patti Scialfa & Bruce Springsteen

Doo-wop champion Dion — yes, of “Runaround Sue” and “The Wanderer” fame — has spent the last half century being surprisingly prolific, from his 1959 debut with the Belmonts to his 1961 self-titled and all the way up to last year’s Blues With Friends, which memorably featured guest spots from Patti Scialfa and Bruce Springsteen (among others). Dion must’ve had a good time flipping through his rolodex (Jeff Beck, Paul Simon, and Van Morrison also showed up on Blues With Friends), because he’s prep...

Tom Morello: ‘We came within a baby’s breath of a fascist coup in the US’

Lockdown and ‘looking after the grandmas’ may have kept the Rage Against the Machine guitarist away from recent protests – but he refuses to be silencedTom Morello has made more than 20 albums, as a founding member of Rage Against the Machine – the political rap-rock band who have sold 16m records, and whose 1992 track Killing in the Name has become a perennial protest anthem – and of the bands Audioslave and Prophets of Rage. He also plays solo under the name the Nightwatchman, and has toured w...

‘I saw something in Bruce Springsteen that nobody else saw’: the world according to Stevie Van Zandt

The Boss’s trusty sideman has many plans – from saving central America to TV Hogmanay at the Playboy Mansion – and he’s more than happy to share his rock wisdom It is the middle of the 1980s, and Stevie Van Zandt, having departed the E Street Band and left Bruce Springsteen’s side, is pursuing a solo career. He has also parlayed decades of experience playing in bar bands into a new and unusual role: international activist and campaigner against injustice. And so he finds himself, in company with...

On my radar: Sam Fender’s cultural highlights

The Tyneside rocker on his favourite bath time podcast, a second world war memoir and where to get the best breakfast kippersSam Fender was born in 1994 and raised in North Shields. He began writing songs aged 14, building on an affinity with Bruce Springsteen, and started acting a few years later, appearing in the ITV series Vera.

John Mellencamp & Bruce Springsteen – “Wasted Days”

Over the years, Bruce Springsteen and John Mellencamp have followed roughly similar career arcs. They both debuted in the ’70s and under-appreciated singer-songwriters. They both became stadium-status MTV icons in the ’80s by singing anthemic and synthy rock anthems about common-man struggles. They have both since eased into elder-statesman respectability. Springsteen and Mellencamp aren’t exactly on equal levels historically, but it’s fair to call them peers. And now they have a song together. ...

Bruce Springsteen Announces The Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concerts Vinyl And Film

In September of 1979, a collective of rock stars who called themselves Musicians United For Safe Energy, or MUSE, organized a series of concerts at Madison Square Garden in New York. At the time, Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band had just finished its Darkness On The Edge Of Town tour, and they were getting to work on The River. A couple of months later, that collective released a triple-LP live compilation of recordings from those shows, but Springsteen only had one song on that. (Springsteen’s...

‘Not just a drummer – a genre’: Stewart Copeland and Max Weinberg on Charlie Watts

The Police and Bruce Springsteen drummers share memories of their late Rolling Stones counterpart, explaining his technical brilliance, his verve – and his clothes-folding skillsI’m an early-period Stones fan, and not so much because of losing interest in them, but because when you’re 16, music is 100 times more important – and the Rolling Stones were right there when I was 16. Humans are sort of like ducks. A duck comes out of the shell, the first warm thing it sees is mama; for adolescent teen...

An Immersive Pink Floyd Museum Exhibition Is Coming to the U.S.: Get Tickets Online

While it’s not technically incorrect to call Pink Floyd a rock band, the term feels somehow unequal to the descriptive task at hand. One doesn’t so much listen to albums like The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall as experience them, and this went even more so for their elaborate, increasingly colossal live performances. A retrospective of Pink Floyd’s history, which stretched back to 1965, must do justice to Pink Floyd’s transcendent ambition: this was the goal of Pink Floyd: Their Mort...

Meet ‘American Idol’ Top 12 singer Chayce Beckham, the Apple Valley musician out for redemption

Chayce Beckham sings roots, rock, and reggae, too, but the story of his life just before “American Idol” is a classic country all-gone-wrong song. In a matter of months, the 24-year-old from Apple Valley says he lost his band, his girlfriend, and his dog, too. And that wasn’t the worst of it. That would be the day he drove after drinking, rolled his truck, and “ended up on the side of the highway upside down,” as he described on “Idol” the wreck that led to still-pending DUI charges. “I was all,...

Rockin' in the free world? Inside the rightwing takeover of protest music

It’s easy to laugh at hardcore patriots misunderstanding Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the USA, but such appropriation is increasingly widespread – and dangerously twisting the truth“Did you know that Born in the USA is actually an anti-Vietnam war anthem?” Since Donald Trump embraced the 1984 Bruce Springsteen song during rallies, the lyrics have prompted so much explanation it now borders on cliche. Yet it’s no less unsettling for it, becoming a prime example of a startlingly widespread trend fo...

Rickie Lee Jones talks ‘Last Chance Texaco’ and tales of music, heartache, addiction and family

Singer-songwriter Rickie Lee Jones says she decided to write her life story for one simple reason. The material was just so good. “I know I have great stories to tell,” she says recently by phone from her home in New Orleans. “I’ve told a few to audiences in live shows, and told them to friends, and watched them play in my head again and again.” Readers can now get the chance to experience these tales themselves in Jones’s memoir, “Last Chance Texaco,” which hit stores on April 6. She recounts t...

Top 10 Super Bowl halftime shows of all-time

The Weeknd is set to play the halftime show at Super Bowl LV on Sunday afternoon, and if you think we accidentally left a letter out of his name, well, this might not be the halftime show for you. It is, however, a bold, modern choice for the National Football League, picking the alternative R&B artist born Abel Tesfaye to perform when the hometown Tampa Bay Buccaneers play the reigning champions Kansas City Chiefs in the big game. While The Weeknd is a big star, he’s not as huge as the typical ...

Warum es okay ist, die Zeit zu beweinen, die du dieses Jahr verloren hast

Ich kann beinahe fühlen, wie sehr mir mein Jetlag zu schaffen macht, als ich meinen Kopf müde, aber glücklich ans Fenster des Taxis lehne. Ich gucke raus und sauge die unglaublichen Eindrücke meiner Abenteuerreise auf. Schon fast kann ich die sanfte Frühlingsbrise des Mittleren Westens spüren, die die Härchen auf meinen Armen streift, während ich Ohio, Indiana, Missouri und Nebraska erkunde. Tatsächlich bin ich aber an keinem dieser Orte gewesen. Von einer Brise oder einem Jetlag kann auch ni...
