'Springsteen on Broadway' Is Springsteen Fully Owning the Myth of the Working Class Hero

None The greatest rock and roll prognosticators of January 1973 probably would never have guessed how Bruce Springsteen was going to spend October 2017 through mid-December 2018. Of course, music scribes of that era were rarely prone to consider the potential scope of their fields of interest because that land was just being planted with bouquets of Berry, blankets of Beatles, rivers of Rolling Stones, avalanches of Animals, and dozens of Dylans crawling up from the depths just waiting for ...

Has The Time For Classic Rock's Eulogy Arrived?

In this piece Fred Jacobs takes a long hard look at the legacy of classic rock, and whether the genre will be able to endure and gain more popularity as we move forward into the future and more legacy artists age out, or whether its time as a genre has finally come. ____________________________ Guest post by Fred Jacobs of Jacobs Media I’ve been fielding questions about the “Classic Rock Death Star” for more than 30 years now.  From the format’s beginnings, naysayers have been c...

The “Magic” Disappearing Act: Bruce Springsteen And The Short Legacy Tail

August of this year will mark the tenth anniversary of the release of Bruce Springsteen’s Magic album. I will presume early on that there won’t be much hoopla expended on the occasion. That’s a shame. While far from perfect, and certainly far from the grand statements of his youth, Magic is a sturdy plate of comfort food with an acidic bite if you’re paying attention. The songs, in the majority, concern themselves with the aftermath, the reckoning, the day after YOLO. I’d never position myself ...

Songs that remind me of travel

IF I LIKE A SONG, I listen to it 10,000 times. As a result, the songs tend to stick in my head independent of where I first listened to them. But every now and then something clicks and a song and a place become totally inextricable from one another. There’s at least some science behind it — psychologists have found that “the songs we love become woven into a neural tapestry entwined with the people, seasons, and locations throughout our lifespan.” It’s why a song can almost make you smell barbe...

John Lahr: Bruce Springsteen’s Memoir

After Clarence Clemons died in 2011, Springsteen auditioned a young sax player who arrived late and unprepared. ‘Where … do … you… think … you … are?’ Springsteen reports himself saying. ‘If you don’t know, let me tell you. You are in a CITADEL OF ROCK’N’ROLL. You don’t DARE come in here and play this music for Bruce Springsteen without having your SHIT DOWN COLD! You embarrass yourself and waste my precious time.’ The scene is not pretty; but the memoir’s value is that it risks embarrassment.
