The Boss

Which reminds me. My dad and I went to see Bruce Springsteen in Milwaukee last week. It was a very good show, as one would expect from one of the great live performers of all time. My brief impression was that Bruce was much more attentive to his songs from “The Rising” than to the older material. Not that he gave “Badlands” or “Born to Run” short shrift, exactly, but I sensed that he wasn’t as interested in them as he was in the new stuff. Only natural, I suppose.

And I must compliment Bruce on the fact that even though we had terrible seats (way up, behind the stage), the acoustics were flawless and the huge video screens helped bring you into the show a little bit more. I don’t know if I’d make the drive again to see Springsteen, but it was cool to see a legend in person.
