Ahhhh...this was the topic that got me orriginally banned about 18 mos. ago! I have no intention of beating a dead horse, but I will forge ahead as You ignored my point...perhaps you will address it now.
My point was the influence that his live shows made on his audiences. It's true that only about 1 out of 4 of his songs were good, but his live presentation, and tight band, put him heads above more talented singers. The man would carry on and on, sweating like a pig, singing until his raspy voice was shredded...leaping from the top of 6 ft. high speakers and landing on his knees!
If you have not seen him live, in the 70's, then you are not fully qualified to critique..( I have not seen him live either, but I trust the opinion of those that have)
A word about "Bossbooster"...he is a pal of mine from, of course N.J....and a dyed in the wool Boss man...Im from St. Louis, and a lifelong Card fan..in that regard, I hold over both of you!
BTW, my favorite songs on the album in question, "Born to run" are " 10th Ave. freezeout" and "Backstreets"....I love NO OTHER Springsteen songs.
Finally...surprized to see that Baggy is a Hottie, and not a Doggie. (Unless that is a picture of her grandaughter)
