The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put \x34Born in the U.S.A.\x34 or \x34The River\x34 down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, let¹s face it, the man rocks.

Last night, was the Stand Up For Heroes benefit with musical performances by Max Weinberg’s Big Band, John Mayer, Roger Waters, and Bruce Springsteen, and for the first time, the benefit was streamed live. If you missed the event, you can still watch the stream; Bruce’s set starts at 2:04:00. Not only did he sing an acoustic “We Take Care Of Our Own,” he sheepishly told too cheesy jokes like only The Boss can. Sadly the stream ended before Bruce’s guitar was auctioned off, which, because his shirt was also auctioned by Brian Williams, was one of my favorite highlights of the evening last year.
