    This is one of my favorite songs of all time.



    I also think his album The Rising captures the aftermath to 9/11 better than anything that was ever produced.

    I'll look for it on Netflix. For the record, I like him personally.

    He was going to put out an album after Darkness on the Edge of Town but just never did and then put out The River instead. All of those unreleased tracks finally got put out some years back as The Promise. 21 songs that could’ve been hits for any other artist, he just didn’t bother to release. I think he probably has a lot more “b sides”/throwaways than that but I don’t have the energy to keep up with all his output. If you listen to someone like Steve Earle (who I like) he’s basically doing Springsteen stuff with a southern accent.

    not sure how I missed this comment yesterday, but I'm a big fan of both. I'm not a big concert guy, but I've seen them both several times, all excellent shows. probably my two favorite artists
