Whatever. He'd probably think the same of you.

I might come out of retirement to have a 'tool-off' with that little weiner though!

One of my issues is this: Born to Run was a huge seller. After BTR, his fans started to like his earlier stuff. Why? Was it good when it was originally released? Then why weren't Greetings from Asbury Park and The Wild, The Innocent, and the E Street Shuffle popular then? They were realeased at a time when FM radio was virtually free-format. Ed Sciaky played songs from his first two albums in 1973, when they were released, and they didn't make much of a splash. Two years later and his fans LOVED the first two albums.

Don't get me wrong, I think Bruce was an important artist, and a good, but not great song writer, but I just can't understand the zealous nature of his following.

Well, that's perfectly understandable. Haven't you ever learned of a band and then looking for more of their stuff, you discovered they had earlier music, so you listened to that too? Sometimes the earlier music is good, but you just didn't know about it, and sometimes it stinks.

We most definitely come from the same generation. I feel like I was just transported back to 1980.

Classic rock is when music was music.

You know what freaks me out? The "oldies" station here used to be strictly 50's, then they moved to include 60's and 70's. But now they are classifying 80's as "oldies". Oldies?!! Was it really that long ago? I say no. Classic yes, but not oldies.
