Centerfield #JohnFogerty #BruceSpringsteen

Happy birthday to Mr. John Fogerty!
” Fogerty created a world of childhood memory and of men and women with their backs to the wall. A landscape of swamps, bayous, endless rivers, gypsy women, back porches, hound dogs chasing ghosts, devils, bad moons rising… In the late Sixties and early Seventies,Creedence Clearwater Revival] weren’t the hippest band in the world – just THE BEST”. Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band with John Fogerty – Centerfield at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul MN on October 5, 2004. From the DVD “Rockin’ Ass In Minneapolis”:

Family #BruceSpringsteen

Highway Patrolman is a song that always makes me think. My sister and I are very different, just like Joe and Frankie Roberts (although I have to say between me and her I don’t know who’s the one who is just no good…maybe her, a little bit :-P). We always fight, we share little, mainly because we don’t have the same passions. We have different interests, tastes, even our ideals and ambitions differ.
But Bruce is right, Nothing feels better than blood on blood, because when it’s your brother sometimes you look the other way.

I know that she won’t listen to the song, because Bruce is my passion, not hers, but Highway Patrolman is for you, my sister, Silvia.

 

End of the tour (for a little while) #Bruce Springsteen #Brooklyn #TheRiverTour2016

Back home in a few hours after two awesome shows in Brooklyn. I think yesterday’s concert was one of the best I’ve ever seen, Bruce and the Band are at top form after months of shows, and there was that feeling of being relaxed and party party party because this leg of the tour is at an end, and tomorrow they’ll rest for a while. I onestly think Bruce is happy of the work done, artistically speaking, but also relieved in a way because he is free of not having to perform every night the same show, a thing he has previously never done in his career.
I am happy and honored to have been there down the River with him and the Band, but I’m also looking forward to all the things the new set of the tour will bring.
