    That's a shame. The secrets of the Universe are being revealed in those lyrics.

    BTW, I finally had a chance to listen to The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle, and indeed, there is some "epicness" in some of his tracks, especially on the flipside. I never realised there were 4 tracks above 7 minutes on that album.
    New York City Serenade could be an early Van Morrison track, really
    This one might've now snatched away the top Springsteen spot on my list, dethroning Greetings.

    Neither does Jon!!

    But Aymeric did a fairly good attempt of deciphering Jon's mumbo-jumbo in his Yes book.

    If an artist wanted to host an event where he/she did nothing but talk about their political or social views, I might go if it were free, but I wouldn't pay for it. But using a concert to preach to a captive audience is rather indulgent, even if I agreed with the views. If I pay for music, I want music. I understand not everyone goes to concerts for the same reasons I do. Hell, many people's motivations for attending concerts elude me.
    With all due respect, if you pay what one would have to pay to see Springsteen live and don't know where he stands politically, or that he will express that during his shows, that's on you.


    That said, I've seen him about a half-dozen times now and he wasn't political at any of the shows I've seen.
    Music isn't about chops, or even about talent - it's about sound and the way that sound communicates to people. Mike Keneally
