Did anyone else watch the tv coverage of Bruce Springsteen at Glastonbury tonight?
How good was that? Loved every minute of it!!
Had been waiting to see it all night, got distracted at work and managed the last 5 minutes!!Hopefully they will repeat it on the red button at some stage
Springsteen at Glastonbury
I used to be a huge Springsteen fan about 20 years ago but not listened to him at all recently. Have just order some of his more recent CDs from Amazon.
I liked Neal Young better... but then again I'm an old hippy
'Keeep ooown rocking in the freeee wooorrrld'
Everytime I've seen Springsteen do 'Born to Run' recently, it seems really slow.
I know everyone raves about his energy etc., but personally I think he's just trotting out the old catalogue and sounding a bit tired.
Go on - hate me!
i'm with you moose. down with the fogeys.
Bruce was working so hard he was steaming!
He is too good to act "cool" like all these no-mark bands who'll be nowhere in 3 years, and he works hard for his money.
"New" is not synonymous with "good". Most new bands are like mayflies - gone in an instant, and their songs speak of nothing and to nobody.Class endures whether its Bruce or erm, some modern band who are erm, jolly good ------> insert name here.
hi JB. i actually love The Boss, and my gripe is not really with him.
it's more the traipsing out of a plethora of old bands who trot out greatest hits to may massive mortgages when that's not really in the spirit of the festival (although I appreciate michael eavis has to make ends meet and such bankable acts are lucrative).
it's just a bit embarrassing. john peel would not have stood for it
But The Quo?
That much denim would surely give me an attack of the vapours.
I thought Brucie was just playing the same old song for the whole set .....
I don't really get Bruce anymore as a stadium rocker... probably would if I was there
Love his bluesy folksy intimate stuff though....
Yeah... they'd have pulled the plug on anyone else..

Springsteen...rubbish, Jacko would have outshone em all.
Have to say I have never ever liked Springsteen, but hats off for a 3hr set. Ditto C,S,N & Young , in my opinion , very dull, and th eless said about Tom Jones the better.Best acts that I saw were the Specials, Lily Allen, White Lies, Blur and Dizzee. Kasabian played another good set but even though I like the songs , got a bit bored by Franz Ferdinand. Lady gaga was a bit hit and miss, and sadly missed Madness.
