    That made me laugh out loud - it's a good schtick on Springsteen's part.


    Just to let you in on a secret - the whole thing is scripted.

    I agree. Springsteen has a great band, but that wasn't ad libbed.

    Who's "parade raining"? Just pointing out it's not what it's pretending to be. Still a great band. Are we supposed to pretend it's amazing that they could throw a song together when clearly they didn't?

    If you have to ask.

    You could maybe say nothing and let the OP enjoy the illusion. Treat it like kids with Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny. Or do you ruin stuff for children too?

    If he told you to jump off a building would you have done that too?

    A tribute to the genius of Chuck Berry? What a great song that is...

    wtf? Somebody posts HOW GREAT THIS IS and then somebody says, its not great, and thats bad?

    Springsteen is WAY over-rated in my opinion. And I saw two shows in his glory days.

    Etiquette is a lost art, apparently. All that matters is that I want to give MY opinion. And right now!!!

    As far as it being scripted, of course it is. Bruce is one of the biggest hams in show business. And it is after all show business, so why not?


    I assume most or at least many of us have seen Bruce's account of being hired to back up Chuck Berry for a gig back in Bruce's earlier days. If not, dig it up, it's pretty funny.

    This is a discussion board, OP posted a video and asked for opinions. I'm not understanding the problem. Nobody said it sucked, and even if somebody did, expecting everybody to share your opinion or for all opinions to be positive is kind of goofy.
