    Springsteen released new song today _ Ghosts. I thought a good track and video. In the video he strums guitar below - any idea what that is? 3AFC117E-2D00-4D3D-BDA5-6EB3C4B38EAA.png

    I am amazed at the footage at 1:12 in from his week stay at The Bottom Line in 1975.

    I had no idea color footage existed from one of his most iconic concerts.

    Catch the Rolling Stone cover story if you get a chance. Pretty good article and interview with a lot of the backstory of the new album.

    Excellent tune. Sad that he's the lone member of the Castiles still alive, but at least George's passing gave him a kick in the behind to get back to writing band material. I really like both cuts I've heard.

    The archival footage (especially The Bottom Line 75) is amazing, like finally seeing that footage of Dylan at Manchester in 66, or if I just found out someone had footage of The Beatles in Hamburg.

    The new music is kind of pedestrian, life affirming, middle of the road rock, just kind of boring to me. I understand what he's trying to do, and I give him credit for just being alive at this age and continuing to work, but if you told me we could get a full COLOR concert of one of his most iconic stays, I would be truly freaking out.

    Good song. Production with a vintage feel but somehow fresh also. That is very hard to pull off.

    Not Bruce's biggest fan but good is good and that is some good stuff there.

    Saw Bruce back in 78 on the Darkness Tour, from the 8th row in Pittsburgh's old Stanley Theater.
    He played until the police turned on the house lights.
    Bruuuuuuuceee!

    The new album is on the way. I see that it’s No 1 at Amazon.
