That Bruce depression

After a short layoff, I’m back listening to Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band live shows. When a tour ends, I have to take a step back. I sometimes get overwhelmingly sad thinking “did I see my last E Street Band concert?” I’ve been to many concerts the past few months — including Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne, Bob Seger with J Geils, Southside Johnny and the Jukes. Southside, Seger and J Geils were tremendous concerts. Ryan Adams and Ray LaMontagne: love the music, hate the stage presence. But I would see them both again. To overcome my post-tour Bruce depression, I just downloaded the Aug. 9, 1978 Springsteen show, which was just a few months before my first Springsteen concert: Nov. 12, 1978. So now it’s time to put in ear buds, shovel and feel like I’m 16 again.
