I’ve been trying to find a significant extract from this article to quote here to encourage you guys to read this, but actually it’s all so good I can’t simply isolate one sentence or paragraph.
Joan Walsh here speaks as much for many of us who converted to the Church of Springsteen long ago, as for those who joined recently. A Springsteen concert is not just a concert; it’s a sensual, physical, spiritual experience. And it carries the story of a man and his band, a story that has touched all of us in different ways, and that brings us together here and there - on the web and in the arena.
Read it and see for yourself. I’m willing to put money on this article being the smartest, most constructive, and deepest analysis of the current state of the Springsteen nation that will appear this year.
