Don't get me wrong, Bruce Springstein is a fine artist in his own right but, Roy Orbison and all of the other great performers don't need him on stage with them. He's tainting a lot of once in a lifetime performances. His yelling off key style is not needed. Bring out the hook and get him off stage.

He has a horrible underbite, can't sing, think, or dance. I'm fortunate that I do not have to listen to his music. I do however kinda like his Christmas song. It grows on ya. He's a liberal ya say? Who'd a thunk it.

When Springstein was starting out he used to come to a nightclub in DE, the Stone Balloon. George Thoroughgood was a local guy and he came around a lot too. But George had already cut 'Bad to the Bone.'(the owner of the Balloon was Jill Biden's first husband.)

Neither had the talent, voice or band that another local guy, Johnny Neel had. But both were obnoxious and quite taken with themselves. The world owed them. Like you say, all Springstein did was scream his lyrics and he had some bad habits on the side.

Thoroughgood is probably broke except from royalties from that one song. At one jam session on a Saturday afternoon, when George came off the stage a girl said to him,'come back when you can't stay so long, George.'

Johnny Neel, blind since birth, went to Nashville and had semi-success as a writer and keyboards. He wasn't all about the celebrity, but the music anyway. He was nominated for am Emmy when he played keys with the Alllman brothers.

I never got why Springstein 'made it.' He was not talented.

Excuse me! Neely was nominated for a Grammy, not an Emmy.

The fact that none of you can spell his name and can't recognize his genius, tells one all one needs to know about you.

John Lyon aka Southside Johnny has more talent than Bruce or George combined. I've always wondered why he didn't quite "make it".
