Bruce Springsteen joined The Who for a couple of classics live this week.
Springsteen presented the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award for charity to Pete Townshend on Thursday (May 28, 2015) during a MusiCares benefit concert in New York City.
Bruce told the audience that he was ‘a pimply faced teenager’ when he first saw The Who in 1967. He added that ‘The Who were young pimply-faced teenagers’ as well.
Even back then Pete Townshend did his signature guitar smash at the show. ‘All I knew, for some reason, this music and the demolishing of all these perfectly fine instruments filled me with incredible joy and I never looked back,’ Springsteen said.
He called Townshend ‘the greatest rhythm guitarist of all time’.
Working ten hours tonite, be nice to one another…!
Bruce Springsteen has already recorded his next album and it will be released before the end of the year.
Springsteen fansite blogitallnight.com posted the first news as rumour of the next record over the weekend, ‘Here is a great way to start out the weekend. I heard that Bruce Springsteen has finished recording his new album and it is now in the mixing stage. The best part of it all was that I was told it would be released this summer! It seems unprecedented for Springsteen to release a new album without a few months notice but after all, he is The Boss. As for what the album consists of, I was told it was very different from what Springsteen has put out before. So with my grain of salt, here is to hoping that this particular rumor is true!’
Springsteen’s last album was ‘High Hopes’ in January 2014. The next album will be the 19th Bruce Springsteen album.
Another work nite for moi…! What’s on your mind tonite…?
