Steve Van Zandt checks in with Billboard discussing the upcoming Springsteen tour, reissues his rather incredible solo albums that are now out of print and the release of hard rock albums through a spin off label.
Liz Clarke has a wonderful piece about being a Springsteen fan in the Washington Post from a few weeks back. She takes you through a the highs and lows of being a Bruce fan. Do we expect too much from our heroes or do they fail us? This is a brilliant read.
Bruce Springsteen has some killer new features on his official website. First up are mentions of several artists with clips to them covering Springsteen songs entitled "Hangin' Out On E Street". I've always admired artists who take the time to shine light on new talent. If you're looking for some new music and are not sure where to start, any of the artists on the Springsteen site would be a great start.
Lastly, Springsteen writes a journal of his experience at the Super Bowl. This is one of the coolest things Bruce has ever done. It includes behind the scenes pictures and some rather comical insight from the man himself. Even industry cynic Bob Lefsetz praised the blog in his own blog.
