    today is bruce springsteens 65th birthday, hes 24 

    first time i heard bruce springsteen i was all whatever

    and then they put point blank on and i was all omg

    and these were the days before people said omg

    so i turned it up.

    they were playing the river all the way through for some reason.

    maybe it was sunday.

    people say i dont listen to the radio, oh let me tell you something

    i listen to the radio.

    anyways point blank came on and then drive all night at some point

    now i know what youd say, that we currently live in the golden age of radio

    where every station has something amazing and fantastic and ground breaking

    but back then it wasnt like that at all.

    these were the days when there was only 4 channels on tv.

    youd think radio would be amazing, but no. which is one reason mtv blew doors

    and radio copied it like cray cray

    which doesnt mean it improved it.

    for if you recall, mtv embraced dancing in the dark way more than no surrender

    it preferred glory days over even the live version of born in the usa.

    mtv wanted that dumb red bandana on bruces head

    they wanted one on clarence too.

    bruce didnt know what to do about it so he played around and did what they said

    and the only time it was any good was on im on fire.

    but seriously how do you screw up hey little baby is yr daddy home

    did he go and leave you

    all alone

    i got a bad desire

    happy sixty fifth birthday,

    bruce springsteen

    amazing singer, guitarist, songwriter

    and right up there with prince

    as the greatest performer in rock.
