Bruce Springsteen never really took much of a break after "Magic" and now he's on the road with "Working on a Dream," a record that doesn't seem to be a huge hit with the fan base.
But Bruce has injected some thrills into the set by other means.
The Boss is on a bit of a punk kick.
According to backstreets.com, in LA last week he was joined by Mike Ness of Social Distortion for "Bad Luck."
In Boston Tuesday, the E Street Band road-tested a cover of ZZ Top's "I'm Bad I'm Nationwide." OK, that's not exactly punk, but then on the second night in Boston, they covered the Ramones classic "I Wanna Be Sedated" (with crowd sing-along) and were joined in the encore by three members of the Dropkick Murphys.
The way things are going, Bruce is going to want to play with Anti-Flag not Joe Grushecky in Pittsburgh on May 19.
