Reason #1,239,389,347 why Bruce Springsteen is a decent - if not altogether amazing - human being: he respects, loves and admires his fans. Makes me proud to belong to this particular church.

I don’t know anybody who can really explain music - what it does to the brain, what it does to the heart. But it does something that we need.

A few considerations written at 4am after a 24-hr return mission to see my 12th Springsteen concert

1. Bruce Springsteen. Really, that could be all.

2. With the right company, some food and water, and an appropriately delirious frame of mind you can get up at 2am on 4 hours’ sleep, then proceed to be awake for 24 hours straight, under moderately tough physical conditions, come rain or shine. Your body has an inordinate amount of hidden energy: even after you reach the point of exhaustion you will still be able to sing your heart out, jump and dance to your heart’s content for over three hours, then keep the driver awake on the journey home.

3. I am never as happy as I am at a Springsteen gig. Everything else besides that moment ceases to exist; life is pure present tense. I should carry this feeling with me everywhere, always, forever, when the past and the future are weighing me down.

4. Bruce Springsteen can reduce me to tears with just a couple of words and notes. They are the only tears I’m happy to cry.

5. The motor engine of the E Street Band is really the symbiotic relationship between Max and Bruce: they are the beating heart and brain of the band, my favourite thing to watch, in motion, together.

6. Bruce Springsteen comes to Italy to hear us sing just as much as we go to hear him sing.

7. If you’re “thinking 2am? 4 hours sleep? Worldwide travel? 12 times? For the same band? This is stupid.” you haven’t the foggiest idea what’s going on there. You just can’t understand until you try it.

8. Thunder Road is the most beautiful song ever written.

9. The E Street Band can throw a party. I know it’s only rock’n’roll but I love it.

10. Bruce Springsteen. Really, that is all.

Bruce plays drums while Max dances during “Dancing In The Dark,” Omaha

Damn,  I left my “Can I dance with Max?” sign at home back in July and somebody got there before me.

Three years ago today BT and I walked down the aisle to If I Should Fall Behind by Bruce Springsteen (the Seeger Session version).

As we grow and love, and fight and work it out every single day of our lives, the words of this song formulate what is for me still the most mature, brilliant and true declaration of love a marriage can give: a good, honest promise to keep. 

We swore we’d travel darlin’ side by side 
We’d help each other stay in stride 
But each lover’s steps fall so differently 
But I’ll wait for you 
And if I should fall behind 
Wait for me
