Bruce Springsteen
The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put \x34Born in the U.S.A.\x34 or \x34The River\x34 down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, let¹s face it, the man rocks.

It disappeared for a while yesterday, but the trailer for “Springsteen & I” — the documentary project from Ridley Scott Associates, Black Dog Films and Scott Free London — is back on YouTube, and for a certain brand of Springsteen fan (i.e. crazed), it’s bound to ring a bell. Check it out:



While we can’t advocate ever referring to Bruce Springsteen as “my macaroni & cheese,” and have concerns about the woman referring to Bruce as “Daddy” to her baby son, the flick really looks like a must-see for true fans. Like Lawrence Kirsch’s wonderful Springsteen collection “For You,” featuring fans’ stories of what the Boss has meant to them, “Springsteen & I” looks like proof positive to us diehards that we’re not crazy — or if we are, we have a lot of company.

The only problem is the grammar — shouldn’t it be “Springsteen & Me”? Or perhaps their construction is explained in the doc. (“Springsteen and I take long walks on the beach in my dreams every night,” etc.)

We’ll have to wait and see — Cineworld Cinemas is slated to debut the doc in the U.K. later this year, and hopefully we’ll see a U.S. release soon after. Supposedly more news on the doc is coming via Twitter — follow at @springsteenandi.

UPDATE: Brucespringsteen.net reports that the film opens July 22 worldwide with tickets on sale July 4. Plus, you can get your picture on the movie poster.
