The Boss Turns 60

Text settings

Somehow or other I missed the 60th anniversary of Bruce Springsteen's birth this week. The Boss turned 60 on Wednesday and if that seems oddly perturbing then, I suppose, at least it's not as cor-blimey a thought as realising that Martin Amis celebrated his 60th birthday last month. Aye, the times are racing on right enough.

So, by way of belated thanks, here's the great man performing Mansion on the Hill, from his wondrous trip along the darker roads of Americana, Nebraska.
