Re: New solo Springsteen record coming in June

This is something that fascinates me about music. I think Magic, Working On A Dream and High Hopes are completely without merit. Not one redeemable quality to any of them.

Re: Spotify playlists

There is a Spotify playlist I found that brings me back to my early records. look for K-TEL by PJ PLummer 98 songs featured on K-TEL albums. Not everything but quite a bit. I find the "gag" songs aren't on there like The Streak or Frogman Bradley. Found it https://open.spotify.com/search/playlists/...

Cooley was destined to be a cool kid but that 5th grade setlist cinches it.

Re: New solo Springsteen record coming in June

To say that Bruce has underwhelmed me for a while now would be an understatement. It had gotten so bad one of my buddies asked me if I even liked Bruce the artist anymore.

The pay rate for streams is something like this.

For every 1,000 streams the band / artist gets 7 cents.

Manhattan Plaza has a pretty rich history of artists who lived or are living here. It was Tennessee Williams' last home; Charles Mingus. Dexter Gordon. Al Pacino. Alicia Keys. Terence Howard. Dylan Baker. Timothée Chalamet. Larry David. Samuel L. Jackson was a security guard here. Uhhh, holy shit.
