Bruce is a rock n' roll god who chooses the road, which he will lead others to follow. The road he stepped on after recording "Born in the USA" was a path with too many lights and billboards. He has always been a man who wanted to make music, but not let the music make him into something he's not. Bruce has always like to play intimate settings because he bears his sole to a live audience. But, when you play footbal stadiums it is a hard feat to project your inner core across a giant projection screen in sync with the music. I've been lucky enough to see him perform in a bar, playhouse, college gym, arena and stadium. From the arena to the bars it is the only way to see Bruce play live, hopefully wiht the E-street Band. I can't begin to describe the moods, feeling and emotions that a Bruce concert can produce to a concert listener during a live performance. But, it became very hard for Bruce to play to a smaller audience with his evergrowing fan base. I believe he saw this coming and didn't want to sell himself short and become a corporation. I saw this as a good reason for him to write an album about death. I just wanted to share my feelings when he played "Out on the Street". This song was usually played at the end of the second set, after he made you sweat, dance, reflect, drive and want to become a rock n' roll star just like him. As the band played this song I wanted to run out, dance on the street and lead a multitude of people in celebration. I never liked being in crowds of people, but this song made me forget about myself and want to share this feeling with others.
