Five Must Read Bruce Springsteen Stories. Take That, Grantland

Last week I took my ten year old son Owen to his first Bruce Springsteen show in Columbus, Ohio. Tonight, ignoring all logical reasoning I'm driving to catch the Boss in Pittsburgh because you know, he is the boss. At some point Springsteen's magic powers have to fade and I want to see him at least one more time while he is still in top form. In honor of this, I thought I would tidy up our excellent Bruce coverage here at Pencilstorm with a quick recap of past stories. They are all excellent and worth your time. You find anything comparable on our rival website, Grantland. Please share them with other like minded music fans. Thanks- Colin
