I came across an article in the New Yorker Magazine on the Boss, Bruce Springsteen.
A quote from Bruce jumped off the page and slapped me on the face.
“But you are the same as everybody else in the sense that your troubles are the same, your problems are the same, you’ve got your blessings, you’ve got your sins, you’ve got the things you can do well, you’ve got the things you fuck up all the time. There was a series of elements in your life – some that were blessings, and some that were just chaotic curses – that set fire to you in a certain way.” (New Yorker Magazine, July 30 2012)
I was never a Bruce fan as a youngster, though I’ve grown to really dig his music over the last 20 years.
