I'm a casual fan(fave album-the river)my son is a zealot,so we watched this last night,and it was great.We didn;t love the casual race throughs of some of the tunes,but the stories are great.
If your a Bruce fan and haven't seen this yet,don't read anymore!
So,one of the things we liked best was how self deprecating he was,and willing to deflate his own mythology.I won't spoil it for you by regurgitatting dialogue here,but the MAJOR bomb dropped was that his onstage public persona since Born To Run is a caricature loosly based on his image of his father.
Yup,he has been playing a role his entire career.

I have been a Springsteen fan since I was 12...so 35 years. This show really grabbed me. I love the intimacy, the honesty and it's a look into the "real" Bruce. I love it. I'll likely watch it again soon. The songs really breathe in this setting too. I'd say it's a favorite of mine.

GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
