Springsteen looks at his songs and in the end doesn't know where they came from.
Does he write these lyrics in an altered state or, perhaps, he doesn't write them at all.
He records in Atlanta without the ESB so it's safe to assume he and the ESB do not compose the music.
So, then what does he do?
He tours with the ESB singing songs that he didn't write or wrote from an altered state; songs that in the end when he looks at them he doesn't know where the came from and playing music which he didn't compose.
The quality of his voice and the music when they are performing live does not compare to what is heard on an ENHANCED CD!
Members of the "ESB" have CONTRIBUTED to the new album.
Additional tracks are being recorded with and without the ESB.
There is trouble describing the sound, but a lot of production is being used with the versions already recorded.
Different versions of each song are being recorded (with and without members of the ESB).
This is why Springsteen is a "solo" artist and the reason he was inducted into the Hall of Fame and the ESB most probably never will be.
How can it be positive news that this is the last tour for the entire ESB?
Just a rumor to attract an audience?
Look for the tour to kick off on or about 10/02/2007 in New York with a quick swing around the country until the end of November. All of the major cities, to include LA, DC, Philly, Boston, Chicago, etc. will be covered. The month of December will include a quick tour of Europe, about 10 shows or so. January and part of February look to be time off with a full world tour to begin in full effect during the Spring of 2008 (Feb/March) with outdoor arena shows scheduled for the summer of 2008. The U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia, will all be on the schedule.
Yep. They pay Springsteen millions so he can do whatever he wants. Apparently, he loves non-stop recording and touring.
He owns them. They don't own him. He pays them. The don't pay him.
In your make-believe world of a cat named FIGMENT.
