The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put \x34Born in the U.S.A.\x34 or \x34The River\x34 down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, let¹s face it, the man rocks.

You’ve probably spotted it on social media today — an unusual full-page ad apparently placed by Bruce Springsteen Inc. in the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet:



According to Backstreets.com, it was Bruce’s idea to place the ad in recognition of the “reception he has received in Sweden over the years.” But some have already started to second-guess the nature of the ad, noting that it looks, well, kind of farewell-ish.

Not to insinuate that Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are planning to wrap up the Wrecking Ball tour and ride off into the sunset — Bruce may just be feeling nostalgic and grateful, which tends to happen to People of a Certain Age who are lucky enough to have stuff to be nostalgic and grateful for. But it’s hard to deny a certain air of finality.

So what do you think? Is this a sign of things to come (or not to come), or just a nice gesture? You can allay our fears or whip us into a frenzy of worry in the comments.
