Bruce? No, thanks

Unlike David Brooks, Jack Shafer doesn’t appear to be a fan:

At times like these we must remember what the man from NME once wrote: A Springsteen concert is OK if you like 3 hours of hog calling.

And Scott Galuppo chips in on the Springsteen-as-cultural-beacon debate:

If David Brooks really wanted to see irrepressible rock fanaticism, he should’ve gone to South America instead of Europe. In my rough estimation, countries like Brazil and Argentina culturally lag behind America and Europe by a good 30 or 40 years. They still greet our geezers with Beatlemania-like energy.
