The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Another Manfred Mann cover of a Springsteen song. They really made a living off Bruce.

Karin, I think you would enjoy my father's collection of LP's. He's a big prog rock nutter and has got about 13,500 LP's
I'd say about 60-70% is from the 60's, 25% from the 70's .

Not at all he was loved, over here his newer albums have done better than some of his older albums, infact here in England Springsteen never really made it BIG, sure he has his hardcore fans but nothing like what he is in USA

Its hard to explain this but Bruce is typical middle of the road American Rock and that has never really gone down that well over here not just Bruce but other artists/groups..... Prog rock was always bigger

I'm afraid I'm your father's age, Martin.

But the point I make in this thread is that NOWADAYS as well, fantastic progrock is being made by young fellows - check out Porcupine Tree, Anathema, Riverside, Opeth and the like.
If you won't check 'em out, just tell your dad!

Hey Ryan, I always enjoy seeing people contribute to this thread!
But then again, Bruce isn't in any way 'prog rock'... a good, well-earning artist but in no sense imaginable 'prog'.
A great songwriter though, reason enough why plenty of artists from all kinds of genres liked to make cover versions of his songs...

So that's where Manfred went after Doo Wah Diddy Diddy, down the wrong road!

But never mind, your post took me to youtube and I spent a nostalgic 30 minutes with 5-4-3-2-1, Sha La La, Go Now, and that girl that was just walking down the street singin' ..................

How can he be a prog-rock nutter and have only 25% of his collection formed by 70s LPs.

The 70s are THE decade of progressive rock.

They're a lot more prog than many of the acts posted here. That song isn't their proggest though I'll give you that.
