Great news from E Street this week. Bruce and The E Street Band will indeed be hitting the road behind a new album in summer 2012. What the lineup will look like and how the horn 'section' will be filled remains to be seen. After The Big Man's passing, both Bruce and Steve emphasized that the band would still make music together, because 'that's really all we know how to do'. I for one am glad.
Another interesting note on Backstreets.com this week... Thanksgiving Day 2011 is the 35th anniversary of perhaps the greatest concert (and without a doubt the greatest rock movie) of all time , The Band's legendary farewell performance, The Last Waltz. I knew it was my favorite holiday for a reason....
Little Steven (the coolest guy in the world, post on that coming soon) is honoring the occasion with Robbie Robertson week on The Underground Garage. If you have never checked out his radio show, you really should. It is one of the best things going in Rock and Roll today.
Happy Anniversary to the Last Waltz and Happy Thanksgiving to You with my two favorite guest performances from that remarkable night, way back when I was 1 month old :)
