Sahm and Springsteen: Same Size, Same Power

RECEIVED Sun., March 18, 2012

Dear Editor,
    Thanks for the article on Bruce Springsteen at the Armadillo World Headquarters [“'The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle,'” Music, March 16]'. The big Texan vs. little Jerseyite argument made me laugh. When I first saw Bruce back in '73, he reminded me of the most exciting performer I had ever seen – a little skinny guy named Doug Sahm. Same size, same power. Both amazing.
