DAILY Arts December 2, 2016, by Libby Webster

Features Story March 2, 2017, by Margaret Moser
"...Three weeks ago, I interviewed with Russ Hartman, who printed an offhand comment of mine in Austin Daze: "Mr. Springsteen, if you're not busy on Wednesday night before your keynote address, I've got a place for you to be, because Alejandro is going to be workin' it up at the end of the show and you're not going to want to miss that..."

DAILY Music May 8, 2014, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Bruce Springsteen’s SXSW showcase at the Moody Theater in 2012 meant the E Street Band never returned to play for 10,000 additional diehards at the Erwin Center, a fact he lamented in citing Texas when asked if the tour would return to the U.S. after an Australian trek this winter..."

Springsteen Takes Dallas to The River
Epic stand once again reiterates who’s the boss
DAILY Music April 6, 2016, by Raoul Hernandez
"...At the 3:20 mark – hours, not minutes – Bruce Springsteen could only repeat, “I got nothing.” Some 20,000 fanatics at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas on Tuesday knew better, even if the E Street Band looked ready for a post-concert cocktail. A somewhat anti-climactic “Bobby Jean” served as canny come down from three-plus hours at dizzying heights...."

Darkness on the Edge of Town
Darkness on the edge of Springsteen
Music Story December 17, 2010, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Bruce Springsteen's stake into such exclusive ranks, The River, at 20 tracks, runs some four minutes too long to fit onto an 80-minute commercial CD. Originally, the album was turned in to Columbia Records as a single disc, only to be second-guessed by its author, who then added to and subtracted from
it for another year..."

Dead Man Walking
Film Review February 2, 1996, by Alison Macor
"...The use of flashbacks further fleshes out the main characters as well as the events for which Matthew is imprisoned. Providing haunting musical backlighting for the film's visuals are songs written expressly for Dead Man Walking by artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Vedder, and Johnny Cash..."

DAILY Music April 4, 2013, by Abby Johnston

"...Today’s announcement that President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will give keynote speeches at South By Southwest – him for Interactive, her for Music – makes past keynoters like Bruce Springsteen, Johnny Cash, and Lady Gaga seem like C-listers by comparison. SXSW Director Roland Swenson talked us through the booking process...."

1, 2, Tres, Cuatro: Dear Diary
Did I know Bruce Springsteen was going to play the Austin Music Awards? Excellent question.
Music Column March 23, 2012, by Margaret Moser
"...But once a year, we all meet on common ground, tap into our assignments at odd hours, scarf Fritos, and swap war stories of who we saw in the trenches in 15- and 30-minute increments; then it's back into the night, sometimes not to meet again for a year. Most of them asked one thing: Did I know Bruce Springsteen was going to play the Austin Music Awards?..."

Bruce Springsteen doesn't call E Street pianist Roy Bittan "Professor" for nothing
Music Story April 3, 2009, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Beginning with Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run in 1975, Roy Bittan's piano playing finds perfect complement in one word supplied by an accordionist describing the emotional palette of his instrument: pathos. Bittan (pronounced "bitten") expresses more sympathetic compassion on 88 keys than 35 years of "Jungleland" crystallized by a Rockaway Beach comber in service of Springsteen's E Street Band...."

Music Review January 19, 1996
"...All the promo material that came with this LP screams so loudly about Bruce
Springsteen's involvement that the real artist gets lost in the fray. El Jefe
produced, co-wrote a couple of fine songs, and played guitar on a majority of
tracks, but it's Rust Belt Rocker Grushecky's pen and voice that make this one
of the most impressive roots-rock LPs this reviewer has ever heard..."

"...Having been a fan of the 1970s Steelers, they were naturally my pick in the Superbowl, so I’m feeling pretty smug. I even watched Bruce Springsteen during halftime and came away from it thinking, “Not bad, Bruce – ya stuffed your career into a 12-minute medley..."

Limousines?!? At Springsteen?
Columns April 21, 2000, by Louis Black

Alejandro Escovedo comes full circle
Music Story June 20, 2008, by Dave Marsh
"...For the last 16 years, Alejandro Escovedo has been one of America's two or three greatest popular music artists, but if you just moved to Austin, you probably don't know it. If you live somewhere else and know the longtime local, perhaps it's because you saw the YouTube video of him performing "Always a Friend" with Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, April 14 in Houston..."
4th of July, Asbury Park: A History of the Promised Land / Runaway American Dream
Music Review October 7, 2005, by Jim Caligiuri
"...Amazon.com lists more than 80 books under the subject of Bruce Springsteen, including one written by the man himself (Songs). None, however, have used Springsteen, his music, and his popularity as a jumping off point to explore the history of Asbury Park, N.J., the place where Bruce became "the Boss." Wolff paints a well-researched, detailed portrait of South Jersey, but his thesis that the story of the seaside resort is the story of America doesn't really congeal..."

"...The 30th anniversary convergence promised a headlining set from AMA fixture Alejandro Escovedo, billed with special guests, but even Moser didn’t know until the day of the show whether Bruce Springsteen would show up, let alone get onstage (see “Did I Know Bruce Springsteen Was Going to Play 2012?”)...."
Born to Run
Born to Run
Music Review December 8, 2016, by Libby Webster
"...Written over seven years – longhand, in the author's notebooks – Born to Run transcends mere fulfillment of fans' desires. Rather, Bruce Springsteen boldly sails a remarkable, fantastical odyssey: Blue-collar kid from small town New Jersey becomes a singular musical embodiment of the American spirit..."

Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Frank Erwin Center, April 17
Music Review April 21, 2000, by Christopher Gray
"...Bruce Springsteen & the E Street BandFrank Erwin Center, April 17 Life is good here in the promised land. If Bruce Springsteen's themes -- rivers, cars, highways, girls, work, freedom -- have always been quintessentially American, the fundamentalist zeal of his music is outright Lincolnesque..."

The tell-all, focusing on music first, life second, delves deep into the Boss' recurring depression issues..."
All Things Must Pass
Film Review November 6, 2015, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Once the Sacramento outlet expanded to open a store on L.A.’s Sunset Strip, within spitting distance of all the record companies’ headquarters, Tower Records grew to iconic status. Elton John, in one of the crucial non-employee interviews (David Geffen, Bruce Springsteen, and Dave Grohl are some of the others) would ritualistically come in every Tuesday morning and walk all the aisles with a list of planned purchases, while his limo driver followed with a container to hold them all..."

I went up to the Crossroads – and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – fell down on my knees
Music Story July 2, 2010, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Joy Division constricting into New Order, Johnny Ramone's downstroke-sanded Mosrite Ventures II guitar, Joan Jett's Jaguar XJ-S – there isn't even time for the Hall's next two floors, housing fuselage wreckage from Otis Redding's last flight and a telegram from comedian Redd Foxx to Jackie Wilson on the occasion of the soul pioneer's ultimately fatal, decadelong coma: "Get up niggah, we need you and love you and screw you." The acid blotter in Janis Joplin's glass case has been removed, the Hall's 25,000 items yielding only 4,000 on display. Upstairs, bricks in The Wall offset the spire-bound special exhibit "From Asbury Park to the Promised Land: The Life and Music of Bruce Springsteen." The Long Center's local screening two weeks ago of Springsteen's new DVD set, London Calling – Live in Hyde Park, suddenly seems 2-D...."
