There was a time, well, never when I would cry about meeting Bruce, but maybe when I would have thought it was kind of cool, when I would have even asked him, “Courteney Cox...did you hit it?”. That time is probably almost twenty years in the past, it it’s not there already. Basically anything since he decided he was permanently the new Pete Seeger is not of interest to me.
“...he decided he was permanently the new Pete Seeger...”
Seeger is a stone cold communist but he is a much better singer than Bruce could ever dream of being. I think Seeger is less of a phony as well.
I read a piece on him in the New Yorker and it told of him standing on the road by his upstate home, holding a sign protesting the Iraq war (or whatever); all alone at whatever great age he is, in his 80s or something.
You won’t catch “the boss” doing that, now or ever.
