The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put \x34Born in the U.S.A.\x34 or \x34The River\x34 down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, lets face it, the man rocks.

Not only is the airfare too expensive for most of us to do more than daydream about being there, but thanks to the magic of time zones, those of us with day jobs probably can’t even plan on watching the setlists unfold in real time. So what’s a fan to do?
Well, it’s been said (by me, five minutes ago) that a tweet is the shortest distance between two points. And increasingly, Twitter has become a great way to get quick updates and photos straight from the horse’s mouth — wait, horses don’t tweet, they neigh… metaphor fail! Anyway, several of the E Street Band members are on Twitter now, and here’s the official Blogness guide to who’s who. As far as we know, with one exception, these are actually the people they purport to be, not fake or parody accounts. And they’re worth following.
Core band members:
Bruce Springsteen – @springsteen This is the one exception; don’t expect any Bruce-composed tweets here, but it is the Twitter account of brucespringsteen.net and any information coming from it can be considered to be official.
