By Chris Moore:
Well, I am regretfully feeling pretty terrible tonight and my throat has taken quite the hit. So, should we just cancel the session for the night and wait for “Jim Fusco Tuesday?”…
Not a chance!
Instead of a music video tonight, I’m working on the first in a series of articles on rock music that I will release in the coming year. I’m still trying to work on a name for the series as a whole. Maybe “Rock Face: The Face of Rock Music Today.” Sorry, that was a shameless inside joke that only a few of you will get.
Seriously, though, I’m working hard on this article now and I hope you enjoy it when I post it later tonight.
On an unrelated note, the Bruce Springsteen Halftime Show performance yesterday was even more exciting than I thought it would be, for a number of reasons. First of all, the performance itself was great. As Jim’s father pointed out, it looked like Springsteen would need to be hooked up to oxygen immediately after the show, based on all the energy he put into the twelve minute performance. Once again, I’m not really a Springsteen fanatic, but I love his recent work. I’ve been somewhat unimpressed with his live work (including a couple of concerts televised on television over the past few years), but the Super Bowl performance was certainly a high point of the game for me. I realize that’s sacriledge and I may be branded as an outcast, but so be it… Oh, and that being said, there’s a really funny list on a Yahoo! blog today called: “The 10 Unforgivable Sins Of Bruce Springsteen’s Performance At The Super Bowl.” Jim sent it to me earlier today. Worth a read for any music fan.
The second reason why the performance was so exciting is its aftermath. I posted the set list and some general comments and predictions yesterday, mainly because I was looking forward to the show and it was on my mind. Well, the post helped catapult us to an all-new view record for a single day on the Laptop Sessions music blog! Thank you, Super Bowl, and thank you, Bruce Springsteen!
Stay tuned for the article to come; I hope you enjoy reading it!
