lol. As much as im a huge fan of the boss, is there any more celebrated, studied and talked about artist out there than he is?

There are hundreds of books about his life, music, his philosophies, his songwriting, there are authors and film makers who make stories and movies out of his songs. There was a cold case episode where they used all springsteen tunes during the show.

There are preachers and ministers who reference him. this guy wrote a book https://www.amazon.com/Gospel-according-Bruce-Springsteen-Redemption/dp/0664231691.

The tennis player del potro said meeting springsteen was like winning the us open... https://www.sport24.co.za/Tennis/USOpen/del-potro-meeting-the-boss-like-winning-us-open-20180901

There was a movie Springsteen and I based on fan experiences at concerts and in their lives
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVQUeCi9V0s

Now there is a movie about a Pakistani author who gets inspired by Springsteens music...
https://www.thewrap.com/bruce-sprin...d-by-the-light-release-date-warner-bros/

Even me somebody who has seen him over 30 times, is a bit exhausted by all the fanfare.

His music means a lot to a lot of people, but there is also big money in anything Springsteen!

The only reason "Del Potro" said it was like winning the US Open is because he won the US Open once and realized it didn't change his life like he thought it might have.

I am not sure why but Bruce never caught my interest for some reason. Sure, I enjoyed some of his music as I was a kid when he was his peak charting self, but I also recall when I was in College and he was playing his huge Born In The USA tour I had a chance to go back stage, meet him etc. because he was playing at the facility where I was interning, plus free tickets to the show and I passed on it. And I don't regret it. Not because he's not good or anything silly, he really just didn't seem iconic and special to me in any way. I recall when I was even younger when Peter Frampton was the biggest rock star that I would have killed to get the same offer. Back then I couldn't even buy tickets to his sold out tour when it came to my town. We listened to the live simulcast on the radio that night. So I wasn't against being an uber fan, I just preferred Aerosmith and Heart instead. And now, decades later, and with all that I have learned about the business and all the stars I have met (including getting to hang out all day with Peter Frampton who sadly just announced he was retiring) I still don't get the fanfare over Springsteen. I don't see his catalog any more superior to others in the same eras, it is certainly impressive, but so are those others.

A classic case of different strokes. Usually people become obsessive fans when they are young and get over it when they have families and other things to obsess over. So for him to still have such a following when I ask my nephews if they like him (which I did) and they haven't the slightest idea who he is (3 different sets of nephews/cousins of varying ages). Maybe it is just nostalgia.

Well it's in part because of the geography. Imagine anybody from Liverpool not liking The Beatles, Or Shepards Bush not liking The Who, or California not liking the Beach Boys, He is the most famous artist to ever come out of NJ. Sure, lots of people dont like him, but his enormous fame came from NJ. Artists from Ireland and England said they had never been to NJ but understoof what he was talking about. The jersey sound is legendary and he created it. Rock n roll with sax and organ, the sax had long been since gone. He brought it back.

He has global fans now. Hes not the greatest musical talent, not the greatest singer. But hes one of the top 10 songwriters of the past 50 years, one of, if not the best live performers. One of the hardest workers, he worked to get the ability he has, it didn't come easy as it did for some of the other artists out there.

Being born with minimal means and minimal talent, as i and most people I know were, it's inspiring. Work twice as hard as the next guy....

For me I wasnt that into until BITUSA came out, i liked some of his work, but that's what had me going backwards, his early albums were great.

He writes about important things. Thats what makes him different than other pop star. He writes about things only country artists used to write about like middle classness, dignity, family, faith, purpose, that's not something that typically gets covered in a 3 minute pop song. Thats the connection..... the politics i could do without.

I love Aerosmith and Heart, Steven Tyler is a great front man

Just Plain Quotes
"A lot of people will tell you that preparation is what will make you successful. But I think that people misunderstand exactly what that means sometimes. The type of preparation you need most is the kind that allows you to instantly seize an opportunity, change your course based on a momentary circumstance, and grab hold of the totally unexpected when it happens, and allow it to take you for the ride of your life! That is the kind of preparation that can lead to the most enjoyable type of success." -Brian Austin Whitney
