Well he sings it okay, and I realize artists like to try different things, but this doesn't work for me, because I don't think the song suits him. Bruce is a great artist and the first thing that comes to mind when I think of him is passion; of which there's very little here.

I think what makes satan so attractive to others is
that he tastes like chocolate...
....and he played real drums

He doesn't need to jump the shark.

I thought he did a great version of it, I'm not crazy about the album though

Actually it's a good version of this song. Artists often cover songs they really enjoyed during their careers. "Jumping the shark" means that the show or artist is having trouble and doing a "desparation" move. This couldn't be further from that at all. Just a very famous artist giving a nod to a song he liked that he didn't write. No more, no less.

The guy that wrote that is named Larry Weiss, and he lives here in Nashville. I see him all the time at the Grocery store. One of my favorite NAshville experiences, happened about 8 years ago. We were having a giant yard party at the home of DOAK TURNER, who is a huge Nashville networker. It was during the TIN PAN SOUTH week and there were about 400 writers, artists, hangers ons, playing at Doak's house. The party, usally done on every Third Sunday, was a special one called THE GUITAR BE QUE! And had become a well known tradition on the Sunday before most people went home from out of town or finished their week of shows.

I happened to be up on the deck with about 50 people, having an in the round "guitar pull with maybe 200 in the yard. As different people came in and out, I was sort of the leader of the round and would invite other people in. One of them was Larry Wiess. He sat down at the keyboard, and did RHINESTONE COWBOY. It was great, everyone sang and even more people crowded on to the patio to watch. So we now had about 150 people all over and all I could think of was that time in Chicago, where those hundreds of people were on this outside balcony,and it collapsed due to all the weight.

So that had ramped up everything and I thought "well if we are going to go out here, let's make it REALLY COOL! Because standing right next to me was Gunner Nelson, the son of Rick Nelson, and the guitar player Denny Sarokin, who played for years in the Stone Canyon band. So well did GARDEN PARTY, and once again everyone sang along and had a great time. And the ethereal experience of hearing Rick's son sing that song was amazing. So two back to back legendary songs, songwriters, legacies and a ton of people (literally) all experiencing a lifetime memory.

No, the balcony didn't collapse, but I was pretty quick to get off of it after those two songs! LOL!

I'll have to tell Larry about this when I see him at the store.

Wow, I thought Glenn Campbell wrote it. I had that 45 probably the only country song I had in my collection at the time, I listened to it hundreds of times, I thought it was great. That little escalating chord what is that a diminished chord? The tabs say 7th but it sounds more exciting than that

I loved the song, still do. Great story too.

No, Glen didn't write that one. Larry Weiss was/is a writer out of New York, in his 70's now. I had met him a few times around town, and we actually were on a couple of committees for NSAI and Songwriter Guild things. He went to Congress with us in 2006. He wrote it solo, but I can't really remember the story of how it got to Glen. Glen had gone through a kind a really wild streak with Tanya Tucker, and had not had a hit in a while. That movie "RHINESTONE COWBOY" came out with Willie, Robert Redford, and Jane Fonda, and there was a lot of "Rhinestone cowboys" that were around at that time, mid 70's. I think Larry was around the New York Glitterati at that time that had come out of the Brill building writers and had done things on Broadway. (I think, to be honest, a lot of stories run together and I could be having his story completely mixed up with someone else. But he did tell it to some of the Congressmen, and I'm pretty sure that was it.)

I didn't spend a lot of time with him there because we were all going to different Congresspeople and Sentators, offices. I was from the South,and I went to Jeff Sessions office cause he was from Alabama like me. Larry was from New York and I believe he went to Shumer's. We were all trying to make them cry over how little money songwriters were making, by telling them our hard luck stories and playing some of their favorite songs. It really worked well as about 250 signed on to our "songwriter caucus", a lot of the results we've seen on things like the Music Modernization act that was passed not long ago.

I didn't play in the offices, I was there for the cocktail party later, and since I was the loudest, it was my job to shut them all up when they got too drunk. And that worked too. But if you think Nashville songwriter's can drink, WE'VE GOT NOTHING ON THE DC TYPES!

But it was cool seeing him do that song on Congress and how all those people who had grown up with it, all got emotional when we all played. Was a really cool time. And it was a fun thing to be able to bring him up at that party for a bunch of out of town (and in town) people to be able to have one of those special "only in Nashville" moments.

It was a great record for Glen and obviously, the Boss thought so too.

Ha, if you were crying for songwriters back then, what would would do today, lol roll over....

Figures a guy from New York would write a song like that.

Wichita Lineman is another favorite Campbell tune, I know Jimmy Webb wrote that one. Awesomeness.

Well, when you have a line about "walking the streets of Broadway..." it's pretty much about New York. So yes, a New Yorker fit that one perfectly.

Bruce just likes playing all kinds of music. Last time I saw him, he closed with half an hour of Irish jigs and stuff just for the joy of it. He has nothing to prove. He can just have fun.
