    Elite music for old people

    Post by Ned Braden on Sun Apr 13, 2014 3:21 am

    Just got back from a Springsteen show. Man... I had much fun. Very much.
    My friend had tickets and as I was walking round to meetup and pay for/get mine I bumped into my very best friend's little brother. And that brother's little brother. Who umexpectedly ended up being friends with my friends. So it was super fun and I got to be part of the Ringelstein reunion. So we did that and then we went to see
    The Boss. And holy hell was he on. I guess I know that it's a foregone conclusion and all but I was still impressed. I mean, curly shuffle on the ground while covering SHOUT and we were all doing the animal house dance motions fuck rest in peace Harold Ramis. And then they did 10th ave freezeout with a 3 minute montage of Clarence pics (rest in peace big man).
    He looked good as he'll for a 70 year old post encore he took off his long sleeved shirt and I was all "fuckin shit man! I hope I look that good whenever!"

    Then we went back to our place and I tried to get the brothers into the ween discography as they were passing out and I'm not sure it worked. Right now my dog is trying to attack my beer hand while we listen to indie rock together. Fuckin a.

    It's good to be back. Needed some time away from the internet to get my shit together, and now that I've done all that I can it's time for some springtime relaxation.

    Reading this sober for the first time and really feeling this line:

    Wanted to get deep into Bob Seger today and was pissed to find out he isn't on Spotify. I was able to get a used Night Moves on compact disc at Reckless for $5. Wished the Loop location had more Seger but at least I was able to get NM and a remastered Highway To Hell for $11.

    You can't even get a healthy lunch in Chicago for $11.

    Poz'd.  If you ever happen to run across them in deep used bins (a rare occurrence, as they're mostly out of print and pretty hard to find), I encourage you to explore the early Seger discography as well (the pre-Silver Bullet Band joints with the "Bob Seger System," like Ramblin' Gamblin' Man, Mongrel, Smokin' O.P.'s and Back in '72, which are more like straight-ahead Mitch Ryder-y garage rock than the FM Adult Crooner elitism of the Night Moves- Against the Wind run.

    Vaguely recall a "Nevermind the Bullets" comp of young Seeger tunes posted on JDFF. Good stuff. I'll try to hunt it down and up it.

    "Ship of Fools" from Night Moves is a good song. Probably good for being a man and kicking back and drinking in America to.

    Ramblin' Gamblin' Man has some choice 13th Floor Elevators ripoff ballads. Or maybe just one.

    GREAT artist!!!

    I heard Old Time Rock & Roll on the classic rock radio station yesterday, and it was a good time.

    I don't have an Uncle named Joe, but Fire Lake still reminds me of my uncles.
