His parent's wanted him to be a lawyer!!!!,
This review is from: Live In Concert 1975 - 85 Bruce Springsteen & The Street Band (Audio CD)
I remember when the LP box set came out in '85...
Well now in the 21st Century you can own some of the finest American songs ever written and performed (with the grit, charm and energy you would expect from Bruce and the band)!!
The CD contains many, many highlights, "Hungry Heart", "Bobby Jean", "Rosalita", "Growin' Up" etc..
For me the highlight is not a track but Bruce's monologue before "The River".He tells of his days in his late teens how he argued with his Dad and how his Dad would say "someday son the Army will make a man of you"..Bruce gets his call up papers at the time of the Vietnam war and......well it really is powerfull, almost poetic stuff

I agree, those heartfelt words before the harmonica blast opening 'the river' gets me every time, stirring stuff and a genuinely real one-off.
