There's still life in the old dog

Or - there's life in the old dog yet.

Two years ago, my wife discovered Bruce Springsteen - not in the bedroom or in a cupboard but on Youtube. Since then, our life has never been quite the same.

He's been around for over 30 years and in our youth, we were never really interested in him as he wasn't as trendy as the punk, new wave and the alternative music of the time. Well, we're older and wiser now and can see the vast range, beauty and above all, energy of his music.

His performances have always been notable for their length and physical and emotional commitment.

Imagine my wife's delight when we found out there would be a single night screening of a recent live concert in Hyde Park, London at Zloty Tarasy.

True to form, the concert lasted three hours and 'The Boss' refused to accept that he was now sixty and was determined to prove that there's life in the old dog yet.

Respect! I hope I'm as lively at 60!

Here's a clip from the concert. (Don't worry if you can't understand all the words, nobody can, it's a New Jersey accent!
