Heh, not to be a douche but is this really necessary ? Obviously this guy has a huge following but this seems like it'd be more in place in Rolling Stone or Enterrainment Weekly. Not trying to nitpick as I'm sure you've worked hard on this but I never really associated Bruce with anything punk or even alternative.
Hmm, I've always felt Bruce had a very strong influence on punk, ie. Against Me!, Dropkick Murphy's, The Gaslight Anthem, etc. so I'd say it's still relevant. That, and a lot of us here seem to be unabashed Bruce worshipers
