I'm gonna go ahead and guess before reading that all 10 are Bruce Springsteen.

Pretty cool read, but this is really just more of a contributing blog from Fallon if anything. Interesting to see what he has to say about these bands/songwriters though.

Spoiler: It's Bruce Springsteen.

No but seriously, he looks a lot like Tom Waits in that first picture and it's pretty fucking badass.

Wishing he mentioned the book A River Runs Through It as opposed to the movie, or at least acknowledged Norman Maclean amazing writing which was actually the real influence there. That is just me getting defensive about one of my favorite books though. Pretty obvious article. Pumped that Gaslight is heading in to record now.

Oh don't worry, there are plenty of people that don't. Don't they have a thread for them still?

Hey, it's just hard to get into anything Brian does.. I'll listen to a couple of songs but I can't get further into his music. Any suggestions?

Doesn't everyone at least kind of love Pearl Jam? I'm not sure I've ever met someone who had anything bad to say about them.
