I don't know any of his songs. I've tried to listen to him, and despite him being a super nice guy, I really don't like his sound at all. SO nowhere for me either.

As a live performer, possibly number one. As a recording artist, in the top 20.

Did you mean "3 hours singer"? The one performing at the Stade de France?

By the way, Led Zeppelin had two hit singles, both minor ones, in the UK - the first of them was in 1997. Perhaps, one day they'll make the big time.

He's tied with The Persuaders and some way behind The King and The Killer.

I admire Springsteen, both for his achievements and what he stands for, but I confess I don't particularly enjoy most of his recorded output. I like Nebraska very much, and fell head over heels for the Seeger material which has to be some of the most life-affirming music recorded in the last decade, and its mix of folk, rock, gospel and jazz being totally infectious. The fact I don't particularly like the "regular" material doesn't mean I don't appreciate it. Springsteen is great recording artists, and obviously a superb live performer, but most of his output simply isn't for me.

I heard he did a great tribute to James Gandolfini at his show in Coventry, England. He played all of 'Born To Run' and dedicated to him.


We've decided to keep him!

For me, he is #3, right after Presley and Ray Charles.

I enjoy his music, but he's not way up on my list of preferences.
