We struggled together, and sometimes, we struggled with one another. We bathed in the glory, and often, the heartbreaking confusion of our rewards together. We’ve enjoyed health, and we’ve suffered illness and aging and death together. We took care of one another when trouble knocked, and we hurt one another in big and small ways.
But in the end, we kept faith in each other. And one thing is for certain: as I said before in reference to Clarence Clemons—I told a story with the E Street Band that was, and is, bigger than I ever could have told on my own.

Why Bruce Springsteen is the best:
Cause even in my darkest hour, even when I’ve lost sight of all hope, when there’s no purpose, no answer, no will to keep going, when I feel worthless and lost, a single Springsteen song can change that. I might not learn the answer to all my questions by listening to his songs, but he’ll remind me that the answer is out there if I just pull through.
