The Greatest Check I Ever Cut

To Bruce Springsteen, for permission to quote from his lyrics in my book, Hitless Wonder.

Without Springsteen, there’d be no book about Watershed. There’s be no Watershed period. Without Springsteen, I’d probably be twenty pounds heavier. I’d certainly be a whole lot dumber. I’d know much less about life and love and how hard and beautiful both can be. But most of all I want to thank Springsteen for teaching me the difference between the guys that die little by little, piece by piece–and the guys that come home from work and wash up. And go racing in the street.

One thought on “The Greatest Check I Ever Cut

  1. I think it’s only fitting that the ‘shed pay tribute to The Boss at next week’s show and throw “Born To Run” in the set. It should also be noted that I prefer your version over the original (is that rock n’ roll blapshemy?).

    Looking forward to the show…
