Maybe somebody should get somebody to wave traffic around or something like that. We're a small mom and pop shop, said 10. I understand, But so I feel like nobody really cares about us, The property manager they care more about the chick fil A's than us. They've even got aerial photographs of your of the lines in things and people are complaining because Chick fil A is too popular and people are waiting in line to go to chick play. Maybe we should open up everything else and then everything would return to. Well, you know, normal. Remember normal. You know the Chris Plante store. We have t shirts and coffee mugs and things that say, Remember normal that remember normal. I think it's important that we do what we can to remember normal. It's important, more important than ever. Perhaps that we remember normal. Some of us are going to have to bring back normal. Because this isn't normal. And I tell you school kids, this is a big piece of you're 10 years old. This has already been 1/10 of your life, you know, and the most adult part of your life the last year and this is this is really forming and molding kids going forward this whole experience. And it's not a It's not a good experience. Not good at all. Not a bit, but poor Chick fil A. They're the villain because they're they're too popular And really a big part of it is because you can't dine and said The Washington Post very excited to report yesterday. Here's a picture of Barack Obama looking all relaxed and his multi million dollar I think is that Bruce Springsteen's multi million dollar mansion extra at his the state. They probably took helicopters back and forth to each other's houses. Now there's a picture of Barack Obama laughing and laughing with Bruce Springsteen, who is looking like somebody's grandfather. And the headline is Who's the Boss? I get outside. I think that's like Tony Danza is something Obama and Springsteen joined forces for new Spotify podcasts, its new Spotify podcast, former President Barack Obama and rock and roll star Bruce Springsteen. They say rock n roll. They got rock and roll there. Bruce Springsteen are renegades born in the USA. At least that's the name of their new podcast there. Renegades born in the USA Now Barack Obama's a renegade, he went to the exclusive Private Punahou School in Hawaii grew up as a member of the tomb gang smoking Hawaiian spliff on the beaches. Of Waikiki on then he went to Columbia University and Harvard Law School before the sun went down. He was in the United States Senate and before it rose. He was in the White House, and he's a renegade is that is that the think everything's alive with these people? I mean, tell you Spotify announced Monday that its new series renegades Colon, The repository of all of their genius Born in the USA isn't born in the U. S. A and anti American song. I don't really do Bruce Springsteen. I never liked him, and I can sing better than him. So that's a problem to question. You know, most people can't average bus driver can sing better than Bruce Springsteen. But Will feature Obama and Springsteen in Intimate Conversations. Woo. I think we know what we're talking about there that way, exploring a wide variety of topics, including Wait. What's the first word And what topics? Anybody raise your hand right there? Yes, you're correct Race, including race. Exploring a wide variety of top Democrats don't have a wide variety of topics. They're topics are raised class and gender. That's it so here is exploring a wide variety of topics, including race, marriage, modern manhood and how it's been severed. On and the divided State of America, which Barack Obama has contributed to very, very significantly. Very importantly, our racial division. Is that really the centerpiece of the eight Obama years in the White House? You know that this is just got to bring this up all the time, because it's important. Joe Biden Before January, 20th had never been in the upstairs of the White House, the private residence, the president's residence of the White House. He had never been. He had been vice president for eight years and in the Senate for 87 years or something. Never been invited to the president's residence in the White House, Not by Barack Obama in eight years as vice president. Not once. Hey, Joe. Want to come over for a football game or a dinner? Maybe lunch upstairs? No, Never Not once hadn't been up there, isn't it amazing? It's a personal in depth discussion between two friends. Yeah, they're good friends because they're both lefties, then never met each other before exploring their pasts, their beliefs and the country they love. It doesn't say which country that is. As it was, as it is, and as it ought to be going forward. I assume they're talking about Cuba or Iran. Maybe China. I'm not sure, Spotify said in a statement, adding that the unlikely duo I don't know that they're so unlikely have formed a deep friendships since they first met on the campaign trail in 2008. It's a deep friendship if you know what I mean. Wink wink, Obama awarded Springsteen the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2016.

"I would admit. I'm probably the weakest of the guitar players sitting at this table. Right now We all play every single song on this thing right. Oh absolutely yeah not really complicated me and to be able to fill these words to write this and make it feel the way it does. I mean that's just mastery of your crafts. There's there's nothing. I think we would all agree. There's nothing musically complicated about this in any stretch of the imagination poetically. Yeah this is th th. This is all about the lyrics and imagery and everything else this is. This is a songwriter's album. And i think that's why it was so appealing to me because i am a simple guitar player. I need the simplicity. And like i said i play. I can play ever song on this album. Along with him. Other than nebraska. Because well if you'd have to you'd have to. Sometimes i find it helps. Just drop it a couple times and the carpet and then you just kind of go from there. I i still have my first guitar. And it's dove my dovey and she stays out of tune anyway so i can play along with. It is fun you. I still have my first acoustic guitars. Alvarez and i'll play it once a year and it's still in tune really stays in tune but dissembling incredible my song. Sometimes it's a honda other. You go made fort worth texas. There's nothing worse than trying to play guitar. That's out of tune it. It'll drive you insane on it so we're trying to play along with somebody that's out of tune it was it was. I think it was jacking. Said planning guitar out of tune. It's kind of like when you're smoking. Forget what you're talking about so he references. The baby's going to take a river a baby to the river to baptism in his name. Is kyle william. My son is john william and he was almost giancarl. Really named after. Kyle field at texas and my father-in-law ended up. John wayne my and my father. That's right that's right since he's talking about your religious overtones overtones strata. This very religious. And i think it's cool is that he ends the album with this because it's all dark and then all of a sudden. Hey we're still looking for a reason to so you even though not done yet. There's meanness there's evil. They're still reason to believe the reason to go on with all the murder and the sadness and the poverty and everything else. They're still i mean and the song ends with you can get the kids got the groom getting ready to be married. We got the everybody's down there. It's still okay at the end of the day is still okay to go. You open this whole thing with talking about like the world. We live in right now recording from home because of all shutdowns half as kind of a positive thing right. There's still reason to believe it's not it's not all it's not all black. It's not all bad donald dark. Which what a perfect way to to create an album. If he'd opened with this and then giving us the rest of it we would have gone. Were plus didn't fade out and for that my friends i will give him all the credit in the world on that one. Yeah what do you think jason. I enjoyed sean right. It's a great album. This is an album that. I think we've had this one in the can for at least a couple of months. We have We i wouldn't really sure putting it together because it was much choice. I was trying to figure out. How are we gonna put this together when you said. Let's bring in hank's to do this like that's it kind of came together. Yeah absolutely yeah. Thanks for being here man. Because you're really. Your input was really a lot of fun. Yeah thank you had lots of conversation definitely some things that neither one of us knew which as far as music goes which is cool so well in the great. The great thing about this whole project was when we talked about this. this was talking about tunes. And what are we like to do more than anything with anybody else. Talked to somebody that we wonder why are trying to do real work tune so but now this like i said this album really man again. A shout out to my bud add for just introduced me to this album because and and it was all about timing because like i said if it came five years earlier probably never listened to the album again. You know so. Thank thank the music comes to you when you need it to come to you. So that's a good point. I agree with you on that. Well we appreciate so much listening to us. Today this has been bruce springsteen's album nebraska. Jason preached coming in if we look forward to many more conversations talking about some of our favorite albums. Thanks for hanging with.

Rust belt and poor people This is not a happy. Go lucky music right. I i noted that. Allow these Jason's actually administer in a jason plays music church. I'd noted jason that a lot of these southern him so they do in there is a There's some religious themes in some of these songs. Sure sure it is. Yeah there is. That's a that's a good point. It's almost like multifaceted where he's throwing the religious out there almost like taunting yet. I kind of like the antithesis of religion like instead of hope. He's using that him theme thematically in a way that is kind of like the anti him right now this anti him. It's still kind of with that. Whole southern him. Sound where you could be again. Ged southern hills really hard by this could sound like a song. That's right out of a church on sunday right. Sure sure. I think so. Yeah a lot of it's It has style of telling you know telling the story and there's a moral. There's a moral behind it if you will absolutely so as we go through. I'll make a couple of notes Specifically i'll tell you what instruments he's playing. It's going to be very very stark though. It's it's all bruce It's all this is kind of funny because we're kind of on this album. Were out of my normal like one like my normal. The things that i like to talk about which is okay so here. We're listening to this. Is the bass guitar drums. And this is the stuff that i'm guitar player super excited about. There's not any of that in. I mean we're really. We're literally stripped down to the bare essence of the song. Plus the occasional blockage bill occasional bills education at jason. I would i would counter that. That i think this may be more your style than you you even realize. How many times do you walk through this office and with a guitar working out a song. Oh sure sure. That's what this says. He was working. This songs that these were not meant to be finished products. He was working on. He's worked on songs and they turned out to be Altogether one piece of art. Yeah was just kinda working stuff. That's a fair point one. And you're you're the one that introduced me to mercury and i mean this like we said earlier. I mean this has so much jamie mercury feel to do. But i didn't know james look at me. We play at. What was the murphy song. We played Stained cliffs lament staying close. Sleman just listened to that the other day man. I haven't heard that in a long time. But but that's so this album is one of those that if you're not a if you're not a fan of the lyrics you're probably not gonna lock out. You've gotta deepen the lyrics. Yeah i always say. I love melody but with this. You've gotta listen really really hard with what's happened here. There's a lot of stuff happened past all his instrumentation which is stark passed. all of his You know the fact that the it sounds like something southern he sings with this. The southern accent which is again weird for gaffer new jersey rat. This guy who's telling the story and you better listen to these stories. So this is a stripped down singer-songwriter just about as you could possibly get an even as much as like mercury His albums very. I've seen him play acoustic before and he's he does a great job but his albums tend to have more production value in backing band and everything else so this. He doesn't release a lot of albums songs of him and a guitar. But this i mean this is absolutely up my alley. Because i love those district right now. This is one of my favorite shows or guitar. And when we were talking about this we were. We were saying if we're going to bring in hank's for you know our our idea. We started putting. This together was at some point. We're gonna have buddies music but he's come in and talk to us when we do this in the reason we wanna have you. I was as a singer songwriter. This is right. This is jason. Thanks man this is really ladies and gentlemen this is bruce springsteen's nebraska starts off with the title track and so once again. This is the The song about emerged about you.

"When did you first start playing piano I was really young. My my aunt had a piano in her foyer and we would visit my Italian grandmother who lived to be a hundred years old every Sunday and so when my mother was upstairs with her mother because they only spoke Italian I was downstairs in the way tinkering around on my aunt's piano and she I started to make some noise out of it and so. She said here I'm going to give you a key to the house and when you leave school if you want, you can come into the house and play the piano, and so I started to come home from school and I go to my aunt's house nobody was there and I would just start practicing the piano I was in my teens and I became a relatively proficient accompanist nothing special but I can accompany myself relatively well. You said You wrote the songs for Boyne to run on the piano is that is that typical for you or is that unusual to write a whole album on piano? I haven't done it in a long time. This record letter to you was primarily on guitar back in that wrote racing in the street or song racing industry was on Piano I. Probably that was that was a bit of a unique record in that I wrote a lot of if you go back in here, all the musical introductions and things you'll see how it was piano based. How many songs have you written that you haven't released Oh At least one hundred wow era and we already put out a big six seventy bucks set of of stuff from the vault ten years ago. But I still have tons of stuff left. Are you writing all the time No I write very rarely and I didn't write a rock song in seven years before I wrote this batch in ten days. So I right when the writing is there and when I'm sort of inspired and I don't worry about not writing. You'd never had that kind of crisis moment panic moment when you think the well is dry of course, you have that all the time. But you said you never worry about not writing. You manage your anxiety well, is that it? Yeah I had that all the time and I'm used to that feeling you. Know. So so in a sense when I feel like that and you always feel like that after you've written a good Song Oh i. hope that's not the last one you know but I've Kinda gotten used to that being part of the natural state of writers consciousness. In that it's such a magic trick and you. And you are. It's so out of your control even after all the craft that you've learned that you just don't know how you do it and so. I can sit here and say, Gee, I'd like to ride a nother album. But. I know it'll come along at some point I don't know how when so I'm both I guess the best way to explain it was I'm comfortable with the anxiety. Does it you should come with one song is that is that how it starts if you haven't written for awhile will Asong. It'll come with a song and if it's a good song and if it's Working around a theme, you haven't worked before like what I did on this record I took as my subject music itself and rock and roll itself as an idea and The ideas of bans themselves as an idea, and I've never written about that subject before. So when I locked onto that first thing, I realized there was a small but deep well of other songs that I that I had in things I had to say about that idea and about the passing of time and losing ban members and losing old friends and what it's like at this age to be doing in my line of work. So. Yeah. If you're lucky, you know you'll you'll lot lock onto something and and and more than, and you'll tap a little vein and more than one song will come out. Did the subject matter come before the first song or did the song come and give you the subject matter the circumstances came before the song I had a very close friend who passed away who was. The last besides me was the last member of my first band. So let me as the only surviving member. And I thought about that a lot. I didn't think about it in the sense. Okay. Now I'm gonNA write some music about this but I thought about it a lot and then it song came out you know you'll strange things happened I had kid give me a guitar outside of the Broadway Theatre and an Italian kid was standing air one night and he had a guitarist and I thought he wanted me to sign it so. This is no no no. No boost. This is this is for you. We had a made for you. And I took it and on the way home I looked at it and it was made from beautiful. Would it played gorgeous and sounded wonderful I left it in my living room. And that was the guitar that most of the songs came out of so. It was another bit of lucky happened stance. You know would you say most of the album's had a triggering moment like either Some. Life experience that starts the first song that leads to the journey of the album. The I would say that perhaps you know but also it's sort of like you. You you start your car and it runs. Great an album comes out you start your car it runs for a half an hour breaks down. Doesn't run for two weeks started again we're. We're. We're. We're we're nothing again rewrote nothing records of made like that. You know I've I've written a Song I've written six songs that I think are really. Record Worthy, and then spent a year trying to write six more. So. So it's simply not predictable and you have to get used to withstanding that anxiety and you have to get comfortable with it because born in the USA I think I wrote eight or nine of those songs and then. And then spent a year waiting for dancing in the dark bobby. Jean and surrender and. That was just the way it went didn't have an album until I had that music. Even if I had nine good song sitting there, we'll be back with more from Bruce springsteen after a quick break. We're back with the rest of Rick Rubin and Malcolm Glad Conversation with Bruce Springsteen, how many people were in the original band? The original e street band was a five piece band. There was one keyboard no yeah. One keyboard and then I play keyboards sometimes, there was a keyboard guitar player a base player a drummer in a saxophonist it was a little club. Rock and soul band, and when did it start expanding the last time? I saw you play I. Think there were if felt like there were more people on stage and I could count the last time I thought. We might have carried horns, horns and singers on that tour generally the band the stable. Membership of the band is Myself Stevens on the Guitar Nils Lofgren on the Guitar Gary Talent on the Base my ex Weinberg on drums Charlie. Giordano. On the Organ Roy Bitten on the piano and Jay Clemens on the saxophone. That's nine people and that's the hard core, the e street band now. Do. You recall what was going on the first time you decided.

We could've seen faneuil hall we could have seen the old North Church. No, they took us out to some industrial part. Of. Massachusetts and they showed us the wonder bread factory and they said, we have a surprise for you at the end. We each got a paper hat that said wonder bread on. And I swear to God mine they dissolved instantly when we went outside. out a wonder, it was made out of wonder bread I think was the it was made out of an this day I'm like.

"Why? Why why would we ski? We're seventy? Sold out of my ass, break my leg. Why would I go up the mountain just to come down again it? Just didn't make sense to me. Suddenly you know I wanna ask you about the casteel because they're an important part of this album you looking back especially song last man standing when you're growing up in New Jersey. You belonged in freehold to this group that gets deals. Yes and this was your band and when you look at it to be that young this ban lasted through the prime years of the sixties. Yeah. There was a long time for a bunch of teenagers to stay together. It's very rare. It was a quite a long time and I learned an enormous amount of my crafts while in that band and deep feelings for it, and for that time in my life you know but. Was Rare to stay together that long were you guys was a cover band primarily used? Over, band, and we had a few original. Do you remember what was the Go-to Song? Like this is the song we do. That's maybe our best go to cover song. Do you have a memory of what that might have been through blow the roof off the house? We did hellacious version of them. So van Morrison Mystic is Oh my God that's fantastic. Not a very, well known song, but I used to front and play the harmonica and move out like a madman on mystic is you credit your time in the steals put you out in front of live audiences in union halls in vfw name it potluck dinner halls it puts you out there. Every you everything you guys played everything and you learned to play live, which is something maybe that doesn't happen as much today for young artists. Well, you know there are still people who play great live shows as great live performers out there that at at every level in the clubs and theaters in. Rain. Is You know but it is it a vanishing skill I. Don't think it will ever vanish, but it's it's certainly been. It has a lot of competition from the Internet and since and social media and a variety of other things but at the end of the day. That act of getting people in a room and a band on stage, which is an act that will never be simulated. Is a powerful powerful experience and to feel we don't have them yet. We gotTA got him or they're starting to come around. Let's really lay it on. Now. That's fine of muscle that you learned when you were in high school with steals that I think you've just kept honing in honing in honing. We were doing four. You're set the record I think four hours and six minutes for a concert. When you think about the Beatles in their live performing days when they were, you know huge man I think they do twenty twenty five minute shows. That wasn't so bad.

"Well. Okay. So got one and you've got four. I've got. Nobody you is there something to and I I think great celebrity autobiographies are extremely rare and yours I thought was a beautiful piece of writing and also I learned so much about your relationship with your father contrasting that with your mother and your grandmother and thinking and and people probably don't WanNa hear this. But maybe that has to be part of the equation. Well, I believe that the most successful obsessive. I think the guys that we think of who have something very special eating at them, and that's what makes them interesting to us. There is an undescribable problem at their center that they're constantly sorting trying to sort out. It's not completely sort out. But. You can't find elements of clues that bring you closer to the source as life, and this is how people are using their craft. This is why you can't take your eyes off some or or your ears and those people have had someone in their life who has told them. They are the second coming of Christ and at the same time someone in their life who's told them they are absolutely worthless and they believed them both and so consequently, you're in the process of. Trying to retrieve the unconditional love that you experienced by the parent. He told you were holier than thou and try to prove to your other powered. How deeply wrong they were so This I believe is a is a psychological makeup of most mode of the most interesting artists I would say like not tra hero Brando Dylan Hank Williams, all of those people I believe have some piece of this in their creative equation. So yeah, I think it's essential myself. I think that kind of historical conflict in your family is very, very critical. Then add into it eight years of Catholic education the furnace is starting to burn. There are many people that would think to watch bruce and the e street band. Record or to watch bruce work would be just to watch these guys having a ball. That is not true. said it is both the most important thing in your life and it's only rock and roll and you've got to inhabit both what is essential as you become an adult is you have to refine the ability to hold two contradictory ideas in your mind at the same time and without it driving you crazy. That is the mark of adulthood. So there's a lot of things in life you know it's like one. When we go out on stage at night more out for murder you know we are out there to burn it down until you go home smiling and arden you know. But the day that's right a roll music curing cancer. So. That's the best we can do you know and and so we and so we do it. You know but keeping those two ideas in your head simultaneously. Allows you to reach far into the heavens as your spirit. Soul hopes and fears will allow while at the same time staying say. Some relatively bet on steer honor it's a next to impossible combination I've heard Lincoln Abraham. Lincoln was described that way as they said, mark of his intelligence was that he could hold to completely contrasting ideas in his head of time I think that added to his his greatness and I think that is yeah, that's adulthood. I love my kids and occasionally. They make me want to jump out a window. To contain both those ideas if you can acknowledge them. Will bring you some peace. Quiet your mind, which is something that most artists. Don't possess you know. This is not the nature of artists to possess a quiet mind but but getting something small things like that straight. I found I found it did it did bring some peace into my daily life? Do you think you've mellowed at all or do you think because you were guests? You might say Yeah I've mellowed with age and not just age but the accomplishments that boggle the mind. But maybe the same time I don't believe that you've mellowed nearly as much as other people would have mellowed that would have experienced. You're kind of success. Sort of all depends how you're using the term I think if you asked my wife, she would say that I have mellowed in some ways that were. I think the destructive parts of my character hold less sway over me than they did twenty five years ago. So that's a good thing, my raw intensity at approaching my work in my job. I. Haven't mellowed at all and that's that's the way I like to keep that you know, and that's and that's an area where a not mellowing is a good thing. There's other areas you know it doesn't work the same way across the board. There's other areas where want life better mental.

Of course you're immediately pulled out of the year you the inside of your head and it immediately immediately changes your frame of mind. I've I've never been on stage where I've not true. I have been on stage on a few occasions where I felt. I couldn't escape the interior of my my interior thoughts but uh Peter Wolf once said. What's the strangest thing you can do on stage? Think about what Nothing where you can do. If you're up there thinking about what you're doing you're just not there and it's not going to happen so trying to learn how to overcome those which is a normal thing to do. You're in front of a lot of people. People are going to get very self conscious so you have to learn to sort of overcome that tendency toward self consciousness end just blow it wide open and you jump in and join join all those people that are out there enjoying what you're doing together together During the depression there's a period of a year and a half when you weren't on the road with one of your sons guess with your youngest and did that contribute to the depression because you couldn't be on stage and you couldn't have that kind of experience tend to be not my own best company.

My son was in his last year of high school. And and it was kind of my last opportunity to to be here with him in the House and and wanted to get that right as you mentioned in your book you. You wanted to write songs that you wouldn't outgrow that you could sing as as an adult kids in you know done accomplished born. You're seeing some of your early songs now as you still do like born to run. Does those assange a different meaning to you than it did. When you first started forming we just had a series of concerts where the show was very interesting? Because we'd start with my earliest material curiel and we played about half a record off of our of our first record and then half or three quarters of the second record so going back to my earliest music and singing my earliest songs that I wrote when I was twenty two and it was funny that they just fit perfectly. Well you know there is a sort of gathered the years up as time passes and you can revisit the wonderful thing about my job as you can revisit at your twenty two year old self your twenty four year old self any particular night you want songs pick up some extra resonance. I hope nope but they're still there there. And I can revisit that period of my life when I choose so it's quite a nice experience in and The songs themselves broaden out as time passes and take on subtly different meanings take on a little more meaning I find What's an example of a song? Let's take on a different meaning or more meaning for you. A lot of the ones that are people's favorites in born to run I that expands every time we go out. It just seems to be more of your life fills it in fills in the story and when we hit it every night. It's always a huge catharsis. It's fascinating to see the audience singing it back to me It's quite wonderful In people that intensely singing your song as someone who grew up in Brooklyn and now lives in Philadelphia. I love that you've continued to live in New Jersey not only only New Jersey but not far from where you grew up. Why have you stayed close to the home that your father left your father went to teenager? It is it's rather ironic but I just felt very comfortable here and I was uncomfortable with city life. I was was more or less a kid that came out of a small town and I was beach bomb and and love EA- ocean and loved the Sun and like the people that were here alike to I was when I was here. I wanted to continue writing about the things that I felt. Were important in those. Those things were pretty much here. Felt like a lot of my heroes from the past lost themselves in in different ways once they had a certain amount of success and I was nervous about that and I wanted to remain grounded and Living in this part of New Jersey was something that was it was essential to who I was and continues to this day to be to be that way.

"Built it to suit him to some degree I was looking for when I was looking for voice to mix with my voice. I put on my father's work close as I say in the book. Oh Can I. And I went to work whether it was the result of wanting to emulate him so I felt closer whether it was I want aren't as I say in the book. I wanted to be reasonable. Voice of revenge for what his his life come to. It was all of these this things and It was an unusual creation but it but most of these most people stage personas are creative out of the flotsam and Jetsam there Internal geography. And they're trying to. They're trying to create something that solves a series is a very complex problems inside of them or in their history. And I think when I- annoyingly when I want to do that that's what I was. I was trying integrate all of these very difficult things that I've been unable to integrate in my life. And in my life with my parents Bruce springsteen speaking with Terry Gross in two thousand sixteen more after a break this is fresh air support for this podcast and the following message come from the American Jewish World Service working together for more than thirty years to build a more just and equitable world learn more at age. Aws Dot Org. This is Terry Gross. The host of fresh I share from whyy and NPR. We do long form interviews with journalists breaking the big news stories and with the authors filmmakers and musicians behind find the best in pop culture. So listen and subscribe. Let's get back to Terry's twenty sixteen interview with Bruce Springsteen during your earlier's musician you were Asbury very park. Boardwalk carnival atmosphere What did you love about that kind of urban beach? uh-huh yeah and you know Madame Marie and all of the like all the boardwalk regulars. You made great stories out of those characters lead songs that are less characters but what what appealed to you about about knowing them in writing about them. It was just my location at the time I didn't move to Asbury with the thought of you. Know it wasn't an anthropological But I went in and I just fit in there as Berry. Okay was down on its luck but not as bad as it would get and so there was a lot of room to move clubs were opened on five. AM There were gay clubs in even the late sixties. It was a bit of an open city. So as young. Ne'er or do wells. We fit very you know we fit very comfortably in that picture and then when I went to write I just wrote about what was around me. It fired my imagination. It was of course was a colorful locale. The city was filled with characters and plenty of people that loose ends and so it would just just became a very natural thing to write about. I didn't give it too much thought at the time but I did think that it gave me a very individual identity. Not and that. If I was going to go out into the musical world on a national level I was very interested in being connected to my home own. My Home State. Wasn't anyone else writing in this way about these things at that time so it was something I did adver intentionally in the sense as creating a certain very very specific and original identity. And that's one of the things that really interests me in comparing Dan you too dylan because when you first started people comparing to Dylan. One of the new Dylan's thing in some ways like persona wiser. The opposite he changed his name. He surrounded himself in mystery. His lyrics are very Obscure your lyrics. Tell stories you all about a plate eight you reveal so much about yourself in the world around you in your songs that you know what I mean like. I know I know that that you're more art than what you literally tell us about in songs but still you have an identity and tell us something of who you are in your sauce. Just go we're your psychology leads you. I think you know a voice. Love the fact that Bob's been able to sustain his mystery over fifty or sixty years is that's in this day and age that's quite a feat in itself and you know the things that I loved about Bob's music and I describe in the book is the father of my country three which he really is Were things that just didn't fit when I went to do my job. You know I'd come out of Tim. What different circumstance and Shoe the close just didn't fit. I want to quote you again. See she right this towards the beginning of your career. I wanted to be a voice that reflected experience and the world I live in so I knew in Nineteen seventy-two to do this. I would need to ride very well and and more individually than I had ever written before And this was it some point you realized to that although you had like the most popular bar are banned in Asbury Park and there was a bigger world there was a lot of talented people and in order to be someone in the world to have a career to make a difference prince that you had to figure out what was unique about you and you had to write great songs and in fact you achieve that you wrote great songs but you know How did you go about trying to write the best songs that you could? I mean when you when you knew there are a lot of this was going to depend on the songwriting when I thought thought about signing record deal or or writing something that Might put me in the position because I'd already had plenty of things that had fallen through with my rock band's I looked at myself and I said well you know I can sing. I'm not the greatest singer in the world. I can play guitar very well. But I'm not the greatest guitar player in the world What what excites me about a lot of the artists? I love when I realized well. They created their own personal world that I could enter into through their music and through their songwriting There's people that can do it instrumentally. You're mentally like Jimi Hendrix edge of Youtube or P townsend. I didn't have as unique a purely musical signature. I was a creature of a lot of different influences and so I said well if I'm going to project an individuality is going to have to be in my writing at the time for one of the few times in my life. I didn't have a band. I just had myself in the guitar so I was going to have have to do something with just my voice just the guitar and just my songs that was going to move someone enough to give me a shot so I wrote songs that were very lyrically alive in lyrically dense and They were unique but it it really came out of the motivation. To R- understood it was I was going to have to make my mark that way. Bruce springsteen speaking with Terry Gross in two thousand sixteen more after a break.

"Robert Mapplethorpe did the very iconic photograph for the cover of horses. Would you briefly describe the the photo. Well it's very a classic photograph by Robert Very Simple. I'm standing against a white wall all with a triangular shadow and dressed in the clothes. Typical of myself thin and Just an old white shirt a clean old white shirt Sort of a black ribbon that symbolizes a tie or CRAVAT Black Pants Jacket slung over my shoulder looking directly at Robert it's Has a little bit of little bit of Baudelaire little bit of Catholic boy a little bit of Frank Sinatra and a lot of Robert. What impact do you think that photo hat on how people perceive you well I you know I. I don't know I know people really liked it. I know the record company. Didn't they didn't let such a great photo. Why didn't the record company like it because my hair was messy because You know it just. It was a little incomprehensible sensible to to them at the time but I fought for it and They did try to air. Brush my hair but I made sure that was yes fixed people were very upset constantly about my appearance when I was young I don't know what what it was. You know they just just. It was very hard for them to factor. But I've always had. That problem is even as a child. You Know I. I used to go to the beach when I was a little kid. And just is one where my dungarees and a flannel shirt and the whole time people would be. Why are you wearing that? Why don't you get a bathing suit? You know why it's like. Leave me alone this this is just like I'm not bothering you. Why are you worried about you know what I looked like? You know. It's just I'm not trying to bother anybody but But people love the photograph. The people on the streets loved the photograph and It gave Robert Some instant attention. I think it was his. You know the where he it really helped launch his work into the public consciousness and And so we were both very happy about that and the funniest thing and sort of the sweetest thing was when I started performing after the record came out I would go to clubs anywhere could be. Denmark could be in Youngstown. Ohio and I would come on stage and at least half of the kids had white shirts and black ties on was it was it was Kinda cool. We were all. We all had suddenly turned Catholic. You write that you know when when Mapplethorpe died of AIDS in March of eighty nine the morning that he died. You describe your feelings and you say that you were shuttering overwhelmed by a sense of excitement acceleration as if because of the closeness that you experience with Robert you're to be privy to his new adventure the miracle of his death. You say this wild sensation stay with you for some days. Could you they describe that. Did you know he was dying when you did. Have you gotten the phone call when you felt this. Or you're just feeling this. You know without even know. I felt that after he died after he died I had already received the call that he had died. I mean we knew that he was dying. We knew that he was dying the last couple of weeks of his life. I talked to him Tom. I talked to Robert in the last hour that he could still speak and I listened to his breathing before I went to sleep. His brother called me and let me listen to his breathing and he died that morning. So that sensation that I felt was his You know acceleration into his next place after death. I could really feel that. I've experienced a lot of death since Robert. I sat with Allen Ginsberg when he died I was with my husband when he died. My parents but Robert the acceleration in energy. I felt after Robert's death was unique. And it did stay with me for quite a while and I think that each of us you know our energy leaves in a different way. According to the person you know according to the energy the person the the the way the spirit manifests. Each of us die died differently and we have You know I believe that I believe we all have a unique journey whether it's a journey of pure energy if there's any intelligence within the journey but I think each of us have our own way of of dissipating or entering a new field. You say that one of the people who you were with when he died was Allen Ginsberg and in your memoir you mentioned some advice that Ginsberg had given you after your husband died he said let go of the spirit of the departed and continue your life's celebration Having experienced as much Beth with death as you have. Is that good advice. Do you think yes. I mean I think that The idea that time heals all wounds is not really true. Our wounds aren't really ever healed. We just learned to Walk with them. We learned that some days. We're GONNA feel intense pain all over again and we and we just have to say okay. Okay I know you if you can come along with me today in the same way that sometimes we start laughing out in the middle of nowhere remembering something that happened with someone we've lost and life is the best thing that we have. We have a life. We each have to negotiate it navigate. It and I think it's very important that we Enjoy our life that we get everything we can out of it and it doesn't take away from a our love departed. I mean I I take Fred along with me in the things that I do or Robert or my father or my mother. You know whoever wants to come along they can be with me and you know if I want them I can sense them. You know we we We have our own life but we we we can still walk with the people that we miss or the that we lose and I think it's very important to Not Not be afraid to experience joy in the middle of sorrow. Because you know that's what our life is you know our it's the fearful symmetry symmetry of Blake. You know joy and sorrow. You don't WanNa just feel wanted them. They're both they're both valuable to the Spirit Patti Smith thank you so much for talking with us. Oh you're welcome nice to talk to you too. Poet Songwriter and performer.
