This guy is great! Ask how much Bruce plays Darkness on the Edge of Town. I've always heard him play in about 5 shows. I believe it to be Bruce's favorite Bruce song and hence my favorite Bruce song. WHat's his favorite Bruce song?

I'm on my way out to Highway 9. No joke, it's about 10 minutes from my house. The only thing that's going to spring from any cages is toothpaste, yogurt, breakfast cereal, and milk.

Sounds better in the song, doesn't it???
