Bruce Springsteen, Backstreets
It’s another one of those fantasy camping trip days, with Ray Charles, Julio Iglesias, John Coltrane, and Jason Alexander – who played George Costanza in Seinfeld – all celebrating their birthdays today. But we had to ignore them, because Bruce Springsteen is having one of the big landmark birthdays. He’s 60, damn it. 60. Hence we thought we’d get him a gift, so we sent back and forth emails suggesting presents, until it boiled down to a toss up between a rag to clean his feet with, or a clip of our favourite Springsteen song being performed live. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday, boss!
