I just started going through a Springsteen kick because of that video. I've been revisiting some of his stuff that I heard before but didn't really like a few years ago. I gotta say I'm really enjoying a lot of it now.

Both of these guys are two the biggest dorks that ever graced an open stage.

Robert Plant was pretty much a killjoy on that one.

The Boss is so godawful. The E Street band is so average also, they can't make up for his shortcomings. The forum vote is a resounding yes for Young, so I'm gonna say the Forums taste has exceeded **** for taste.

Most of the people that have voted for Springsteen on here, I don't think are very aware of the diversity that Young offers and probably lack real knowledge of his music, hence their need to listen to a lot more of his music and his 40 plus album discography, instead of basing their opinion around a few songs here and there.

Most of the people that have voted for Young (are what I call those with real music knowledge on the forum) whereas those that have gone with Springsteen far less so (there are exceptions of course, as some of the people that have voiced opinions for Springsteen know their stuff, well 1 or 2 so I guess it's not so many)

I don't much like Bob Dylan but I recognize that members are going to like him more than Young, as the man is a legend and a great songwriter (another thread similar to this) but when it comes to Springsteen though, I'd sooner listen to John Cougar and believe me that's not saying much.

Ah c'mon American Fool was an outstanding album. I'm not taking shots at people who voted Springsteen, I think there must be some merit to the Springsteen fans, I just personally don't find his music very riveting. Hes certainly molded a very oustanding career out of writing feel good rock n roll based songs. My mom loves Springsteen so i've had to endure through the years out of a deep love for my moms cooking. Some peoples Harvest is others peoples Nebraska I get it, but my ears clearly are more taken by Youngs ability to convey so much emotion in his lyrical ability.

Sure theres an argument for Springsteen also connecting with his audience and conveying alot through his music but it never touched me the same way as Young did.

Ok I admit I do quite like that album and actually have it one vinyl, I got it when it came out.

Most of the ones I've met here in the UK, tend to be hardcore U2 fans as well and I usually tell them what **** taste they have x2 and that's normally the end of the conversation.

No disrespect to your mum, but Springsteen is just the short of artist I imagine mums would like (macho honest vocals and all)

Few artists touch emotions like Young can, but then again that's a very personal taste for a very delicate subject. But when speaking over the years to Young fans, that tends to be one of the focal points of his music.

Let me clarify my last post. I was more emphasizing that I think Bruce is a superior live performer. I thought it was neat that he just segued into that guitar solo, that's why I was talking about it.

But since you brought up guitar playing, yeah let's talk about that. Yes, I have heard Neil Young on guitar, but I do not believe Young's guitar playing is superior to Springsteen's. Part Man, Part Monkey I think is one of Springsteen's best examples of his skill with the guitar. Thundercrack, Worlds Apart, Atlantic City, and the acoustic version of Born In The U.S.A. I think put him over the top.

Neil Young and Crazy Horse might not be as technically gifted as a lot of musicians out there, but they're a damn sight more exciting to watch than half of these so-called technical wizards. Ever seen Year of the Horse film?
