John Lennon on Bruce Springsteen

Rolling Stone releases full-length interview conducted three days before Lennon’s death in its year-end issue.

With Bruce Springsteen then the face of rock’s future, Lennon expressed fear that the Boss would fall victim to the same kind of pressures as he did. And God help Bruce Springsteen when they decide he’s no longer God. … They’ll turn on him, and I hope he survives it.”

Bruce Springsteen on John Lennon

“If it wasn’t for John Lennon, we’d all be someplace very different tonight. It’s an unreasonable world, and you get asked to live with a lot of things that are just unlivable.”

1980-12-09 – SPECTRUM, PHILADELPHIA, PA

Outstanding show features the first 1980 version of “Rendezvous” and an emotional “Twist And Shout” the day after John Lennon had been shot dead. Bruce opens the show with a spoken tribute: “I’d just like to say one thing….I appreciate it….and it’s a hard night to come out and play tonight when so much has been lost….the first record…the first record that I ever learned was a record called ‘Twist and Shout’ (cheers)…..and if it wasn’t….if it wasn’t for John Lennon, we’d all be in some place very different tonight (cheers)…. it’s….it’s an unreasonable… world and you have to live with a lot of things that are just unlivable …. and….it’s a hard thing to come out and play but there’s just nothing else you can do”.
