Notes from

Winter 2004/2005. "Home of the Brave." Our Vote for Change special, with a full 30 pages devoted to Springsteen's October 2004 tour. Packed with exclusive color photos, in-depth reportage, and Backstreets interviews with many of Bruce's on-stage guests: Peter Buck (R.E.M.), Mike Mills (R.E.M.), Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes), and Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam), all talking about their ride down E Street. We also follow Springsteen on the stump, and talk to historian Bryan Garman (author of A Race of Singers: Whitman's Working Class Hero from Guthrie to Springsteen) to put the VFC thing in perspective. Plus: concert coverage of Light of Day 5, Flood Aid, and the Christmas jams at Harry's Roadhouse; and our usual columns and Boss news including reviews of the latest CD-Rs and Bruce boots. 56 pages, all in glorious full color.
