Jake Clemons In A Tegelen Living Room, The Netherlands

A few weeks back Jake Clemons played in the living room of a small town I can’t pronounce in The Netherlands.

Cover Me: The Bruce Springsteen Cover Song Nightmare

Give me my favourite musician, pair him with my most loathed song ever, and drop the two into an arena in Brisbane and you’ll end up with one completely dismayed Bruce Springsteen fan. Normally I love the way Springsteen covers other artists. Adore it. It adds to that thing we crave during his concerts, the…
