Bruce Springsteen, who will be performing the half-time show at the Super Bowl has himself a little problem with Big Left.
Springsteen or Springsteen’s people made a deal with Wal-Mart this month to exclusively sell Springsteen’s greatest hit CD.
Springsteen, for his part said it was a mistake and that he shouldn’t have made the deal with Wal-Mart.
"It was a mistake. Our batting average is usually very good, but we missed that one. Fans will call you on that stuff, as it should be."
How one is not cognizant that one is inking a deal with what is not only one of the largest retail chains on the planet but also the Great Satan of unorganized, cut-throat capitalism is a difficult concept for our brain to wrap around.
But, hey, its cool, Bruce. Just look at this as an opportunity for wider distribution and access to your songs of freedom and card checks for the lumpen, mouth-breathing masses of the outer rings.
We’re looking forward to Bruce going old school this evening. “Rosalita” and “Tenth Avenue Freeze-out” are tops on our list.
