  • Kyle from Belleville, CanadaBut he insists on playing Bobby Jean or Dancing In The Dark all the time? This song is on the same level as those ones...
  • Mark from Worcester, MiI think he doesn't play it more often cuz it's just a jam. He's always looking for a few songs to get the guitars dueling, and to let all hell break out at the close of his concerts, but lately he chooses songs that have some sort of point to make. Land of Hope and Dreams for instance, or American Land.
  • Kyle from Belleville, CanadaI don't know why Bruce don't play this one more often...
