Adam raised an Eve

Those numbers left a lingering image of Springsteen and Scialfa as halves of a whole. And maybe that’s what really bugs the Patti haters. “It’s an amazing thing to be up there with your best friends and your wife,” Springsteen said in a November 1 Rolling Stone interview. “Your whole world is up there.” Pushing 60, the Boss has redefined the idea that rock and roll must be an escape from family, maturity, and commitment. Instead, with Scialfa by his side, he now offers up rock as a paradise where all those things can be embraced. Time to grow up, folks. Work with them.

    Paul Shaffer is a happenin’ cat. Pick an It Moment from pop culture over the past 30 years and Shaffer was there. He was an original band member on Saturday Night Live . He played hapless promo guy Artie Fufkin in This Is Spinal Tap . Disco? He co-wrote “It’s Raining Men.” And he helped David Letterman break ground as his glittery, ironic bandleader/sidekick.
