Happy Birthday, Boss!

Well licky, licky, look who's 60!

Bruce Springsteen is celebrating the big six-O today, and we here at The Watchword wish him the happiest of birthdays. True story: My dad once helped Bruce and the E Street Band set up for a gig in Boston before he was famous! (Before Bruce was famous, I mean. My dad is still waiting for someone to discover him at the soda fountain).

As all our faithful readers know, Red is the real Bruce fan at this site, and she took a break from filming Girls Gone Wild: The Lower Ninth Ward! to send in this tribute:

"The Boss is the primary reason I fell for two fellas, neither of whom turned out to be any good for me."

Thanks for sharing, dollface.

Honestly though, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Red for showing me just how brilliant Bruce actually is. Until she came into my life, I mostly knew him as the "Glory Days" guy. And don't just take my word for it, ask Cusack:

Here's to many more, Boss!

Springstein is 60? Now I feel old. He earned the reputation for the hardest working musician of all time.
