It's pizza concerts you know that it would be the evidence they did actually go to I went to court. And that one and one that I had to win because -- didn't win meant that the security guard. Which consume media probably teach me to the state but the fact of the matter is that he was strangling your kid. And I grab them by a shirt.

At the phantom Barbeque festival coming up in June. Absolutely. And thank you mentioned that you turning fifty. Oh please thank you thank you. I'm glad. Yeah CEO Greg -- are mentioning that work but thank you for mentioning that show that he's in his thirty kids that the. In theaters yet -- LB just LB just turned fifty if you can believe that I mean think back to a -- watched him play for the Bruins and now he's fifty years old. I try to make me feel better or worse. -- you're so successful lines that has interviewed used to do you tend to. You don't know what the funniest thing is an an incident on Twitter at the American people I talk -- wouldn't think. It seems to make them feel. Then that makes me feel -- -- started to cool yeah. I think if you look too bad for you know yeah I never I never -- -- Well it's because people. People don't think the UH so they're like oh my god -- there it's fifty I must be fifty highlight out of president you know it's. Rocker or are we want one that's right that's guy. Well as -- I mean do you do you people always ask me this about it I happen. I this'll just you know totally infuriate you but I happen -- capital of Bruce Springsteen's. So. Okay good so. -- people always say I can't believe that Bruce can perform the way he performs at sixty whatever he has. You -- -- is it is an issue for you at all I mean that is is it harder to do you know of the show. Like to something brilliant at. Why did one thing brilliant at the beginning of of the muddy muddy Boston's I got a guy up -- all my dancing forming. It now go. And lets -- lets you break. You know I'm good because like stand there and Ben does all the dancing and that. You know they think wow. He looks so beyond edit change that. Clean up at the the take a Dylan's back pillar something that before the show little smoke and mirrors baby to a smaller mirrors that but the. Bruce Springsteen incredible to see who would replace Fenway Park yes. That was sent that to that was fantastic. I'm an enormous street intent. Listen people make -- enemy. You know I did that there's just no artist that gives that much during a shell I in in even you would say that as an artist correct. I completely an ounce plastic and these incredible songwriter. Where. You can't into. He can't compare and MM I've always been inspired by I try to read about Austin a way that he writes about futures scene where he's strong. In addition to him and you know I mean it's harder it's hard to be a working class act from Boston and not allowed a working class action from another trust. Well it's funny when you think of you know EE you guys is Scott Cole are you think of drop kicks punk like you know Ken Casey who lives for Bruce Springsteen -- you would think it wouldn't be that way you know you need to think because Bruce is the if it you know the opposite of that you know. -- -- I I have to argue with I think he's east east the epitome of I think he's. He's working class and exactly everything that dropped expand or he's not you know. I mean that the kind of -- we love is is is the crash where where density. In Spain and just travel a lot like that -- Springsteen says things. And I've been saying about it you know what -- sixteenths in order in the USA. You know he he wasn't -- sink -- you know. -- -- in this great country and let the police again if our country can do that it maintained -- Glad everybody everybody got that except Ronald Reagan yeah I. The did that. Here here you say it and then and but that I think British -- it's just that I think everything that that guys like me Canon dropped -- Stand ore which is is you know what there's an injustice and there's you know any quality if there's. Something wrong. And let's point it out and and lets you know. That's the big -- that make mention. So. Palin you're asked your great as bill Haley in that was -- eight at miniseries whatever that.
