The B Street Band

So, Trumplethinskin is actually going to have music at his little hate bash next week.

Except it's a tribute band.

New Jersey's own B-Street Band. They play Springsteen music as a tribute to the Boss.

The fact that they are playing for The Inaguration is pretty galling to Springsteen fans and most certainly makes Bruce's blood boil. After all, the music has been about everything but the isolation and bitterness that may just be around the corner.

I've followed Springsteen since I was 11 years old.

I have always understood the message.

It's exactly 180 degrees different than the message that President Golden Shower is suggesting.

So the lead singer of the tribute band has been getting his ass handed to him.

But here's the rub.

The B-Street Band also played for Obama twice.

They aren't rich people.

They had signed a contract back in 2013.

Long before the Russian spy ran for the highest office.

They understand that Bruce is most likely not enamored that his music will be front and center on that crazy day.

Ah well.

At least no one will be watching.
