What can we say about The Boss? He was “Born in the USA,” and “Born to Run,” he took up guitar playing and started writing songs in the 60s, he loves “Nebraska,” he’s been on “Fire,” he likes “Dancing in the Dark,” he sees “The Ghost of Tom Joad,” he likes “Girls in Their Summer Clothes” (who doesn’t?), and he’s turning 65 in September!
The Boss also recorded an unforgettable album, “The Seeger Sessions: We Shall Overcome,” and Buddy Halker is one of the foremost interpreters of the great legends Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie. “He lucidly makes the switch from should-be honky tonk classics, to rockers, to bluegrass, to juicy folk blues.” The Daily Herald.
