Bruce Springsteen Personal Guitar: $140,000 at Live Auction
But mostly Bruce rocked the Beacon Theater last night, with the Max Weinberg Big Band behind him. They did three songs — “Open All Night,” a duet with Mrs. S–Patti Scialfa, and a major, rocking, spectacular “Kitty’s Back” with something like eight horn players and just sheer wildness.

But nothing was wilder than Cristina Carlino, the woman who started Philosophy (soaps, fragrances) bidding a winning $140,000 for the guitar Springsteen used during the show. – Quelle

Bruce Springsteen vor Gericht belastet

Bruce Springsteen soll seit geraumer Zeit eine heimliche Affäre mit einer 44jährigen Hausfrau haben. Dieses Gerücht geht aus den Scheidungspapieren hervor, die der „betrogene“ Ehemann Arthur Kelly beim Scheidungsrichter in New Jersey eingereicht hat. In den veröffentlichten Papieren heisst es, dass seine Ehefrau Ann ein sexuelles Verhältnis mit „einem Bruce Springsteen pflege, der in Rumson, NJ und Colts Neck, NJ wohnhaft sei“.

In his divorce complaint, Arthur Kelly said his wife „has committed adultery with one Bruce Springsteen, who resides in Rumson, N.J., and Colts Neck, N.J., at various times and places too numerous to mention.“

Das Bruce Springsteen Management hat diese Vorwürfe zurückgewiesen:

Springsteen’s media representative said the Jersey native stands by a statement he issued on his website in 2006 expressing his commitment to his wife and E- Street Band member Patti Scialfa, with whom he has three children.
The statement read in part, „However, due to the unfounded and ugly rumors that have ap peared in the papers over the last few days, I felt they shouldn’t pass without comment. Patti and I have been together for 18 years — the best 18 years of my life. We have built a beautiful family we love and want to protect and our commit ment to one another remains as strong as the day we were married.“

Columbia Records Announces the Release of New Patti Scialfa Album, ‚Play It As It Lays‘

NEW YORK, July 2 /PRNewswire/ — Columbia Records is set to release „Play It As It Lays,“ the eagerly-anticipated new album from American singer-songwriter-musician Patti Scialfa, on Tuesday, September 4.

Patti Scialfa will make a series of rare live TV appearances the week of her album launch including both NBC-TV’s „Today“ and CBS-TV’s „Late Show with David Letterman“ on Tuesday, September 4 as well as ABC-TV’s „The View“ on Thursday, September 6. (Please check your local listings).

„Play It As It Lays“ is the first album of new music from Patti Scialfa since the release of her critically acclaimed „23rd Street Lullaby“ in 2004 and is the artist’s third solo album since the release of her debut, „Rumble Doll,“ in 1993.

„Play It As It Lays“ premieres 10 new songs, written and performed by Patti Scialfa, showcasing the artist’s soulful command of melody and language in a series of expressive and intimate musical narratives incorporating elements of roots rock, folk, country, street corner doo-wop, girl groups and more into a sound and sensibility uniquely her own.

Tracks on „Play It As It Lays“ include: „Looking For Elvis,“ „Like Any Woman Would,“ „Town Called Heartbreak,“ Play Around,“ „Rainy Day Man,“ „The Word,“ „Bad For You,“ „Run, Run, Run,“ „Play It As It Lays,“ and „Black Ladder.“

The album is produced by Patti Scialfa, Ron Aniello (Lifehouse, Guster, Barenaked Ladies), and Steve Jordan (Patti’s co-producer on „23rd Street Lullaby,“ Jordan served as musical director for the PBS series „Martin Scorsese Presents the Blues“ and has produced albums by Keith Richards, John Mayer, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and others).

„Play It As It Lays“ features Patti (vocals, acoustic guitar, banjo, Wurlitzer organ) backed by the ‚Whack Brothers‘ Rhythm Section: Cliff Carter (keyboards), Steve Jordon (drums and percussion, acoustic guitar), Nils Lofgren (guitars, pedal steel guitar, dobro), Bruce Springsteen (Hammond B3 organ, acoustic guitars, electric guitar, harmonica) and Willie Weeks (bass). Additional players on the album include co-producer Ron Aniello (guitar, keyboards), Crusher Bennet (percussion), Jeremy Chatzky (bass), Mark Stewart (cello, guitar, banjo), Scott Tibbs (synthesized strings), and Soozie Tyrell (violin, background vocals), with whom Patti gigged back in her early musical busking days. Other background vocals are provided by Lisa Lowell, Michelle Moore, Cindy Mizelle and Curtis King.

Each of Patti Scialfa’s previous solo albums — „Rumble Doll“ (1993) and „23rd Street Lullaby“ (2004) — received four-star reviews in Rolling Stone magazine who praised her “ … clear-eyed joyfulness and unpretentious appeal … (evoking) … a woman not haunted by her past but enriched by it.“ Columbia Records
