Bruce Springsteen – The Rising feat. Tom McRae

#51. Joined by English singer songwriter Tom McRae, he selects Bruce Springsteen’s 12th studio album ‘The Rising.

Tom regales us with stories about being nominated for the Mercury Music Award in 2001, touring with Paul Weller, being invited to play Meltdown Festival by Scott Walker, and sharing the stage with Elliot Smith.

Of course we discuss Tom’s career highlight of having his music featured on Buffy The Vampire Slayer, while also dissecting the return of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street band, the impact of 9/11, and the heartbreaking, and stoic songs that Bruce created out of tragedy.
