this guy used to be called a Springsteen clone, but you can't ignore him anymore. his music is just too good. and he's really cool. how many great songs has he done? if i had enough room i list them. sit still listening to his music if you can. ii saw him on Charley rose (you know charly rose? look him up) and he was really cool. and you don't get on rose's show if you haven't something to add to the conversation . his wife was eillein atkins, 80's supermodel.

Awesome song - I remember that the video flipped a lot of people out because there was a bi-racial couple dancing together and making out. Sheesh. So easy to piss people off, I guess! Love JCM!
