::sigh::  ok..

1. rock n' roll isn't supposed to be about growing up. never was. it was 
started by kids for kids (actually started by 20-somethings who were after the 
teenage market, but it wasn't started by people in their 50's or 60's). 
"grown ups" were listening to classical and are supposed to hate rock n' roll 
and all that (nowadays) mediocre cliche. times have changed of course. the 
closest we've come these days to having a "generation gap" in rock music is 
marilyn manson, and he's been around since the mid to late 1990's. it's been 
too long. 

2. if "endless wire" is an indication on pete's "growing up", he's sure has 
become an old fart.  springsteen is better at it.  of course, this is just 
my opinion. 

but you know me, I can't complain.. ; )
