Music review: The Saints, The Borderline, London

The Saints have big-name fans. Bruce Springsteen covered their “Just Like Fire Would” every night of a recent tour, and Bob Geldof said only three bands changed rock in the Seventies – the Pistols, the Ramones and The Saints. Like the Pistols, the Saints were spat out by an uncomprehending EMI, but they kept going, and here they were promoting an excellent 14th album, King of the Sun.

You're the boss: Bruce Springsteen parking fine withdrawn by Leeds City Council

A parking ticket stuck on one of rock star Bruce Springsteen's tour trucks as he prepared to play the first gig at the UK's newest music venue will not have to be paid, a council has confirmed.

We go way back, Bruce Springsteen and me ... or it feels like it

Bruce Springsteen and I don't know each other. We've never met. There are no Rolling Stone or NME-style backstage stories for me to recount about chats over beers after a gig — let alone memories of dancing onstage amid the E Street Band. And as a middle-class Brit who can't drive, I'm hardly the natural audience for an American singing about underemployed labourers driving '69 Chevies out west in search of work. Yet had I been one of the lucky fans asked about their relationship with The Boss for a new documentary released on Monday, that wouldn't have been a problem.
