The other day I was watching Bruce Springsteen’s VH1 Storytellers episode on MHD. Usually, the “Storytellers” format is really uncomfortable and cheesy in my opinion, but the Boss was the exception. It was truly riviting to listen in to what Springsteen had to share about his songs and where they come from. In particular, his performance of his song from the “Devils and Dust” album titled “Jesus Was An Only Son” really moved me. It is an incredible narration of the death of Jesus and the relationship between Jesus, the son, and Mary, his mother. I highly recommend this episode and it is available on DVD.
