15. Springteen said 'no' to many people using his songs
Edited on Mon Apr-25-11 08:12 AM by karynnj
until Kerry's campaign asked - and were told 'yes' for 'no surrender, no retreat'. Springsteen knew and liked Kerry from the 1980s when both were involved in helping vets. He was then very active in both the Kerry and Obama campaigns.

Chris Christie, a HUGE Springsteen fan, who went to hundreds of his shows, wrote an op-ed in our local nj paper complaining when Springsteen did concerts for Kerry. Knowing how committed Springsteen was to Kerry and Obama, he should have known that Springdteen would not play for his inauguration, but he asked anyway. When he refused, Christie hired a Springsteen cover band.
