Countdown to Bruce Springsteen at the KFC Yum! Center: 'The Promised Land' [Musi

Yo-yo'ing up and down the East Coast to see Bruce Springsteen in concert was how I spent my 20s (along with working in unfulfilling jobs and drinking). So I'd planned on previewing his concert Saturday night with the E Street Band at the KFC Yum! Center with a long-winded self-indulgent preview, trying to explain what about Springsteen live has compelled me to see him more than 50 times.

But in the middle of "Growin' Up," Springsteen used to tell a story of Clarence Clemons taking him on a car ride to see God (supposedly Clemons knew everybody). Once found, God confides in Springsteen, there was an 11th Commandment:

Let it rock.  

So I'm going with God and shutting up. Instead of the article, I'm counting down to Springsteen Nov. 3 show by posting one of my favorite videos each day.

"The Promised Land," Capital Center, Landover, Md., Aug. 15, 1978

The dogs on Main Street howl 'cause they understand

If I could take one moment into my hands

Mister I ain't a boy, no I'm a man / And I believe in a promised land
