Bruce Springsteen Is In ‘Very Deep Shit’ After Excluding An E Street Band Member From The New Album Cover
Bruce Springsteen revealed the mistake they made on the upcoming album’s cover during a recent appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
The E Street Band and Bruce are preparing to release a live album, ‘The Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concerts,’ which will drop on November 19. Before its release, Bruce wanted to promote the record on The Late Show. While talking about the record, Bruce pointed out that there is only one problem with this album.
The rock icon revealed that every band member appears on the cover except their pianist, Roy Bittan. The musician joined the E Street Band in 1975 while they were recording on the third studio album, ‘Born To Run,’ and he has been playing with the band ever since, contributing to over fifteen studio albums.
During his conversation, Bruce mentioned that he is in very deep shit due to this mistake. Springsteen noted that he wanted to apologize to his long-time bandmate and friend in front of the audience and said that Roy is in his heart even though he is not on the cover.
Bruce Springsteen reflected on Roy’s absence from the cover:
“There’s one problem with this album cover. Every band member is on it except for Roy Bittan. Roy Bittan is not on this album cover by mistake. And I am in very deep shit about it, which is why I bring it up this evening. So, Roy, you are not here, but you are here in my heart.”
Later in the conversation, Bruce also talked about releasing a book with former President Barack Obama, ‘Renegades: Born in the U.S.A.,’ and he also performed ‘The River’ live during the show.
