Maybe a full version of American Land featuring the E Street Orchestra and Rose Tattoo might have been more appropriate here… but then I am Welsh, so maybe not Celtic enough to get this one… I always wondered why it is called New Jersey, given the population profile (Essex), Bruce excepted of course… does anyone actually know? I mean why is South Central not called New Glasgow? Or Headbutt?
