Popping Back : Fans Fume, Others Cheer Bruce Blast

March 22, 1987

In the Popping Off column in the March 15 Calendar, Kristine McKenna aired her negative views on the Bruce Springsteen phenomenon. Here's a sample of the heavy reader response, which ran roughly 60% to 40% against McKenna's opinion.

What makes this country great is that everyone is entitled to an opinion and, therefore, I am not upset about what McKenna has to say about Bruce Springsteen. I can only pity her.

What he has done through his records and concerts cannot be tarnished by any one writer or critic . . . even in a publication with the prestige of the Los Angeles Times.

He's given thousands the gift of hope, personal freedom and, most important, a reason to believe. And I'll tell you, Kristine, I had a hell of a lot of fun along the way.
