“I mean, if they’re doing a television show every night like Jon Stewart, or Ellen, or David Letterman, then they have their bunch of people who are sitting on a payroll someplace, who are coming up with material every day of the week. Those are the people who wind up doing the bulk of the work for them when they host the thing, because that’s their team.”

“I mean, people who watch Jon Stewart’s show every night don’t think he went far enough, because he couldn’t do what he does on his show every night, because it’s a different job. The same thing with Chris Rock. He can’t come out and do a tossed-salad routine, the way he does on his HBO shows, because this is the Academy Awards.”

“We’re shaking up a format, which I think is always a good thing. The thing about [2011 Oscar hosts] James [Franco] and Anne [Hathaway] is, they’ve both hosted Saturday Night Live, and they both did a good job at it. So they are accustomed to working with short rehearsal time, and live, lots of pressure, rewrites, things like that. They can make quick changes, which is very advantageous, and they’re skilled comedians.”

“On any given night, what allows me to get to that higher ground is the audience.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Sometimes, at night you could hear the whole damn city crying.”

“Physical pain is my friend. I pursue it every night for four hours.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“When you`re onstage you have a certain faith that somebody’s gonna yell somethin’ back. Some nights it’s louder than other nights and some nights they do, and on some songs they don’t. But that’s the idea. I think when you begin to expect a reaction from an audience, it’s a mistake.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Last night me and Kate we laid in bed talking about getting out, Packing up our bags, maybe heading south. I’m thirty-five, we got a boy of our own now. Last night I sat him up behind the wheel and said, “Son, take a good look around, This is your hometown.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“It doesn’t matter what happened last night or the night – or tomorrow night. It’s all about what you’re doing with this audience right now.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“At night I wake up with my sheets soaking wet and a freight train running through the middle of my head.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“”Born To Run,” that expands every time we go out. It just seems to you – more of your life fills it in, fills in the story. And when we hit it every night, it’s always a huge catharsis. It’s fascinating to see the audience singing it back to me. It’s quite wonderful, you know, to see people that intensely singing your song.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Don’t run back inside, darlin’, you know just what I’m here for. So you’re scared and you’re thinkin’ we ain’t that young any more…Show a little faith! There’s magic in the night. You ain’t a beauty, but hey, you’re all right.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair. The night’s busted open. These two lanes will take us anywhere.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Talk about a dream, try to make it real. You wake up in the night with a fear so real. Spend your life waiting for a moment that just don’t come. Well don’t waste your time waiting.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Show a little faith there is magic in the night. You ain’t a beauty, but hey you’re alright, and that’s alright with me.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“The first thing that I do when I come out every night is to look at the faces in front of me, very individually.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Show a little faith, there’s magic in the night.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“In Minnesota it’s so cold some nights you have to wear two condoms.”

 

Bruce Lansky

“We still play three or four hits every night. Now, we don’t play them like the record. We try to find new ways to do it.”

 

Bruce Hornsby

“If I go out one night, I must stay in the next. It’s the same with my golf. If I play one day, I don’t play the next. I try to pace myself.”
