MusiCares Person Of The Year...

Four weeks to the day until I fly from Perth to Brisbane for the first night of the Australian Wrecking Ball tour and I'm not really thinking of anything else.

This week Bruce Springsteen was named Person of the Year by MusiCares - an association that supports the music community in the US.

The accolade came with a night of tributes from stars performing some of his biggest hits, including Sting, Elton John, Patti Smith and Mumford & Sons.

It also saw this short tribute film shot by Thom Zimmy whose previous collaborations with Springsteen include the documentary on the making of the Born To Run album and the excellent The Promise: The Making of Darkness On The Edge Of Town.
