Classic fiction

When Bruce Springsteen was a little boy, he learned the story of Brave Cowboy Bill, about a pure-hearted little cowboy. It was the first of Bruces western loves, which now range from John Ford movies to Mexican music to Native American art. Each of these inspirations, plus what hes learned as a man and a rock n roller about how to combine whimsy and wisdom, were stations on the way to outlaw Pete, a modern legend of a criminal who starts out in diapers and confronts the roughest edges of adulthood.
Its one of the most ambitious and original story songs Springsteen has written rhapsodic and harsh, a meditation on destiny, filled with absurdities but not for one second of its eight minutes exactly a joke. Its an elaborate musical drama, weaving into a single tap-estry several styles of rock and an orchestration reminiscent of a Morricone soundtrack.
