It's Bruce vs Bon Jovi for Top Touring Award

by Mark Cartwright

We might be older, but all the cool bands still come from our generation:  The nominees for the 10th Annual Billboard Touring Awards were announced yesterday.  NO Britney, NO Bieber, NO Boy Band....  Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band and Bon Jovi are up for the top two categories, Top Tour, and Top Draw. The trophy ceremony is November 14 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City.  Let's be honest:  You know, and I know, neither act cares about winning this award.  They could care less about the trophy, but it goes to show how the state of music has gone downhill over the last 20 years or more.  Plus it's proof that people want to see people physically play guitars, not lip sync to a choreographed performance.
