Totally Boss

When I was a copy editor at a rock & roll magazine called Rolling Stone, way back in the early Nineties, my favorite line in our style guide read thusly:

Boss, the (Bruce Springsteen): avoid, per his request

How cool is it that Bruce Springsteen was weighing in on matters grammatical? Hey, Bruce, how do you think we should hyphenate "Beatlesque"?

More Springsteeniana to come on this, his 58th birthday.
