By malcolm Published: June 4, 2009

OK, Springsteen fans, here is a chance for you and your brethren to gather and rumple and fetish an array of artifacts related to BROOOSE!!
All you grown-ass men I've seen standing around after a Springsteen show like school girls waiting for one of the Jonas Brothers

As the hall is fond of reminding folks From Asbury Park to the Promised Land: The Life and Music of Bruce Springsteen is the first big Boss sanctioned exhibit of his stuff "in the world " and the rock hall will surely make use of their opportunity.

As should you, Big Boss Fan.

In case you haven't heard:

From Asbury Park to the Promised Land is a comprehensive look at Springsteen’s music, from such early bands as Child, the Castiles and Steel Mill through his work with the E Street Band and as a solo artist. The exhibit includes several of Springsteen’s guitars, including the Fender Esquire that is on the cover of Born to Run. It also includes the outfit he wore on the cover of Born in the U.S.A., as well as numerous handwritten lyric manuscripts, posters and handbills from all phases of his career, and various awards and honors. In addition, the exhibit includes Springsteen’s 1960 Chevrolet Corvette, which he purchased after the success of Born to Run. The exhibit will run until Spring 2010.
