When Daryl Hall and John Oates took the mike at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies Thursday night - in a gala at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. - Hall reflected on both the honor and the injustice of being the first "homegrown Philly act" inducted. He listed many deserving names, from Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes to Todd Rundgren. It was part of a big night for the Cleveland-based Hall of Fame, as the E Street Band, Nirvana, Cat Stevens, Linda Ronstadt, Peter Gabriel, and high-shoed rockers Kiss were inducted.

WE LIKE TO picture our rock stars spending their tour off-days engaging in various manifestations of debauchery. But if you're Max Weinberg, you're spending your Tuesday night in Philly in a most un-debauched manner. Tonight, Weinberg's boss, Bruce Springsteen, and his co-workers in the E Street Band are performing in Boston. Wednesday, they open their sold-out, two-night Wells Fargo Center engagement. In between, Weinberg has a date to speak at the National Museum of American Jewish History on Independence Mall.

A knowing grin crossed Bruce Springsteen's face as he sang the rueful "Thunder Road" line "So maybe we're not so young anymore" Thursday night at the Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford. But on such a musically satisfying, dramatically packaged night like this one was, did the aging issue really matter? No, the 49-year-old Springsteen doesn't slide across the stage on his knees, or leap blindly into the audience, as he used to do. Nor does he run himself ragged in vocals and interplay with the band, the sort of hijinks (and screwups)

Most tribute bands boast that they look and act like the bands they cover, and there are more than a few Bruce Springsteen tribute bands that do just that. But for Tramps Like Us, paying tribute to the Boss and the "E" Street Band has nothing to do with appearances - it's all about the music. "We don't do any of the banter or the stage antics or anything like that," said Mark Salore, Tramps guitarist and lead singer with Tramps, which will be playing Friday night at Phoenixville's Colonial Theatre.

Back in February, when Bruce Springsteen brought the River Tour to the Wells Fargo Center to perform that 1980 double LP from start to finish, it afforded the Jersey rocker the opportunity to reframe songs that were originally written about confronting the harsh realities of adulthood with the perspective and wisdom that comes with the passing of three and a half decades. The concert trek that brought Springsteen and his E Street Band back to Philadelphia for the first of two shows at Citizens Bank Park - a second show is scheduled for Friday - is still nominally known as the River Tour.

By Maria Archangelo I had my first glimmer of hope when I saw my sometimes self-conscious 14-year-old son play air drums with Max Weinberg to "Jackson Cage. " But it was when he sang "Thunder Road" with 20,000 of the faithful that I knew I had him. I had taken my son to the church of Bruce Springsteen, and he came out a believer. Amen. Going to see Springsteen with my son was a thrilling prospect, but I grew anxious as the day approached. My son is a musician, so I knew he would be impressed by the mighty talent of the E Street Band.

Garry Tallent figured it was finally time to step out of his comfort zone. For most of the last 45 years, that zone, professionally speaking, has been on stage off to the side of Bruce Springsteen, where the bass player unobtrusively helps lay down the rhythm as the last remaining charter member of the E Street Band. That's where he'll be Wednesday and Friday, when the Boss plays shows at Citizens Bank Park. Even when the group was disbanded for most of the '90s, Tallent still stayed behind the scenes, working as a record producer and writing songs in Nashville, where he lives.

The arrival of The River in October 1980 came at a momentous time in Bruce Springsteen's career. It was his fifth album and first double LP, and also the first music he released after turning 30 the previous year. With Born to Run in 1975, he had built a Wall of Sound monument to rock-and-roll escape - and survived the hype of being on the cover of Time and Newsweek. The world closed in on 1978's brooding Darkness on the Edge of Town , which fought back with a raised-fist declaration on "Badlands": "It ain't no sin to be glad you're alive!"
