Defending the Faith

I don't anticipate linking to The Sun very often, but this is a great story. I have never heard of James Bourne and "Busted" to me is a Johnny Cash song.

OF all the things to start a pub fight over, the merits of BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN is one of the weirdest.

But mentioning The Boss around BUSTED star JAMES BOURNE makes him see red.

The teen rocker lost the plot when he overheard some blokes in a pub talk admiringly about the rock legend.

He got so angry he slapped startled Springsteen fan Robert Cross's face.

Some great country covers of The Boss:
Highway Patrolman Johnny Cash
Johnny 99 Johnny Cash
State Trooper Steve Earle
Nebraska Steve Earle
Atlantic City The Band
Racing in the Streets Townes Van Zandt
My Father's House Darrel Scott
If I Should Fall Behind The Flying Mules
Born in the USA Mark Thornton
Mansion on the Hill Emmylou Harris and the Nash Ramblers
Across the Border Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt
All That Heaven Will Allow The Mavericks
Fire The Tom Russell Band
