Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams closed out the third Invictus Games, a Paralympics-style event for wounded veterans, in Toronto on Saturday.

Springsteen performed an acoustic set himself before returning to the stage to join Adams on the 1983 hit “Cuts Like a Knife” and Springsteen’s own “Badlands”.

    Wonder what Diana would have to say about all this militaria? I went there & it was a total cop conference & the Air Canada Center had concentric rings all manner of police vehicles from horses to tactical vehicles. They still have the front facia of the old abandoned deco Post Office that reminded me of having the whole place to myself when I first moved to Toronto in 93. Years ago I went back to TO to pickup two 1970 CCM Marauders at the same time as the G7 Summit & they had surrounded the Greyhound terminal Questioning, arresting & shouting at everybody to get out of town. I got enough stories to be a writer for the Rolling Stone but my latest personal reminiscence may very well redefine the art of image & music. Long story short, I’ve been able to positively identify a ten or eleven year old Bryan Adams as the kid that swiped my 1969 Raleigh Chopper prototype directly in front of the now defunct Queensway Drive-In Theater! Not only that, I spotted him after as kids, standing on a darkened recessed neighbor’s porch before Bryan got away yet again. From Bryans first album “If Wishes Were Horses” to his latest work where he describes a “69 Buick” the inference is clear to me. Prince Andrew’ Royal mental health awareness campaign seems wholly misdirected coming from a long line of military men including myself (P.P.C.L.I. 2nd Batt)would see the imperial elite as the direct cause of much of this PTSD & their myriad of unforeseen consequences.
