  • He had one hit in the 80s just like Roy Orbison did..
  • ALL NEW!!! I can see why Bruce Springsteen and Steven Van Zandt keep coming back to Gary U.S. Bonds -- besides that great party sound, he's a delightful, charming guy! Terrific stories in this video interview about good times and bad, but no sex, no drugs! I think you'll enjoy this and hope you'll share it with friends! Thanks! http://www.mrmedia.com/2013/05/hey-bruuuuuuce-gary-u-s-bonds-is-back-with-a-rock-memoir-2013-video-interview/#.UaAdUeu_2pl

  • I think it's time for Gary to do another one with Bruce...this time to rejuvenate Bruce's career!
