Read Bruce Springsteen’s Incredible Tribute To His Friend, Michael Gudinski

Tributes have been pouring in from all corners of the music world for legendary Aussie music promoter and champion Michael Gudinski, following his death at the age of 68.

But if you only have time to read one of them, then we highly recommend checking out what rock icon Bruce Springsteen had to say about the late Mushroom founder.

To many, Gudinski was a business mogul, a champion of Aussie music and one of the industry’s biggest power players. But to The Boss, he was a friend.

Here’s what he had to say:

My friend Michael Gudinski was first, last, and always a music man. I’ve toured the world for the last fifty years and never met a better promoter. Michael always spoke with a deep rumbling voice, and the words would spill out so fast that half the time I needed an interpreter. But I could hear him clear as a bell when he would say, “Bruce, I’ve got you covered.” And he always did. He was loud, always in motion, intentionally (and unintentionally) hilarious, and deeply soulful. He will be remembered by artists, including this one, from all over the world every time they step foot on Australian soil. My deepest condolences to his wife and partner Sue and to the whole Gudinski family, of which he was so proud.
