Hated hated hated Stern back in the day. Couldn't help but notice that over the past however many years, he's changed considerably. Just read his Rolling Stone interview from 2019 to learn just how much he'd changed.
Today he finally landed what he always considered his white whale, as Bruce Springsteen was on for, I guess, several hours, and people are saying it's one of the best interviews either man has ever done. I've only seen a few clips, so can't say for sure, but they're purty durn good.
