For example, “The wedge mixes for Nils Lofgren and Soozie have a lot of drums for time, but also a large amount of Bruce and his guitar, so they can follow him,” Milner explains. “You never know what he will do next.”

At the San Jose show, Springsteen not only walked the catwalk and the floor to get closer to fans, and brought a couple of kids onstage to sing or dance with him, but he also played that “trust me” game, falling backward into the crowd and back-surfing from the middle of the floor to the thrust. Plus he takes requests when it seems right.

“In Newark, somebody was holding up a sign all through the show,” Cooper says, “and Bruce said, ‘Man, I’ve got to play this song. This guy’s arm’s gonna fall off.’ So they played ‘The Weight,’ as one of their encore songs and dedicated it to Levon Helm. There wasn’t a dry eye in the building. He’s remarkable. All music matters, of course, but I feel very fortunate to be mixing music that resonates with me, too, and with so many people.”
