Bruce Springsteen: Banker Man Grows Fat, Working Man Grows Thin


Bruce Springsteen


The Boss voices his support for those who lost their jobs and calls out the bankers for being 'greedy thieves' and 'robber barons.'

Bruce Springsteen slammed the bankers during a recent concert in Berlin on Wednesday, May 30. The Boss sympathized with those who were struggling to cope with the crises and dissed the rich who got much richer during such tough economic times.

"In America, a lot of people have lost their jobs," the singer told the sold-out crowd at Olympic Stadium. "But also in Europe and in Berlin, times are tough," he added, speaking in fluent German. "This song is for all those who are struggling."

He called the bankers "greedy thieves" and "robber barons." Backed up by The E Street Band, he additionally launched into "Jack of All Trades", one of his new songs from latest album "Wrecking Ball" which featured lyrics, "The banker man grows fat, working man grows thin."

The Boss will continue traveling across Europe to promote his album until July. He will next perform in Spain, Portugal, France and Italy among other countries. After completing the European roadshow, he will return Stateside for an extended North American leg.
