Because he uses saxophones...
Courtney Love has said in her latest "Love on Love" YouTube series that she doesn't like Bruce Springsteen as a musician. In the video, which you can see below, she offers her thoughts on the New Jersey-born rocker by saying with a shrug, "I like [his 1983 album] Nebraska...And whenever I say that to a Springsteen person, they look at me funny."
She goes on to say that, "I really like him. He's a nice guy. Cameron Crowe, an old, very dear friend of mine, took me to the Staples Center for a three-night gig, and I could only last an hour and a half in a three-and-a-half hour show with the Boss."
When she gets around to why she doesn't like him, she says, "My Springsteen problem is just that saxophones don't belong in rock & roll," referring to the E Street Band's wide use of instrumentation. "They just don't belong."
She finished off by noting, "I don't think he sits around listening to Hole records, do you?" She's probably right.
