What happens when you get compared to a music legend every day, for years?
Brian Fallon's New Jersey rock four-piece, the Gaslight Anthem, has long been compared to Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band - despite having a heavier sound, quicker tempo and roots in the local punk scene.
What started off as a blessing became a drain for Fallon, puttting him off doing any press interviews for a year.
But speaking soon after the release of the band's fifth album, Get Hurt, he is at peace with with the comparison.
"It was awesome at first, then it really bothered me: I thought we've got to get our own thing, it really stressed me out. Then I got cool with it again," Fallon says, admitting "time and maturity" made the difference.http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/music/the-gaslight-anthem-are-happy-at-last-to-follow-springsteen-20150127-12yh8x.html
