      1. Read the article, paraphrased it as “He’s a pretty decent human being.”
        That’s a pretty low bar to clear, even for pop musicians. I’d be surprised if an outright majority of them couldn’t meet that standard.
        My brief against him is simple: he can’t sing all that well, and his songs aren’t very interesting.
        (Obviously, that’s a statement of subjective taste.)
        Some people love him. But for all the praise of him I’ve heard over the years, I’ve rarely heard much about the musician’s actual music. [shrug] AFAICT, publicly liking Springstein is more a tribal shibboleth than anything else.
