Bruce Springsteen Dedicates ‘I’ll See You In My Dreams’ to Michael Gudinski

Michael Gudinski is still on Bruce Springsteen’s mind.

After posting a thoughtful essay on the late, great Australian independent music trailblazer, Springsteen dedicated a song to his good friend.

“I’ll See You In My Dreams” opens with the graphic, “In Memory of Michael Gudinski,” its lyrics seemingly written for their friendship.

On it, Springsteen sings, “The road is long and seeming without end/ The days go on, I remember you my friend/ And though you’re gone And my heart’s been emptied it seems I’ll see you in my dream.”

Gudinski, chairman of the powerhouse Mushroom Group of Companies, died Monday (March 1) at his home in Melbourne, aged 68, sending shockwaves through the Australian music community and around the globe.

News of Gudinski’s passing prompted an outpouring of grief on social media and was reported in newspapers stretching the world, including Ireland’s top-selling daily, The Independent.

Springsteen led tributes to Gudinski, who he described as “first, last, and always a music man.”

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee continued, “I’ve toured the world for the last fifty years and never met a better promoter. Michael always spoke with a deep rumbling voice, and the words would spill out so fast that half the time I needed an interpreter. But I could hear him clear as a bell when he would say, “Bruce, I’ve got you covered.” And he always did. He was loud, always in motion, intentionally (and unintentionally) hilarious, and deeply soulful. He will be remembered by artists, including this one, from all over the world every time they set foot on Australian soil.”

“I’ll See You In My Dreams” appears on Springsteen’s 2020 album release, Letter To You, which debuted at No. 1 in the U.K. and Australia, and No. 2 in the U.S.
