 His transmutation of blues tropes was even more explicit in the opening of "Moonage Daydream", when he claims "I'm an alligator", then transcends gender by becoming "a mama-papa coming for you", until lift off is achieved and this world can no longer contain his imperial bluesness and he turns into a "space invader" and a "rock'n'roll bitch for you". Yep. He's Blind Laughing Gnome, Thames Delta Bluesman extraordinaire.

 Not sure the "Born to Run" analogy is too valid, but overall I enjoyed this article.
