SPRINGSTEEN TRUE TO HIS ROOTS

Bruce Springsteen's blue-collar persona isn't wearing off, even though he now lives in a 4 1/2-acre Beverly Hills estate, says longtime friend and fellow musician "Southside" Johnny Lyons.

"I don't think he's gone Hollywood," Lyons said in this week's People magazine. "He's got to protect himself from the sharks and nuts. But he also knows that the reclusive life isn't any good either."Springsteen, who is releasing a pair of albums this week, made a guest appearance on Lyons' latest album and the two returned to Asbury Park, N.J., where they both made their names in the 1970s, for a video shoot in September.
