    Saw him for the first time in 1977 on the 'Born

    to Run' tour in the tiny Paramount Theatre in Portland. Thrilling. When I saw him on 'The River' tour in 1980, I sat in the 10th row on the main floor at the old Memorial Coliseum. You all remember how he used to dive into the audience? Well, I swear this is true, I shall...

    What Can I Say, I'm a Groopie!

    This has been "an affair" for decades...It started before he was famous and before he was even cute back in 76. I've had the great opportunity to see him live about 8 times and hopefully someday I'll be able to meet him face to face!  I love him because of his...

    First Time I Really "Heard" the Lyrics

    The first time I heard Bruce was probably when Born To Run became popular, and was played on “Top 40” radio. I liked the song, and thought it was kinda cool. But the first time I really HEARD Bruce was years later, one night in 1977. I was driving home in my...

    Tougher Than the Rest

    Just love this song, it embodied all I wanted to say to my girlfriend, when I proposed to her. Sadly I was widowed in 1993 and yet  still play it, whenever I want to be reminded of her.

    Danced Onstage With Bruce

    Hi--In 1981 in Meadowlands arena concert I got pulled up to the stage to dance with Springsteen.  I know it's a fat chance, but I was wondering if there is anyway to find photos from that show.  I had some that were lost in a move and am extremely bummed. Any ideas?  Thanks.
