    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.

    I love Bruce Springsteen's "Secret Garden" song.

    Maybe this is my number one love song. There was a time i was listening to it every day many times. When i was in love. Even now when i listen to sont, it still effects me. Does this make me a romantic? :-) You also listen and enjoy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtMhtMc1GW8

    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.

    Saw him for the first time in the summer live

    in front of 90000 at wembley. My dad brought me and my brothers up on the boss from since I can remember. We treated our old man to see the boss for the first time in 11 years. We all loved it he simply is the greatest!. Born to Run always gives me goosebumps :)

    He's Still Got It

    His voice sucks and his music is so so, but oh man, he has magnetism and soul and authenticity. I just watched him in the Rock 'n Roll Hall of fame concert. Bruce is 60 and he made everyone else there look old.. that's because he believes. He writes the most beautiful...

    We made a fanvid about a tough situation for miners in California: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IaAuBV_2GR8 The song is This Hard Land, by Springsteen.  Check it out.  You can also search for the words "Rio Tinto" and "Springsteen" and it'll come up.
