I was living on the east coast, Patty on the west coast, so we met in the middle! We scored tickets, booked a hotel room and proceeded to play scrabble in the lobby, to kill time until the show.
At around 4pm, there was some commotion in the lobby...and there was Bruce, walking into the hotel, carrying his guitar, with just one other "handler"...and a crowd of others who somehow found out he was there...and US! We of course jumped up and followed him to the elevator, took a few pics and then tried to figure out how to run into him again! I'm looking for these pics...
I have three life-long passions, and Bruce Springsteen is at the top of that list. I grew up in Freehold too, and I felt a connection as soon as I heard Born to Run at my friend Carol's house, when I was around 14. His music touched me. I've been to over 50 live shows, and have seen him play in bars, at the Jersey Shore.
