Lori and Bruce: Circa 1982: Stone Pony, Asbury Park, NJ with Lenny B and other friends (can't remember who!)
Bruce showed up at the Pony one night, and rocked the place, as usual. Before he quit playing, Lenny and I walked outside and waited for him to come out. i had my camera...so when he came outside, i asked if I could get a picture with him, he said "Sure, just make it quick" so we walked around to the back of the bar, I gave my camera to Lenny, and when I walked next to Bruce for the picture, he wrapped his arms around me and wow that was so incredible! Lenny took a great shot! in focus and everything. The next day, i went to the One Hour photo place at the mall (remember those?) and got it developed. The following weekend, back at the Pony, I brought a copy with me and Bruce was there AGAIN and I asked him to sign it, and he did! Thanks for taking this awesome photo, Lenny, and for sharing some amazing Springsteen moments with me!
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.
