Home State Wins Again!

I just wrote a post about Bruce’s show last night and then…oh, it’s too hard to explain, but basically I accidentally deleted it. So. Let me try again. I’m simultaneously jealous as hell and super happy about the show in Jersey last night. The…

Meeting Bruce Springsteen

The impossible happened. I met Bruce. The entire circumstance of how it happened seems incredibly random and completely perfect. Here’s the story. I live in Asheville, NC, which is about 9 hours from St. Louis. I had been thinking about adding the Sunday, March…

Meeting Steven Van Zandt

Little Steven, Miami Steve, guitar player in the E Street Band, star of Lillehammer and The Sopranos, incredible musician, and founder of the Rock and Roll Forever Foundation. Steven Van Zandt is the man. And I MET HIM at Louisville. It wasn’t any big…

Following Bruce. Why?

In 1975, Born to Run came into my life. It rocked my world. This post is an attempt to explain what Bruce has meant to me—and why I’m following his tour and blogging about it. I was 12 years old. Just starting 7th grade….
