It was a sultry summer day at the Jesey shore — like so many others. People flocked to Asbury Park to help escape the heat and humidity of their homes.  The beaches and boardwalk were packed — like way back in the days of old! There were those who had also come to see Joe Grushecky And The Houserockers with special guest Eddie Manion on saxophone at the Wonder Bar. Though Grushecky and crew hail from Pittsburgh, PA, they have become sanctified by Asbury Park fans and…Continue Reading “Joe Grushecky & Bruce Springsteen @ Wonder Bar – Asbury Park NJ – 7.18.2015”

Update: I added a link at the bottom of the page to download the entire show as mp3 audio. And the faithful gathered that night, on the mount of the about to be christened mega-church—The Prudential Center. This was a night of firsts. Bruce Springsteen never played the Prudential Center before. But it was a mighty arena. And christened it was. It was my first time in the city of Newark, and I lived my first thirty-eight years in the New Jersey/New York metropolitan area.

I’ve been a busy man these past few days. I’ve been scanning a lot of slides. As you can see in my previous few posts. It’s funny, I almost forgot I had these photos. When I dug out my slide pages from my closet, there they were. It seems there’s been a lot going on in my head since I saw Springsteen at Key Arena last week.

Ghosts In The Eyes …

I remember being there. I was high up almost touching the sky. Nothing could bring me down short of a bullet to the brain or some other grand misstep. I’d never been this high. Not to see a show at least. Not to see HIM. It was like an out of body experience. I’m here and I’m somewhere else …     It was a beautiful sunny post-summer Sunday. September 22, 1974 to be exact. Having just finished my senior year at Linden High School,…Continue Reading “Ghosts In The Eyes …”
