+1
When the change was made uptown
And the Big Man joined the band
From the coastline to the city
All the little pretties raise their hands
I'm gonna sit back right easy and laugh
When Scooter and the Big Man bust this city in half
With a Tenth Avenue freeze-out, Tenth Avenue freeze-out
Tenth Avenue freeze-out...

Bummer. Seeing Springsteen and the E Street Band in the 70's and 80's were some of the best concerts I've ever seen.

I saw him in '84 on the "Born in the USA" tour. One of my all-time favorite concerts.

Bruce's music has been a part of my entire adult life.

71 concerts later, they can still give me goosebumps.

"You wish you could be like him...but you can't"

RIP Big Man

Thank you for the memories.

I saw him in 1981 as well at the Cap Center - had (i thought) crappy seats behind the stage - turns out the stage was open and he played a good part to those of us back there. Awesome concert.

I had seats like that the first time I saw him, and he did the same thing. We had much better seats than some sitting in front of the stage.

What? How did i miss this?

Ug, never made it to see the E Street Band. Going to a concert now will be like going to see Zappa plays Zappa, pretty close and still awesome, but not the same thing.

I'll never forget the first time I heard a Springsteen song. It was c. 1973. I was 15 years old doing yard work for some guy (I was always working as a teenager). The song 'Rosalita' comes on the radio. I thought it was about the coolest song I head ever heard. I was a Jersey boy, hell I grew up in Weehawken, hard by the Lincoln Tunnel, that's almost in the swamps of Jersey. I hooked into the lyrics instantly. I was an immediate huge fan. That was 38 years ago, and that has never changed. Bruce is God's friggin gift to NJ and to the whole USA, no question about it, and Clarence was part of that. Bruce is still writing and performing great, fresh material, his latest album was outstanding.
