  1. It breaks my heart to have to let you all know, that my best friend, my American Mom and dare I say it, Bruce’s number 1 fan, @rosiejaneymary sadly passed away peacefully yesterday. Marsha was the sweetest, kindest, purest hearted person I’ve ever met. She was my best friend. I was a stranger to her and through the Lake, she became my mom. She supported me, was there for me constantly and even let me into her home. She introduced me to all of her friends who also looked after me, and she made me feel so loved and cared about. She looked after me and gave me some of the best memories

  2. It would be wrong of me to stop by this place and not acknowledge this thread. Here's something I wrote elsewhere. I had no idea RJM was unwell and I can only hope she's at peace now. For her family and friends, it's going to be tough, but hopefully they can find some peace in the memories of her and in the knowledge she's having a helluva time in the Giants Stadium up in the sky, being treated to the most damn fine Big Man solo that paradise has ever heard. One thing that always stood out to me about RJM was her unparalleled positivity and refusal to criticise a Springsteen so

When I click on it to "open in a new tab" (or window) it saves it to my download folder - may have to do that and then play it from there. 2021-03-24 E St. Radio dedication.m4a

  4. Hi friends I went back to work today so I haven’t been on my phone to update but here I am! So I’m sure you have been able to see that we’ve exceeded the amount needed to get the memorial bench for Marsha: https://paypal.me/pools/c/8yg4bbvGF7 (thank you so much again) I emailed Ray to let him know, so I’m just giving him some time to decide what he would like written on the plaque and also which charity he would like the excess money to be donated to/what he would like to do with the excess Once I know what is to be written on the plaque, I can send the check and the

  5. I am saddened and shocked and still don't know what to say. I just emailed with Marsha a few days ago and I find this shocking even though I knew what she had been dealing with. She was such a good friend to me and I will never forget her. Rachel I know how close you were to her. I am sorry that you lost such an important person in your life. I feel so bad for Ray. They had a wonderful marriage. Marsha, my fellow Jersey girl on the board, I will miss you so much. We had so many wonderful conversations and there were many times I was able to lean on you. Thank you for bei

  6. Rachel, thank you for sharing with us such beautiful memories of Marsha. (I remember her sharing with me your experiences and ventures in New Jersey together.) Ray texted me on Sunday with the heartbreaking news and I was, and still am, in shock. I knew of her most recent diagnosis, but I did not realize how badly she was inflicted with the ALS.) This is just horrible. I only had the pleasure to meet Marsha once, when she offered me a ticket to the January 31, 2016 show at The Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. (We "met" originally of course here in the Lake, which I have been a stranger o

  7. I am beyond sad. She was maybe the single most positive person i had the pleasure of running into on this board in my 13 1/2 years. And based on Rachel's stories that was not a put on. That was her. And that was the woman i had the pleasure of spending way too little time with after the 1-27-2016 River show that we both attended. I had always hoped we would meet again. There was a discussion going on last week about the possibility of recordings of the River tour from Northern New England in 1980, but since the furthest north it went was Boston there was speculation that maybe they mean

  9. Those were the best days of my life. All my best days were spent with her and I owe a lot of it to her. How special of a person she was. She invited all of her friends to her house for my birthday brunch and cake and everything. We all sat around together telling Bruce stories and laughing and being so grateful for the memories we shared. Now I realise that the memory of that time is one of the greatest of all. She would always quote Born To Run to me, whenever we would talk about getting to see each other again and doing all of the things we had planned. ‘Someday girl, I d

  10. Good morning! Here's a "Sunday surprise" for your enjoyment. Hrubesh used the wav files from my 1985-09-01 release and applied his skills to improve the sound. When I listened to his finished product I was really pleased with how good an audience recording of an outdoor stadium show (80,000 seats, plus the floor but minus the seats not sold behind the stage, so ~66k ticketed per wiki) could sound. This show was on Sunday, delayed from Friday because of a severe storm. So it ended up being the last of the six stadium shows, and my last of 24 shows that tour. I had a lot of fun, and so

  12. I'm devastated, shocked and very upset to hear that Marsha has passed away. My inbox is full of warm, kind and compassionate messages I received from Marsha that i will treasure, although I never met her I always considered her a dear friend of mine and always will. She had a heart of gold, a remarkably caring person who I will miss so very much. Dear Rachel, I know your heart is broken please accept my deepest condolences and could you please pass my condolences on to Marsha's husband and family and give them all my love. Rest in peace my friend XOXO

  14. Losing RJM/Marsha is so sad and painful. She was important in my day-to-day life because we so often chatted online about the things that mattered to us so much. We saw the world in much the same way. To paraphrase Bruce (as is only right): When they built her, brother (or sister in this case), they turned dust into gold When they built her, brother, they broke the mold Marsha was kind, compassionate, smart, and wise. It is hard for me to really believe she is gone.

  15. All involved and interested. Currently it's NOT possible to generate a Soundboard-recording list automatically. As you may know, even the IEM/ALD listing is far from complete. Brucebase' statistics is tag-based. So once I am able to add tags like iem, ald and sbd to a show-page, I can automatically generate the list you all are looking for. However, we need to find out first which of the dates have a soundboard-sourced bootleg that is in circulation. I precompiled a new list at, but note that this contains all shows with a bootleg in circulation. http://brucebase.wikidot.com/sta

I knew how much Marsha cared about so many of you, a lot of you would be mentioned in our late night talks til 3am and she would often mention stories about meeting (or almost meeting) so many of you too. As hard as it is, and as heartbroken as I am, I’m so thankful to have you all to share your memories and love for Marsha because she truly deserves it.

  21. Rachel and others here have said it all. Marsha was the most giving person I ever met in my life and she will be so missed by many. I'll never forget walking to the record store in Asbury with her and Rachel and pointing out Bond Street, brunch at Marsha's after Rachel's 21st Birthday and "the" guitar pick, and the joyful look Marsha had having all the Bruce love in her house with her old and new friends. Why, why, is good question. She had a deep faith in God. She had. So very sad for all and hugs to you Rachel.

She flew over the ocean as a birthday gift a long time ago, and she just took on a new meaning. But I still can’t believe that Marsha is not with us anymore. Thank you @Daisey Jeep for the idea of lighting a candle.

It was the day a team of researchers found the Titanic on the ocean floor. At that time I was living in East Germany and my first Bruce concert didn't take place until 3 years later. I had just finished the first year of my professional training with honors and had to work the next day (Monday). I had absolutely no idea at the time that Bruce would be performing 4,000 miles away from home on this beautiful Sunday. I was definitely in

So I emailed and asked if I could send it another way and they’ve given me their PayPal address. They also said that you can choose where on the boardwalk you would like it to be placed, so I have just emailed Ray to let him know.

Hope she is happy wherever she is and her family and all those who knew her find strength. Crazy world. So much of negativity on one side and on the other hand, people living in different parts of the world, never having met with just one shared passion having genuine love and care for others and always watching your back.

  32. Seeing the apparent success of the vaccine rollout is bittersweet. Like most people, I pray it signals a road out of the darkness we’ve all felt over the last year or so. I lost my mum to COVID about 6 weeks ago. Would that have been the case if the vaccine had been about 6 months earlier? I’ll never know. Nor should I really expect it to have been. The speed it’s become available is both incredible and maybe also a bit open to question. Here’s hoping it’s the both the route out and the saving grace that’s so desperately needed.

Newbies should feel perfectly free to ask for bootlegs. There are many generous people here who will gladly share with people while expecting nothing in return. That is the spirit of this community, at least I hope it is. If you feel that someone who has asked for a show has not contributed enough for your liking, then feel free not to share your collection with them. But do not scold or

  43. I genuinely don't get the complaints about repetition in the Archives. Even when the sets varied 'wildly' say 2013, they always drew from a bank of songs. Springsteen has never been an artist noted for setlist unpredictability and that's definitely true of any tours before the Reunion. If fans want the Archive series to continue, they are going to have to accept that repetition will be integral to continuity. For me, it's all about the small details. For example you could say well MSG'88 isn' t different on paper to Detroit '88 but if you don't pick up MSG '88 you aren't going to get the
