  1. Well in keeping with the "33 years ago today" aspect - 33 years ago I was in New York (for first time) celebrating my 30th b'day (was 63 yesterday) and attending my first Bruce show in the States - doing both the shows at Nassau Colisseum April 1st & 2nd - my only "indoor" TOL shows (where that show belonged!). I would that summer attend Wembley, both Birmingham, Dublin and both Sheffield (my then girlfriend danced on satge final show UK show in Sheffield) - then in early Sept there was the Amnesty gig at Wembley. The show morphed for me in Europe from the TOL gig witnessed on Long Is
  2. This was an unpleasant and sad shock today. I didn't know or communicate with Marsha, I only knew her here on the lake by her board name but felt that she was a like minded, kindred spirit (of similar age and Bruce journey length) whom I either enjoyed many of her posts or she very often would "like" or respond to some of mine - and to that end (as many of us do on here) you felt like you "did" know her..........just so sad as it evidently seems her illness was not a long one (which can be looked upon as a blessing I guess, but is harder / more shocking for the loved ones left behind). My
  3. Agree! That video did a great job of capturing and conveying what that tour had been like and it's still a buzz whenever you catch it now!
  4. Ha! yeah - AND he's found the bloody bottle of hair dye at the back of the cupboard and gone overboard! - looks ridiculous - the way he had it of late (and in the documentary) with grey coming thru was FAR better!
  5. That should read GANG not gand! I'm thinking Daisy hasn't been on here in the past 20 hours! ha!
  6. By the way - the same Atlantic surf that washes up at Asbury Park and all along the Jersey Shore!
  7. Well if this is what we're doing here's one of mine from my homeland / childhood - Portrush Co.Antrim N. Ireland
  8. Although you "might" get the second song!!? 18 years ago today!!!!! Jeez! - the whole gand there fit and well :
  9. DOH! I jumped on here with this and hadn't read those last couple of posts (ref his real name being Nelson) - SO - are we now full circle and this WAS a typo after all? ha!
  10. I watched the official video on youtube but through the TV last w/end - primarily to show the video to my wife - and when we got to that line the lyrics on screen now read Ben E King!!! I don't know if there is more than one version of the video out there or if they have amended it, but I was surprised to see it "whatever" as I felt I had been taught a lesson / learned something over the whole Benny King thing!!?
  11. Oh that is such a pet hate of mine! When I went to the 2 nights at Crystal Palace night 1 we were down on the floor in the crowd but on night 2 we had someone with us who just couldn't stand for that period of time (and is also short) so we were up in the seats. There were 2 guys behind us who had been chatting non stop - about bloody work (in the City I think!) - but A) for the most part the music drowned them out and B) I didn't want to start any bother (obviously) - BUT - when Bruce went in to Racing (always a gift) that was it - I turned to these two and said (with meaning and intent) "why
  12. I think I'm in the NO THANKS camp - especially if we are talking about these sort of albums that have been rife in recent years of taking an artist (usually a dead artist although not all) and basically just adding some strings to the original recordings!? Nah! A live concert with orchestral backing (maybe some years from now when E Street is no more) perhaps - that would be different I guess, that could be terrific in fact - but not just rehashing songs with strings on an album! There have been some interesting orchestra works (hell there's a couple of good WHO ones in Tommy back i
  13. Ha! - yeah we ALL bombed out.........where's my slice of that humble pie!
