  1. Back in 2000, I watched Bruce, Steve, and Southside sing this in Asbury Park. It’s still one of my fondest Bruce memories. It was poignant then, when they were “only” in their 50s. I’d love to hear them sing it together again.
  2. Oh I’ve heard of the show…it’s impossible to be on this board and not know about the show. But I don’t get Sirius so I’ve never listened to it. My car had a 90 day free trial of Sirius but I never renewed it when it expired and that was in 2015.
  3. Yes it was the film by the 2 French filmmakers. Miami MArk died of cancer in 2015.
  4. Lol. Did he actually have a ticket and go in on time? One of my favorite memories of Rich is that he went to a lot of shows without a ticket. Then he’d play a game with the scalpers. He’d find a couple of scalpers with good tickets but he wouldn’t pay them what they wanted. Instead, he would wait until the show started, and one or 2 songs in, he’d get a great ticket from a scalper for next to nothing. Every time, it made me feel bad to leave him in the parking lot when the rest of us would go into the show. And every single time, I’d get a text from him just a couple of songs into the show, letting me know he found a great seat for under face value.
  5. Cell phone photo of my TV. Rich teasing another firefighter.
  6. It sure was. And I miss him too. And that beginning shot with Rich was before anything happened, and it was Rich teasing the other firefighter and laughing. So cool to see it. Cell phone shot of my TV
  7. The thread title is a little exaggerated, FYI. He’s only in a few scenes but it’s still awesome to see film of him, alive and doing his job.
  8. CNN is playing the documentary called 9/11. Turn it on right now! There were 2 filmmakers following along with Rich’s firehouse in September 2001. The story was supposed to be about a probationary firefighter, but they happened to be with the firefighters and on the scene on 9/11, so it turned into a documentary about the day and the firefighters. If you get CNN, turn it on. Rich is in one of the very first scenes. I’ve seen the documentary before, and he’s in it in several places. Even if you don’t know Rich, this is a great film about 9/11. I just saw Rich on TV a moment ago.

  10. I was part of GL then and I remember very vividly that we were following and checking in with each other on the thread called "Unfuckingbelievable." I'm sorry that thread can't be revived. I remember worrying about Rich, and I remember hearing that he was OK. I remember him popping into the chat room that night. This community was much smaller then and very tight knit. @PattyC, I grew up in NYC, but I was living on Long Island on 9/11/01. 99 days out of 100 I would have been in court in downtown NYC, but for some reason I did not have to be in NYC on that day.
  11. Rich survived 9/11. He spent the entire next year going to funerals of other firefighters who died on 9/11/01. He died over 10 years later, fighting a fire in Brooklyn on 4/16/12. RIP Rich.
