James Schuster wrote: I had skipped seeing him at the Roxy, Los Angeles 10 days earlier (too much hype). I drove up to UCSB because a friend had given me a ticket. It was worth the 100 mile drive. I was won over by the first song - Thunder Road, piano backing only with one high stage light lighting Bruce from behind. Very dramatic - especially if you are 18 and trying to figure the great big world out.
