YOURE LEAVING!!!...IM NOT THROUGH YET...IM NOT THOUGH YET!!!...AND I VIVIDLY REMEBER THINKING TO MYSELF... NO WAY... im soaking wet in sweat... I'm exhausted, let alone the band!!!... i look up at the people in front of me who are turning around...and we all look at each other like... theres no way he's out there AGAIN!!!!... screaming at the few of us in the stadium... and i turn around...and theres bruce with that grin that you always hear about...ive only seen it that one time... him standing at the microphone... all alone on stage... we're all in shock...and he starts singin...IF THERES SOMETHING YOU NEED...and the band runs back onstage... and they blast us... about 20 of us... in madison square garden...it was without a doubt one of the greatest moments in the history of rock and roll...thats what that concert was, on december 19, 1980, in new york city
