Bruce was so pumped, and the local papers gave him Front Page reviews - Star Ledger, Bergen Record, the New York Times, The Daily News....guests included Gary US Bonds and Southside Johnny. We all had gone to the East Rutherford Post Office at Midnight a few weeks earlier to get our ticket lottery envelopes postmarked on a certain date, and it was a party in and of itself. When the show started on 7/2, the first song, was Born To Run. The whole place was shaking and we thought that we were going to join Jimmy Hoffa buried under the meadows - but, the place held true, and Bruce was awesome. Look at the setlist - Jungleland and Jersey Girl back to back - amazing!
We went to four of the six shows, and there was the usual roller coaster of emotions. All I can say is that it was the week of a lifetime, and times like that just need to come around more often - forever friends!! - rap
