How My Life Has Been Impacted By A Rock-And-Roll Shaman
On his 2014 High Hopes tour, I saw eight Bruce Springsteen concerts in the southeastern United States. On the road, I made some very dear new friends, had endless adventures, and most of all, discovered and fell in love with a whole new level of Bruce.
Starting with Pittsburgh on January 16, 2015, I was off and running again on The River Tour.
After my father, more than any other single artist or musician or teacher or anything, Bruce Springsteen has had the greatest influence of my life. It’s hard to explain why. Herein you can find random ramblings about Bruce, about my feelings about him, about my experiences on tours.
I just wrote a post about Bruce's show last night and then...oh, it's too hard to explain, but basically I accidentally deleted it. So. Let me try again. I'm simultaneously jealous as hell and super happy about the show in Jersey last night. The man (and his band) is...read more
The impossible happened. I met Bruce. The entire circumstance of how it happened seems incredibly random and completely perfect. Here's the story. I live in Asheville, NC, which is about 9 hours from St. Louis. I had been thinking about adding the Sunday, March 6 show...read more
Little Steven, Miami Steve, guitar player in the E Street Band, star of Lillehammer and The Sopranos, incredible musician, and founder of the Rock and Roll Forever Foundation. Steven Van Zandt is the man. And I MET HIM at Louisville. It wasn't any big amazing...read more
I lost the pit lottery at both shows. Dammit. At least at Sunrise I was on the front of the GA rail, and we missed by less than 50. But at Atlanta we were practically dead last. I have to admit that I take it personally. Is it really random, chance, luck? When I keep...read more
Show #1 of The River Tour. The pics aren't so great because I was kinda far back. But I needed to illustrate the post with SOMETHING! Hope these at least give a bit of the energy of the night. [gallery ids="730,726,724,719,725,722,721,720,723,729,728,727"...read more
Hello everyone! Long time, no write. But Bruce is back now and it's time to pick up the pen. Or the keyboard, as it were. (BTW, try clicking the photo above to see all of Bruce.) I sit at this very moment in The Coffee Tree Roasters coffee shop in the Squirrel...read more
I have a confession to make. This is especially being posted for any of my friends of all ages who are still struggling with addiction and alcoholism. When I was 17 years old, my boyfriend bought us tickets to see my idol, Bruce Springsteen. It was amazing. I couldn't...read more
It is hard to believe it's been so long since the shows. I miss the touring life. Much is changing, much too fast. More on that soon. I finally made my way through the Houston pics and selected some to edit. This is a few of the first I've played around with. I shot...read more
From Austin, TX, through Arkansas, Tennesee, North Carolina, Florida and beyond, here's just a small selection of some of my favorite iPhone photos from the road trip. I often passed great photos by, but just as often, I pulled off if possible and jumped out to snap...read more
