Garden State Parkway Revisited

Okay, I'm not going to get all sentimental on you, but I'd originally planned on posting The Hollies version of Bruce Springsteen's "Sandy (4th of July, Asbury Park)" today but thought better of it, for obvious reasons. Then I thought I should post the original (which I've done on previous holiday weekends) and thought better of it too.

So instead, enjoy this wonderful Jimmy Fallon story about Springsteen. If it doesn't bring a little tear to your eye, have it looked at. The embed code's been disabled, but just click...

...on this link to watch it.

And special thanks to our pal Sal Nunziato for posting this quite remarkable Springsteen eulogy for the late Clarence Clemons over at Burning Wood.

Like I said, I'm not gonna get all sentimental on you today.

Born to Run Tour = '75; Rolling Thunder Tour = '75. "I was a freshman in college then ... though you wouldn't hardly believe it to look at me now ..." Hey! i actually WAS in college then -- I could've seen both Bruce & Bob at their most epic-ness if i'd had even the slightest act together! but no! Dang. :-(

Did you see the video of the two of them going backstage together after the performance? It's interesting to see Bruce put those thirty-odd years back on in a couple of seconds.
