CLASSIC CONCERT: Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band @ Seton Hall University (Walsh Gym) / South Orange, NJ / December 11, 1975

Having grown up in Jersey, it pains me to think of all the times I could have seen Bruce Springsteen live before the September 1975 night when I was finally won over at The Bottom Line. However, none of my misses trouble me more than the one I made in 1974 when he played the […]

In the late 70’s, most of the Northeast schools presented shows throughout the school year. Mine was no exception. Paul Simon was one of the many great […]
