working on a dream
Just dug out the ticket stub and some pics from what was probably the best gig [though how can you measure] I've ever been to. Bruce Springsteen & the East Street Band. Wembley Arena Thursday 2 April 1981. It was all a Springsteen gig was fabled to be. And more. 3 and 3/4 magnificent hours of searing music, stories told, dreams made and possibilities born. In the pic: in the cakky coloured car long-time best buddies Dave from Leicester and Mike from Bradford. The other guy is a friend of Mike's from Ireland, can't remember his name. And in the back of the car Gail from Clevedon and me imagining we are in a Springsteen song. Reason for this: I'm really enjoying the new Springsteen album 'working on a dream'.
