Pizza Party

Henry is a great little chef. He made us this delicious pepperoni, mushroom and olive pizza before we heading off to see Bruce Springsteen. It was a fabulous evening. We were able to walk to the Rose Garden from our house. Our seats were FANTASTIC... First row of the 100 level... Bruce was probably 50 feet away with no obstructions! The show was really great. They had huge screens that displayed the detail and sincerity of his face. He was passionate, fun and energetic. Most of the music was from their new album MAGIC, so I wasn't as familiar with many of the songs. He certainly played a fair share of classics. Here is the set list:

Of all the great armies of rock fans, few can match the devotion of Bruce Springsteen's. For them it's not just catching just one show-it's about catching them all. Anyone who has experienced Springsteen in concert will testify that the bond between audience and artist transcends the usual adulation. Something magical, almost mystical happens. Some might describe it as spiritual-most definitely it is life affirming. It is in trying to nail this phenomenon that the beautiful hardbound For You has arrived.
Edited by Lawrence Kirsch and replete with an amazing welter of outstanding photographs, it's a mind-blowing collection of thoughts and stories from fans of every age and many nations, each explaining why Springsteen occupies such an important place in their hearts. Covering all four decades of Springsteen's career it is possibly the ultimate fanzine for it is the fans who have made the journey and whose words tell us as much about them as they do about Springsteen. The warmth and humanity that flows from every page is truly moving and provides a beacon of hope from which we can all draw strength in these hard times. Not a book to be read at one sitting but rather to revisit and enjoy over time.
