Kinda like Bruce's own stories about his own family struggles at home when he was Growin' Up. Better than me leaving was me picking up my good buddies John and Ro (of "Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes" fame). We left for the show at 5pm and raced into the city. Bruce opened with BTR and Ro was in the ladies room as John and I were screaming for her to come out. She did and we danced all night. It was a River tour show extraordinaire. Bruce was hot - Price You Pay, Ramrod, the hits just kept on coming. We made friends, we hugged, we cried. It was the typical four hour Bruce roller coaster of emotions that took us there and back. When the show ended, everyone in NY was outside the Garden and just kept singing all night long. It was a night to remember. Read the songlist. Close your eyes. You'll be there. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. Live at The Garden. How may things in your life are that good? Rock on, forever friends, rap
