A Shout-Out From Bruce

A friend tells me he was listening to Springsteen on Sirius and he quotes Bruce saying:   "I was in the Village one day and I picked up this paper. It was called Crawdaddy.  These guys were writing about music the way I was thinking about it."   Of course, some may know that, later, in early 1973, we wrote the first major story on Bruce to appear anywhere--8000 words, at that.  And became friends for many years.  But in that quote he is referring to before all that, when he was running up to New York for gigs before signing first record contract in 1972.  Full story coming in my forthcoming memoir but here's a little video I made a couple years back...
