Looking forward to getting the book, it sounds like it was really a labour of love. I found it on Google, I was doing some searches on the Winterland shows & it popped up.
My brother & I saw Springsteen twice on the Darkness tour, at Berkeley Community Theater & Dec. 16th at Winterland.
Those two shows were the apex, and also the end, of the wonderful run I had seeing live music in the bay area as a teenager in the 70s.
I was 19 in ’78, and the realities of life after high school were putting me though a great deal of discomfort. Darkness was the right album for me at the right time.
The music was never quite as good after that, and the good times never as carefree.
I only saw Springsteen live one more time, at the Oakland Area on the River tour. In spite of excellent seats, seeing him in an arena was just not the same,
& I decided to stick with the memories of the 70s shows, which also include The Paramount in Oakland in ’76. I listen to Bruce infrequently now,
and he has made a lot of records that I have never heard. That being said, I cherish the white hot memory of those shows, and having been a Springsteen fan in the pre-superstar days,
when it was like belonging to some fantastic secret society that had discovered the source of rock & roll in it’s purest, best form.
