I went to a Bruce concert at Veterans Stadium when I was 16.

I loved Bruce.

At the time.

The concert was more than disappointing.

Dude can't sing to save his life.

He and his band were truly fantastic. That venue, however, was drug-infested pit.
So was the inside and outside of Veterans Stadium circa 1986.

Bruce was a huge disappointment and I was a wide-eyed teen who thought he was the best...

Band was great.

Maybe Frank Sinatra. He had a better voice than Tom Waits.

I was never impressed with Old Blue Eyes at all.

I think of him when I remember the day of the big blackout when the grid went out (2003?) I was in a meeting in Manhattan when we lost power and had to walk down 11 flights. Most of us in the room were people who had gotten out of the WTC on 9/11, and the meeting had just been a presentation by a proposer for security at the NJ ports, so we were talking about potential ways to track terrorists and/or bombs in shipping containers, and then the lights went out. I remember feeling a little squitschy at first.

Anyway, made my way to the river AGAIN, and got a ferry that took me to the northern end of Hoboken. By then it was dark, and it was very hot, and I had to walk through the streets of Hoboken to go south to Hoboken Terminal, and I remember somebody playing VERY LOUD Sinatra tunes as I made my way through the streets.

Give me that other Jersey son, Count Basie.

Frank, among others, remind me of my parents. Dad and I used to watch old movies together. I heard a lot of old music there.

Take Me to the River? Hot, tired, and Sinatra isn't a good mix.

Ah, just like I remember "Sing along with Mitch (Miller)". My mother used to play that record.

Nice to have musical connections to good memories.
