The first song I remember hearing on the radio was "The River". But since I was only twelve years old I lost track. Four years later "Born In The U.S.A." came out and from that moment I started buying and collecting everything that came out.
But the real passion came in when I saw him the first time live. It was on a hot summer night during the "Tunnel Of Love Express Tour". I will never forget the date, 28th june 1988 in Rotterdam. Before I went on the bus that took us to "De Kuip" stadium my mother told me: 'Have a really good time and enjoy yourself.' I had been looking forward to this moment for a long time. So when the band came on stage during the intro of "Tunnel Of Love" and finally Bruce with his Takamine in hand I couldn't catch my breath. When they launched into "Tunnel" I wanted to sing along but I was overwhelmed with emotions. I kept thinking about what my mother said in the morning. This must have been the definition of having a good time.
Meanwhile I have seen Springsteen in concert about 30 times and I always have that same feeling. It's the combination of the music with the lyrics and only one musician has that effect on me, so that's why I wanted a Bruce section on my page. Enjoy!
