Last night I was in Easton, PA presenting a slide show and discussion about my career and my new book, Bruce Springsteen In Focus 1980-2012 . The crowd was wonderful and there were so many great questions. There were some "old timers" in attendance and when I say that, I mean professional photographers who remember the old days of film. And darkroom work.
As I was standing up there glancing out at the crowd staring back at me, I had a thought...what if Bruce Springsteen never existed? Who would we all be following for decades, passing on his legacy to our children, which musician would we sing with, dance with, cry with, and grow up with? I can't think of any, for no other writer has moved me. Do you agree?
