Everybody has a hungry heart…and a Bruce story. At times comical, informative, and opinionated, author Greg Miller embarks on a casual jaunt through the timeline of Springsteen’s early career. From the diverse perspectives of unusual encounters and interviews, the author observes the emerging career of rock n rolls premier entertainer and explains why he is The Boss. .Spanning a career of 47 years, Bruce has logged more than 1,750 concerts to date. There are fans and there are superfans. Springsteen A Notion Deep Inside interviews the superfans, one who attended 795 Bruce concerts (including all 113 on The Darkness tour), and explains why his fans know him as The Boss. Meet a fan with a 25-foot Bruce man cave mural and a fan who grew up with the family and reveals the location of Greasy Lake and an educated guess of where The River flows, and another fan who explains the science of getting those impossible-to-obtain Bruce tickets.While the author shares stories of fans he met in the Caribbean, Peru and Ireland, fans who wanted to share their Springsteen stories, as with nearly all things Bruce, the journey begins and ends in New Jersey.For the uninitiated, The Shore is explained, top to bottom, Keyport to Cape May, Shoobies and BENNYs, Mt. Mitchell, The Upstairs, The Student Price, and The Stony Pony, Jenks to Jimmy Byrne’s—they’re all in the book.As a final observation, the author locates Bruce in the all-time rock ’n roll pantheon, and chisels his place on Rock’s Mt. Rushmore.The companion website lists every Springsteen concert (and shows cancelled), unique memorabilia, rock lists, never-before-seen concert photos, and suggests road trips and further reading to explain the origin of the darkness that seeped into Bruce’s edge of town.Table of ContentsIntroductionAcknowledgementsSection 1— Hors doeuvre—How to use this bookSection 2?Everybody Has a Hungry HeartThe French West Indies—of all PlacesThe Boss Almost Played Loyola in 1972The Best Seats to See Bruce Were FreeMemorabilia- A Piece of the BossIntimacy–You Talking To Me?Section 3—The Performer—New Jersey Finds Its Pride in SpringsteenWhen The Boss Outranks the Chairman of the BoardThe Payoff—I’m On the Cover of Time and NewsweekGetting tickets – Shut Out of the Meadowlands in 1984A Hard Act to FollowGrowing Up—Variations on a ThemeThe Venues—The Bottom LineSection 4?His Music – More than Just an E Street ShuffleSparks Fly on E StreetRock ’n roll FusionWhat Rock ’n roll Isn’tAt Its Best Rock is InspirationalBruce’s Music—“Lapsed-Catholic” RockWhy are Bruce’s Songs So Dark—Connecting the ShadowsJersey Calling—9/11Section 5—The Fans and the Super Fans —Tramps Like UsPhilip “PJ” Petchers—A Bruce Concert VeteranThe Joe Lamm InterviewThe Man Cave of John NorjenJim Erdman?In a League of His OwnWill O’Connor—The Professional Fan—A Local HeroThe B Street Band—The ReplacementsHow Long Can Bruce and the E Street Band Continue?Section 6—BackstreetsBruce and his PoliticsMaking Rock ’n roll ListsWhat to Take to the Island—Rock ’n roll ListsBeing In the ConversationSection 7—Trying to write this bookReferences—Sources and Suggested Reading MaterialsAbout the AuthorAlso By The AuthorRoad Trips to ConsiderIf eBooks Had a Back Cover—This Would Be ItEndpiece
