The glory days of Bruce Springsteen and me

Bruce Springsteen will be 74 years old on Saturday September 23. It’s a date that means something to me. In fact, I remember when I first became aware of it, that the boss had a birthday and that every year after that day he would be a little older. I was an early adopter of Springsteen. It came to me through my older brother’s record collection, which is why we have older brothers: to filter the trash and filter the gold.
