    (Thank God it's Bruce Springsteen's birthday.)

    Happy 72nd, Bruce!

    OK, ok. I like this one. Maybe because it’s pure pop. And has Courtney Cox in it.

      Now I feel real old. I was in high school when Born to Run hit like a bomb and Springsteen was the biggest thing to happen to R&R since the Beatles.

        Ugh. Not many long-time fans like the pure pop, but hey, it was the 80s. It's definitely a fun song at concerts. He still hauls someone up from the crowd to dance -- not always the young ladies. One time there was this old dude down in front, tall and skinny and dressed to the nines, and all night long he'd been totally cutting a rug down there. Bruce got him up on stage and the guy just went ballistic dancing -- seriously the best dancing I've ever seen, and the guy was probably in his 60s.

          No need to feel old, Franchi. He's still rockin'; so can you.

            How many shows have you taken in?

            I've seen Billy twice, ‘83 & ‘05.

              Sixteen. They were on tour pretty steadily from '03 right up to 2015, and always had at least a couple New York state venues on each tour. We also went down to Jersey three times, two shows at Giants Stadium, and my first ever was a benefit Christmas show at the little Asbury Park Convention Hall. Met his mom! Without knowing it was her at the time. We were talking to this nice older lady before the show as we took our seats. Later on, when the onstage dancing began, Bruce called out, "Hey, I think my mom's here tonight -- where is she?" And that same lady stood up, went up the aisle, and a minute later was going out onstage to dance. (I thought that was cool, that she apparently just had a ticket to the show like everyone else.)

              Where were the Billy Idol concerts?

                Both in Binghamton. The first at the Veteran’s Arena and the second at the Magic City Music Hall, the old converted Chuck E Cheese building.

                The second show we were about 5’ from the stage. It was awesome.

                    That is awesome when you're up close like that. The best upstate venue for us has been the Rochester hockey arena -- it's quite a bit smaller than the Albany and Buffalo arenas. On the converse, I'll never go to another stadium show again. It's still great to be there and hear the music (and feel the concrete shaking under your feet), but the distance when you're in the upper seats is just ridiculous.

                    I thought maybe you were going to say you saw him at the State Fair; I feel like he's played there a couple of times, could be wrong.

                      I’m not sure about the fairgrounds but he was at a downtown venue a couple years ago. I only found out about two days before and didn’t want to go alone. Once was enough for my wife, lol!

                        You should give Thunder Road a try. Seems like more of a bar crowd pleaser. Plus you could sing it to Pighuntress:
