The man Linda didn't fall in love with

So, yesterday’s post of a young, ‘scary’ moi produced a number of comments, here, and on Facebook et al. All I can say is, was I the only one among us who had a bad haircut 30 years ago?

I noted that the photo of me came from a box in the garage including some pix of a young Bruce Springsteen and the E Street band, playing the Whiskey A Go Go on LA’s Sunset Strip. As I recall, a CBS Records flack hired me to shoot the gig, probably because, about a year earlier, I’d photographed Bruce and the band at Berkeley High School (hey, even Bruce had to start humble), one of which photos wound up in Rolling Stone somehow.

Like a lot of startup bands, Bruce & Co. had signed contracts that obligated them to play a number of dates at venues that gave them an early break, so tickets for this then red-hot act at a tiny club like the Whiskey became a very big deal in rising-celeb-crazed LA. Bruce, as you can see, had a much better haircut… but Linda has confirmed that she never fell in love with him…
