Now - not wanting to meet Bruce isn't an option for me. Beau makes him sound so lovely that I can't imagine saying I don't want to meet him.

Anyway it's not likely to happen. I don't live in New Jersey or even the USA for that matter. I can hardly nip down to Asbury Park at the weekend to stroll up and down the boardwalk on the off chance, or take a trip to Rumson pretending to check out the real estate.

He does come over to our little island from time to time when Jessica is jumping. I rode myself many years ago as I mention in this post so I would enjoy a day out at The Horse of the Year Show. It's not the place to meet Bruce though. Well I wouldn't approach him. He is there being Mr Springsteen - a dad supporting his daughter - and I wouldn't want to intrude. I couldn't guarentee that I wouldn't stand open mouthed and gawp though!

I'm not sure I could bring myself to hang around outside a hotel. Don't get me wrong I have no problem if it's your sort of thing but it seems a bit undignified to me.
Staying in the same hotel is a possible solution, if you know where Bruce is staying, and the price is within your reach. I'd even stretch the budget to get a room. My logic might be a bit woolly here but try to stay with me. If you have paid for a room, the hotel is as much yours as it is Bruce's so it can't be helped if you bump into him. An added bonus is you would be meeting him as an equal in a way - as a fellow resident. Sinead and Cein - I'm rooting for you.

Mick produced the Cream concert at The Royal Albert Hall in 2005. He invited my brother and sister in law to meet Eric at the gig. Their daughter and her husband who live in Vancouver were guests at Eric's concert last year and were intoduced to him.
Now whilst I am not suggesting that Bruce and Eric are bosom buddies they have played on the same stage together.
I'm wondering if I can persuade my brother, to persuade Mick, to persuade his producer, to persuade Eric's management team, to persuade Bruce's management team that Bruce and Eric could do some sort of show together ... AND give me and Mike a backstage pass.
Hmmmm - it's a bit of a long shot.
Perhaps I will just have to swallow my pride and stand outside that hotel after all.
Oh by the way Mike has just pointed out that I'm closer to Bruce than I thought - Six degrees of separation? pah! I'm the sister - of someone who's met Eric Clapton - who's played on the same stage as Bruce Springsteen.
