Keep calm and Glory Days in Rimini!


From the 23rd of September to the 28th you’ll find me at the Glory Days in Rimini, Italy, one of the biggest gathering of Bruce fans in Europe, a rock’n’roll event that reunites Bruce buds, friends and rock’n’roll aficionados, and many many musicians, going on each year since 1998. 17 years and counting, people, this year celebrating the 35th anniversary of the The river release. It will be 6 days of old and new friends, all kind of rock’n’roll artists for an incredible amount of different sets every night, laughters, beer, friendship, burgers, pizzas, vodka lemon, piadinas!, soccer on the beach, sun, sea, lemonade and Bruce fans. Since it’s been a while from the last time we saw each other in front of a “certain” stage, it will be wonderful to be together again for a while with all the friends and family who travel alongside us in this wonderful journey of Bruce togetherness.

I’ll be there also to take pictures and collect fan stories to share with you on this page, so if you find me asking for a portrait please do not be offended, I’m not selling you a magazine subscription 😀 I don’t want your credit card details, I want your Bruce stories!

so, let’s pack our bags, guitars, Bruce shirts and smiles, and be ready to live the Bruce fan life for the last days of summer, singing his songs and those of many other rockers, eating and drinking and generally feeling faboulosly alive and kickin’.

Lupo Alberto – We are the world Bruce Springsteen

This is a “vintage” table (1985) from a comic series very popular in the Eighties and Nineties in my Country among teens and students. The author is Silver (Guido Silvestri) and the cartoon name is Lupo Alberto. The story line is about a wolf (Alberto) who is constantly trying to enter a henhouse because his girlfriend (a hot pullet 🙂 ) lives there. His archenemy is a big sheepdog, here pictured while listening to a particular song that entices a response from the blue wolf, who reveals himself to be a Springsteen fan by singing Bruce’s part in We are the world.
