We could be heroes… RIP Starman #DavidBowie


David Bowie wrote songs, above all, about being an outsider: an alien, a misfit, a sexual adventurer, a faraway astronaut. RIP to a great artist, whose capacity to delight, challenge and shock stayed with him until the end. I like that his message was that there has to be always empathy beyond difference.
In his last email to Brian Eno, he wrote: Thank you for our good times, Brian. They will never rot’. Indeed, good times with friends in rock’n’roll will never rot. Amen to that.

Turn and face the strange / Ch-ch-changes / Oh look out now you rock and rollers / Pretty soon now you’re gonna get older.”


How cool? So very cool #BruceSpringsteen #TheRiverTour2016



Here’s Albany 2012, my nephew and I were in the pit and all night Bruce was smiling at us, he gave Jordana a pick and pointed to her several times. At the end when the band was saying goodbye his security man came out on stage and made a gesture to us and said Bruce wants to meet you. I don’t know who was more excited, her or me. Anyway he brought us backstage and Bruce was just standing there sweating and waiting for us. They talked about her favorite songs and concerts and he could not have been nicer. When we were saying goodbye I thanked him for being so nice to her and I said he made her life complete. He said to me: “No thank you. I watched you and your daughter enjoying the show so much and I wanted to share the moment with you”. Now how cool is that?




A Bruce Springsteen Christmas giveaway #BruceSpringsteen #TheRiverTour2016 @MVZaGoGo @nilslofgren @azsweetheart013

Hi! As I think you remember, a fine fellow fan offered for Christmas two free tickets for the upcoming Bruce’s concert in Washington DC. They were intended to be for someone who might be in need to see him but did not succeeded in having the tickets. We asked the people in Washington DC area to tell us who they’d like to nominate to have a ticket, and why do they thought they deserved a chance to see Bruce.


We are happy to announce that we have a winner in the name of Greggory Hammond, founder and president of Guitars Not Guns Children’s Music charity in Washington DC, providing guitars and free instruction to foster kids and youth who does not live in a healthy social environment. In his program he teaches guitar to young people that are at risk of going down the wrong path and any other kids that want guitar lessons. It is a great and successful program that helps get guns off the streets and help share music instead of violence. Please check his page if you want to help, for example by donating a guitar lesson or two to an at risk youth, who has practiced the basics, and wants to go further but can’t afford it:  https://www.facebook.com/greggory.hammond.7

and his web site: http://www.dcguitarlessons.com/

So, Mr. Hammond is going to see Bruce for the first time, and I’m really happy for him. Still, he has to promise to learn VERY WELL the The river record! each side! no cheating! 🙂
