October 2, 1975.
Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band are scheduled for the Uptown Theatre in Milwaukee but a bomb scare delays the deed. The Boss retires to The Pfister bar to wait out the bomb sniffers. He settles in, performs a couple songs for the crowd and upon getting the “all clear” for the Uptown, proclaims “I’m a little loose” and catches a ride to the theatre atop a record promoter’s car. The set at the Uptown is epic. And, if you’ve caught Springsteen in Milwaukee since, you’ve probably heard him ask, “Are we loose?” … a hat-tip to that night when he was too loose to fake.
The Boss releases “Nebraska” on September 30, 1082. It’s #224 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Bruce Springsteen is not just rock ‘n’ rolling anymore.
Happy 70th …
