“I saw the future of rock ‘n roll … “

May 9, 1974 ~

Springsteen opens for Bonnie Raitt at the Boston Arena. At her insistence, he plays his full two-hour set — unheard of from an opening act. Rolling Stone‘s Jon Landau writes in Boston’s The Real Paper, “I saw rock and roll’s future, and its name is Bruce Springsteen. And on a night when I needed to feel young, he made me feel like I was hearing music for the very first time.”

Landau goes on to become The Boss’ long-time manager and producer.
