The ages of the crowd ranged from those still in the single digits who went with their parents to people who looked to be in their 70's - the young straight through to the young at heart. In fact it came as a bit of a shock to see all those old people out there and realize they're all pretty much the same age as me, and also that of Springsteen and the band.
Always poignant lines from Thunder Road, they mean more as the years go by:
"So you're scared and you're thinkingPersonally, I find that a little bit depressing, no matter how truthful it is. Made a bit better by what follows:
That maybe we ain't that young anymore...
Show a little faith there's magic in the nightBruce is an inspiration to people everywhere, especially those further along the time line. Heck, he performed for almost 4 hours but yet I was wiped out after just bopping along. Much credit to all of them.
You ain't a beauty but hey you're alright
Oh and that's alright with me"
I'll definitely be at the concert the next time Springsteen comes to Buffalo, and I have faith that there will be a next time. After all, he needs the crowds as much as we need him.
