A new film is being made -- by fans -- about Bruce Springsteen, called Springsteen and I. The film producer is Ridley Scott and the director is Baillie Walsh. Fans all over the world can submit a video clip. The result will be a music documentary released in cinemas across the world in 2013.
I had to participate, of course, so this morning as soon as the sun came over the horizon I walked to the barn and shot 5 minutes of video with my Flip. The sheep stood silently in front of me as I told the story of kissing Bruce onstage in 1992. I set the Flip on a fence post and jumped around like I was in the pit at a concert.
It will be a miracle if any of the footage makes it in the film, but I gave it a shot.
Speaking of the pit, I was there last month when Springsteen played in Omaha, NE. Bob's sister Mary went along on my crazy adventure and shot this photo. When Bruce circled around to the back of the stage I slapped his sweaty hands and grabbed his leg. Whew. I could go on, but I will stop there.
