Music awakens our higher insights. May we all use these moments accordingly: http://tinyurl.com/ark8wdf Turning Natural Storms into Biblical Floods Who is it that decides the people of this country and this planet don't have the right to know their weather is purposefully manipulated on a continental and global scale? Who decides this massive and continuous operation is legal yet must be kept secret from the public? Who is it that subjects all humanity to meteorologist after meteorologist proclaiming what a mystery this decade of manufactured weather has been, as community after community is intentionally drowned, blown, or washed away? The People need to stop accepting endless diversions and rhetoric, and start finding out who actually controls their reality.

Who is it that needs to start taking their meds again so the paranoia subsides? Could it be someone we know?

Leaving the sarcasm behind, it is great to see Bruce still so involved in helping the Jersey Shore. I was born and raised in Asbury Park, NJ. I remember Bruce when he was Dr Zoom and Sonic Boom and played in all the bars up and down the shore. I was in the same class all through high school with his wife, Patty. So that and $3.50 will get me a cup of joe at Starbucks. I remember Hurricaine Donna in 1964 that devestated the shore. This storm was much worse. Please donate what you can, and remember, when Bruce sings on "Born To Run" {Beyond the palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard, girls comb their hair in the rear view mirror and the boys try to look so hard} he's singing about me, a Castro Valley resident! I hope you enjoy the concert and if you want to see the Jersey Shore before the hurricaine you can go to jerseyshorescapes.com and see the beautiful pictures that Pat McCarthy took for his annual calendar.

Hi Rob, maybe my father was one of your teachers, he taught History at Asbury Park HS at that time. I grew up in Brick.

This guy(Bruce Springsteen) is awesome. I think I will put him on my profile as one of my heroes!!!!

I'm the opposite. Grew up in the East Bay and now live in Lacey. Born to Run has gotten me into a lot of trouble. Imagine my surprise when I found out that Highway 9 ran through town. Except no one in Jersey calls it "highway 9", it's Route 9. I still call it Hwy 9. I get looked at like I'm a Benny. LOL
