I remember lying on the living room floor listening to my parents Bruce vinyls… I should tell my two part story at some point probably. And you’re totally a part of part two.
…. I AM? Now I’m curious, lol. What did I do? XDDDD but aaaaah vinyls. sigh I wish my parents had vinyls and that I didn’t have to buy the few I own, but eh XD
Aw well I rarely mention it because it happened ages ago so it never comes up but sure thing, LET’S TALK ABOUT BRUCE :D
Soooo, premise: I got into Bon Jovi when I was.. eleven going on twelve. And I’m really glad I did because they were my gateway into rock music but nevermind this is not about my BJ situation XD premise the second: my parents mostly like either classical or italian or french songwriters and I think that until I got into rock music the only English records in the house were two Beatles greatest hits and a Stones one, so basically I didn’t know anything other than that and I had no clue of who Springsteen was except for the guy who wrote that Born in the USA song, lol.
Soo, given the premises: since I was this much into Bon Jovi I figured the people they liked were worth checking out. And since Bruce was Jon’s favorite singer.. XD actually at the beginning it didn’t go that swimmingly because the first record of his I bought was Darkness on the Edge of Town (and because they sold it with a newspaper I bought and they said it was ‘his fundamental record’ so I had assumed it was actually Born to Run rotfl I was a sweet summer child) and I only liked Badlands, but as said I was young and stupid. Then I saw that my aunt had the live in NYC record and I asked her if I could borrow it figuring I’d give the guy another chance, AAAAND I heard that one and went like ‘holy shit WHAT WAS I MISSING OMG GIMME’ (also, tmi: when I heard American Skin for the first time I thiiink I cried, then I went and translated it myself because I used to translate songs to try and learn some English so it was exercise, and then I hung it on my bedroom door and it’s still there. /end TMI) and uhm then I just went and tried to get my hands on all the official records I could get my hands on (also: it was when in order to download records you used WINMIX. FUCKING WINMIX. I’M OLD) and between saving money, a friend of my uncle’s who was.. the kind of obsessed fan who went to see him in Milan in 1985 when he first came to Italy who burned some others for me and using Winmix (lol) I managed to get everything and the more I went on the more I went like HOLY SHIT THIS GUY HIS MUSIC *THIS FUCKING GUY*. (I probably listened to my aunt’s vinyl copy of Tunnel of Love than she ever did when she bought it probably. Too bad she had left it at the grandparents’ when she moved out lol.) Aaand then I basically spent what was left of middle school and half of HS suffering because my parents went like ‘lol absolutely not’ whenever I asked if they’d bring me to see him live (since after I got into his music he only played in northern cities and never in Rome) and then he did a solo show for.. it was the Devils & Dust tour here and like I think I cried when I got tickets and I cried when I attended and by then I was already sold (I mean, I had upgraded from ‘look for regular records’ to ‘LOOK FOR THE DEMOS THAT HAVE NEVER BEEN RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC’ on Winmix XDDD) but ugh that concert it was amazing. And thankfully after then he always came with the E-Street and I was eighteen by that point so I was going to see him wherever I liked if I could. Aaaand that was how I got into Springsteen in a not very concise post XDDD so yeah I mean I’ve been a fan for… errrrr fourteen years now oh dear.
also the first new record I bought after getting into his stuff was The Rising and whenever I listen to it I get all the nostalgic feels but they’re good nostalgic feels.
I’ll be very disappointed in all of fandomdom if no one makes a fanvid out of that movie to guns n’roses’ civil war
Because that was written for that movie damn it

The Ullevi stadium in Gothenburg, Sweden was built in the 1950’s for sporting events. It hosted matches in the 1958 World Cup and stood proudly until June 1985 when the Born in the USA tour arrived in town. The enthusiasm of the bouncing crowd literally rocked the stadium structure causing so much damage that it cost millions to repair the structural collapse.
I can add that to this day, Bruce still begins the song Twist and Shout, which was what he was playing when the stadium broke, with yelling: “Here we go! THE STADIUM BREAKER!”

No worries, I understand perfectly. Actually I don’t even remember that it was 1rst person/present tense. I think the issue come from that it’s Japanese and I feel like they prefer present tense. (although the translator could have changed it to past
