Talked to Jonathan Daen today, our longtime friend and advisor, and found out that the 1975 Bruce Springsteen photos on the Grinnell College website came from a box in his attic. My son Tom just finished his first semester at Grinnell, and we’d read about this early Springsteen concert in the college magazine, but we had no idea that buttoned-down Jonathan, now a financial guy in Springfield, MA, was an avid concert goer, and ace photographer, in those days! Bruce Springsteen, performing at Darby Gym, Grinnell College, 1975. The photos are quite stunning and I told Jonathan how impressed I was. “It wasn’t hard, there were only 500 people there. I was in the front row.”
