The Boss!!!

Today I did a layout from an old Big Picture Scrapbooking class run by the lovely Gretchen (I’m re-doing all the lessons). The prompt today led me to create a layout about my favourite musican EVER – The Boss – Bruce Springsteen.


I’m so happy with how it turned out and that I now have documented my love for The Boss. I first heard Dancing in the Dark back in 1984 and became an immediate fan. I quickly purchased the Born in the USA album plus his entire back list – on cassette tape :-). I love loads of his songs but my favourite would be Born to Run. I had posters up all over my teenage bedroom and had a big crush on his guitarist Nils Lofgren :-).

I still buy every album that comes out and still love his sound. I’ve been lucky enough to see him in concert 3 times. The first back in 1985 at the height of his popularity. My Mum got us tickets and it was the very first concert I ever went to. We were way at the back but it was still fantastic. The next time was a  solo acoustic tour at the Capital Theatre and the last time in Brisbane (we were on holiday) – I went by myself and had the best night – dancing away in the 10th row (on the floor). Hope he tours here again one day. If you ever get the chance go see him – he’s a legend!

  1. I really like the way you give us a story around the page you are creating, makes it seem personal to us as well. Really nice.

  2. Libby, I’m loving that layout and didn’t we all wish we were Courtney Cox and got pulled up on stage to dance with the boss!!!

  3. Great LO! I love the Boss too and saw him in concert back in NY…I guess it was around 85 too but I can’t remember for sure. Are your pictures from a magazine or ones you took at the concert?

  4. Annie – the pics are from the internet. All 3 times I saw him cameras were forbidden. Oh, how times have changed :-).
