Drive-By Truckers
Photographer's notes: May 9, 1974, Harvard Square Theatre, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 10 pm show. I was sitting on a drum case on the side of the stage. As the E Street band stood in unison by my side, Springsteen took a seat at the piano, about four feet in front of me. His fingers stretched out, beginning a haunting melody. At first I didn't recognize the song, or the gravity of the moment, or maybe it was both... but one impulse quickly took over me: reload the camera and shoot away. This shot was the result. It’s the image of the night, a young artist beginning his song and his future.
