I hail from the City of your choosing, Asbury Park New Jersey. A fan since you named your first album after our fair city; I’m one of your loyal “kids huddled on the beach in the mist.” We’ve met on those nights you thrill the locals with impromptu performances at the Stone Pony, which made that venue famous.
I’ve noticed your occasional forays into politics, including your concert cancellation in North Carolina to protest laws about who gets to use what bathroom, and who gets to sue for discrimination.admin | Filed under: Asbury Park, Monmouth County News, Opinion, Tommy DeSeno | Tags: Asbury Park, Bruce Springsteen, Capital Guidance, LGBT, Monmouth County News, Opinion, Sharia Advisory Board, Sharia Law, Sheik Muhammad Taqi Usmani, Stone Pony, Tom DeSeno, Tommy DeSeno | 6 Comments »
