For Pete's sake

I've got a DVD of Springsteen's 1975 Hammersmith Odeon show courtesy of the 25th anniversary edition of "Born to Run " that my brother gifted me for my birthday.

Allow me to recommend this fine BBC Radio 2 documentary about that legendary occasion.

The most heartwarming section is the part about Pete - and here is the detail of genius, an HP sauce rep from Cardiff - who took the whole week off to attend the gig, sought Bruce out, got on well with him, hung out before and after the show, and even had a song dedicated to him from the stage.

History does not record if he gave the boss a Clark's pie.
