  • Springsteen, Bruce Willis & $6,000 Rock Photos

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    True story.

    A couple of years ago, my wife and I were in the Morrison Hotel Gallery on Prince Street in New York and this iconic Frank Stefanko photo of a young Bruce Springsteen was going for $1,500 or $2,000 a pop. I can’t remember which.

    Avid rock fans and supporters of the Morrison Gallery, we own several iconic photos of Neil Young, Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, Jerry Garcia and Bob Dylan and George Harrison.

    We thought long and hard but just couldn’t pull the trigger on the Springsteen photo at that amount.

    A couple of months later we were back in the gallery and the photo was now going for $6,000 a pop.

    “Who would pay that?” I asked.

    “Well, Bruce Willis was in here the other day and he bought two of them just like it was nothing,” I was told.

    Anyway, Springsteen, 61, will be the subject of the documentary, “The Promise: The Making of ‘Darkness on the Edge of Town’ tonight on HBO. Here’s a New York Times story about it.

    Also, the Morrison Hotel Gallery is featuring a special Springsteen exhibit Oct. 15 which you can read about here.

    If you’re a rock ‘n’ roll fan and have never been to this gallery, I can’t recommend it enough.

    Even if you don’t drop $2,000 per iconic photo.
