Bruce Springsteen was inspired to write "Seaside Bar Song" immediately after seeing Bo Diddley play here. I heard this yesterday on E-Street Radio in a replay of the 10-23-12 John Paul Jones Arena show. I'm not sure whether I caught all of the onstage banter. This Web page says he also said he had his first drink here at the same time (early seventies?): http://www.nj.com/springsteen/index.ssf/2012/03/bruce_springsteen_rocks_a_pack.html.
