About

Janis Joplin eyed 19-year-old Bruce Springsteen here and spoke to him briefly, as she found him sexy and desired a rendezvous with him, on 8/23/69. She went looking for him after her show, and sent a handler looking for him, but Bruce did not want any parts of it and took off through a fire door. See p. 62 of the wonderful "Bruce," by Peter Ames Carlin.
