The third edition of Rock & Roll Tour of the Jersey Shore written by Stan Goldstein and Jean Mikle, in imperfect condition but perfectly usable, for a rock-bottom price.
The first two editions of this book, published in 2002 (64 pages) and 2005 (146 pages), are sold out and are no longer available. This third edition was published in 2008; while there is a newer fourth edition available, ANY of these publications are highly recommended for those who have ever wondered what sites to see when they make that pilgrimage to Bruce Springsteen's Jersey Shore.
Published in June of 2008, this third edition expanded the book to 202 pages with more than 500 photos of Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, Southside Johnny and many others who made their mark on the Asbury Park area music scene over the years. The book details close to 200 locations of historical rock 'n' roll sites in New Jersey's Monmouth, Ocean and Middlesex counties -- including Springsteen-related clubs, houses, street corners and other landmarks in Asbury Park, Freehold, Long Branch, Red Bank and beyond. More than 40 locations are listed for Asbury Park and 30 for Freehold, all well-annotated with maps, addresses and loads of history.
Among the features in the book are vignettes from fans about their local encounters with Springsteen over the years, as well as an in-depth look at rehearsals for Bruce's world tours the past 10 years at Asbury Park's Convention Hall and Paramount Theatre, and the story of how local musician Lance Larson's red baseball cap ended up in Bruce's back pocket on the cover of the "Born in the U.S.A." album.
The third edition features 16 pages of inside color photos as well as many photographs, many never before published, from top photographers Debra L. Rothenberg, Mark R. Sullivan, Lewis Bloom, John Cavanaugh and others.
Stan and Jean are lifelong New Jersey residents who have witnessed much of the Jersey Shore's rock 'n' roll history over the past 30-plus years. They have given walking tours of Springsteen sites to thousands of fans since 1999.
