More Born To Run 30th Anniversary news:
The front page of Saturday’s Post-Standard sported the iconic photo of Bruce and Clarence from the BTR cover. The photographer was Eric Meola, a Syracuse native. Sean Kirst’s column “Springsteen on the verge” explores how a local kid just graduated from S.U. created one of the most memorable covers in rock ‘n’ roll history. Mr. Meola has gone on to a very successful photography career, far from the rock ‘n’ roll that gave him his first exposure.
The paper saved some of the best stuff for online readers: more interviews with Eric Meola, art director John Berg and some alternative takes from the same photo shoot.
