Don't forget this is only her side of their relationship.  If I remember correctly, she broke up with him and shortly thereafter came to one of his concerts to allegedly take photographs.  When Bruce saw her, he had security escort her out.

And I too am not so sure about Bobby Jean as expressed here.

That one line may be reminiscent of their relationship... maybe not.  I think we all know Bobby Jean was written for Little Steven.

Bruce liked those brunettes back then.  I bet Patti's glad he switched.

This is from Instagram:

Bruce Springsteen -

Bruce Springsteen - "Kicking her out" - Lynn Goldsmith, M.U.S.E. Concerts (No Nukes) - Madison Square Garden, NYC 1979 Lynn, a MAJOR music photographer, was Bruce's ex-girlfriend and after their breakup, Bruce escorted her out.

I've seen that photo long ago, plus one of him carrying her out in his arms.

What I'm wondering, is that did this occur before or after he tossed his 30th birthday cake back into the crowd?

Well, that is the story we've been told.

While that storyline might fit in nicely with Miami leaving the E Street Band, my take is that Bruce didn't need to go to Steve's house and be told by his mother that he was off and gone.

They had each other's phone numbers.

I've been at shows where Bruce dedicates Bobby Jean to the newly minted Little Steven....."go out and buy 'Voice of America' it's a great record."

The lines about liking "the same bands, the same clothes" could be about either relationship.

I'd say it is a composite....people near and dear to Bruce leaving him.

Only his shrink knows the truth!

Here is addendum to movie


Diane Rose Marguerite Lozito
1973 garage apartment in Bradley Beach
met 1972
art director
moving to Washington with husband

Rita Lozito still wasn’t quite convinced that Bruce represented the
future she hoped for Diane. “She still told me to stay with [previous boyfriend] Kale because he was in law school and would have a real job.”

Stung but not entirely defeated, Bruce called Diane’s father, Mike Lozito, in New York and impressed him too. Although not enough for the old man to forget his own wanton ways, which he traced back to the part of his upbringing that took place among other jazz musicians in New York’s nightclubs. “They were so similar,” Lozito says of her father and her boyfriend. “But he still said, ‘Nope. Musicians will always fool around.’”

If Bruce and Lozito were disappointed by her parents’ disapproval, neither of them was going to let it stop them from living their lives. Bruce bought a pair of cheap wedding rings to fool the property owners (most of whom rejected unmarried couples), and eventually found a one-bedroom apartment in the seaside neighborhood of Bradley Beach, about five minutes south of Asbury Park. Asked for a recent pay slip or some other proof that he would be able to manage the monthly rent, Bruce came back to the landlord toting a recent copy of Newsweek that noted his being signed to Columbia Records. (June 1972)
“Then they figured he was legit, even if he was such a shabby guy,” Lozito says.

people would jump onstage and grab me by the head and scream, ‘tilly! bootlegs!'"

You confuse Diane now with Lynn Goldsmith ;-)
