"If it hadn't been for
Springsteen, Adam and I

Carol said. "I can relate to
him because he is working

"On stage, he is totally
focused and into the music.
He enjoys seeing the fans
enjoy his music."

song "Rosalita."
Stone saw his first concert in 1975. In
the past four years, he has been to 25
Springsteen shows. Last week, Stone
flew to D.C. for a Springsteen concert
with some college friends. This week-
end, he'll be at Comerica Park.
"To me, the whole concert thing is
about memories of stuff I did in high
school and college," Stone said. "I get
such joy out of going to the shows,
being there and just having such a good
time.
Stone, a West Bloomfield resident,
hasn't tabulated the total cost of his
hobby, but he budgets for it.
"It's my one vice," he said. "It's worth
it.''
Interestingly, Stone even has it stipu-
lated in his contract as a radio host with
WDFN-AM 1130 sports radio that he
gets a day off if Springsteen is perform-
ing within 750 miles of Detroit.
"I'd like to see Springstecn once a
month for the rest of my life," Stone
said. "It is a little obsessive, but after five
or six weeks, I need a fix. It makes me
feel good."
Peltz, 35, remembers the days he was
completely fixated on Springsteen. In

"

high school, he listened to Springsteen
nonstop. He spent thousands of dollars
on bootleg albums, tapes and other col-
lectibles. He traded items.
"It was all I thought about," he said.
"I was fanatical. There are very few peo-
ple who put on a live show like
Springsteen does."
In the last eight years, marriage, work
and two children have helped Peltz, of
Farmington Hills, to better balance his
priorities. "There is no time to be fanati-
cal about anything."
Lately, he's spent more time taking in
live Wiggles shows than listening to his
own favorite tunes. So Peltz is really
looking forward to Sunday's concert
with friends. He'll be in the coveted
"pit" area in front of the stage.
Its not the same for me today as it
was, but it is still great," Peltz said. "I'll
always drop what I'm doing to see him
when he's in town." 1 !
