Monday Open Thread

On this day in 1949, in Rockaway Beach in the borough of Queens, in the city of New York, the one, the only Professor Roy Bittan was born. Roy hooked up with Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band in 1974, and his piano has been a hallmark of the E Street sound ever since.

Here's Roy and Bruce and the rest of the band in a live performance from 1978 of the greatest rock & roll song ever written. I dare you to listen to that piano riff at the end and not get it stuck in your head! (You're welcome, Stef)

Talk amongst yourselves.
