05.10.02 New York City, NY, ´´Saturday Night Live´´ (rehearsal) during ´´Lonesome Day´´ (1st take)
´´(Bruce bursts into laughter during the line ´´Better ask questions before you shoot´´ as Patti walks onstage late)….I´m gonna find my way through this lonesome day….Pittsburg! *….´´
[*"Pittsburg" could be in reference to a gig during the Born In the U.S.A-tour when Roy Bittan and Nils Lofgren were still playing ping-pong backstage when the rest of the band was already starting ´´Born in the U.S.A´´ onstage. This incident is mentioned in the article in the November 1992 issue of Musician).]
