Bruce Springsteen is coming to Monmouth University's Pollak Theatre this Tuesday Jan 10 for a night of intimate conversation on his career, which will be moderated by Grammy Museum executive director Bob Santelli. This should be great as long as he doesn't get off on a political tangent which I'm assuming is not why you would want to go.

As someone who moved to Marlboro at the age of 15 and felt the loneliness and isolation of being away from all that I was connected to growing up in Union City, I identified with Bruce's music and felt like he was going through the same thing in Freehold. Listening to the "Born To Run" album would sometimes bring me to tears. It would also reaffirm my belief that, as he sings in "Thunderoad," I would "pull out of here to win." Bruce was able to take all that I was feeling and put it into words that gave me inspiration. If I were to speak to him, that would be what I'd talk to him about.

What if you could have an intimate conversation with a famous person about their career, who would you like to talk to? I asked this question on social media recently, and the responses ranged from actors to musicians. Among them, people named Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison of the Beatles. And no, those were not my responses, but if I could ask them only one question it would be "If you knew then, what you know now, would you have stayed together longer?"

Other responses included Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Jerry Garcia, George Carlin, Merril Streep and John Stamos.

Which famous person would you like to have an intimate conversation with?
