  1. I remember the concert Bruce and the Range did at William and Mary Hall to debut “Night on the Town”. Bruce introduced “Fire on the Cross” by talking about growing up in Williamsburg and seeing signs posted for the Ku Klux Klan. He noted that “Stranded on Easy Street” was about his brother (don’t know which one) and his first trip to California. Oh, and “Special Night” alluded to an incident at Lake Matoaka at the College of William and Mary. Just some remembrances from “a long time ago”. P.S. the picture of the band walking on the wooden bridge was taken on a very scenic road that runs between Carter’s Grove and Colonial Williamsburg.
