We are reaching way back this time, almost 40 years, to an interview with a 28 year-old Bruce Springsteen.
The year was 1978, and a pre-MTV J.J. Jackson was the Rock n Roll Expert for KABC 7 in Los Angeles. Complete with his 70s era mustache, Jackson takes us backstage at the Forum on July 5th after Springsteen just spent over 3 hours rocking the house.
This is not only Springsteens very first TV interview, Jackson also shares exclusive footage from that nights performance.

A decade later, Weird Al Yankovic sat down for a chat with Bruce (sort of) for this very insightful interview.
