May 2nd and 3rd are arguably the two most important dates in the life and career of Bruce Springsteen.
On May 2nd, 1972, he auditioned for Columbia A&R executive John Hammond at the label's New York City headquarters.
What was supposed to be a 15-minute audition turned into a two-hour performance and an invitation from Hammond to return the next day to cut demos.
So on May 3rd, 1972, Springsteen returned and recorded a 14-song solo acoustic demo.
The anniversary was not lost on Springsteen, as a photo of him and the then E Street Band was posted on his socials in commemoration.
