I was thinking very early this morning of the passing of Bruce Springsteen’ long time personal trainer Tony Strollo age 40? this week. Tony was also so nice to the Bruce fans at the shows he had become one of Bruce’s key people on the road, taking on a bigger role with the passing of Terry Magovern. Tony was a real nice guy so young, married family, kids, grew up in the area,so sad to hear of his passing. I hope all the people that benefited from his long time Bruce camp association, help and remember his young family.
I am sure Bruce Springsteen will help provide for his family, his children are very young. The new Bruce Springsteen video “We take care of our own” has new meaning to me today. and rings very true this week . I have not heard this anywhere in the local media I am sure people like Stan Goldstein know about it, not sure why its not been reported, I just wanted to pay my respects.
Fans if you ever hung outside the shows at convention hall during rehearsals, or walking the streets with Bruce in Europe, Tony was always there and would come out and say hello during breaks.
He died while in California
