Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa
Bruce met Patti Scialfa in the early 1980s at The Stone Pony bar in New Jersey. That time, Patti was singing with Bobby Bandiera, her partner in the song they’ve written for Southside Johnny, “At Least We Got Shoes.”
Bruce liked her voice, so he introduced himself to Patti after the performance. From there, they spent more time together and became friends.
Bruce asked Patti to join the E Street Band in early 1984 for the U.S.A. Tour. They seemed to be a couple as many see them always together. But, Bruce was introduced to Julianne Phillips, which he married in 1985.
Bruce’s songs express the unhappiness he felt in his marriage with Julianne. When the Tunnel of Love Express Tour began, Bruce convinced Patti to rejoin. But, Patti was reluctant at first.
Bruce and Julianne separated in 1988, which started the low story of Bruce and Patti. They fell in love during the tour and then lived together.
