“Ladies and gentleman, Danny Clinch will join us on the harmonica.”
What began 10 years ago as a single concert at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ, Light of Day has grown into ten shows in seven countries in the U.S., Canada and Europe. The funds raised are donated to help the fight against Parkinson’s and related diseases by supporting research into better treatments, cures and support for patients.
Credited by journalists as the “highlight of the night” on Saturday, Danny joined Bruce, Joe Grushecky and friends on stage for a hot rendition of Pink Cadillac.

An excerpt from journalist Tim Donnelly’s blog:
‘Then all things went hazy when Springsteen stepped up to the mike and said, “I’d like to bring up photographer extraordinaire Danny Clinch for this number.” I soon see Gruschecky and Springsteen huddle. An audible is called. They will now do “Pink Cadillac,” instead of “Murder Inc.” Uh-oh, I thought to myself.
With a nod to Clinch, Springsteen has him blowing his harp to open the tune. In essence, for this moment, Clinch is the “Big Man”, at least in theory.
“You may think I’m foolish, for the foolish things that I do,” sung Springsteen with one eye on Clinch. “You may wonder how come I love you, when you get on my nerves like you do,” he sings.
Like a basketball player at the foul line during a tie game with no time left on the clock, Clinch steps up for his solo, with Springsteen standing two feet from him, pushing him to blow, blow, blow like the four winds.’
