Asbury Park & The Stone Pony

It was a big thrill to go to Asbury Park, even though a lot of it is shut down now and the main buildings  are not quite derelict, but certainly needing renovation ! In amongst these relics from the past, the Stone Pony survives, and looks like it is thriving with bands playing pretty much every night. This is the place that the East Street Band, and South Side Johnny and the Asbury Dukes made their names. On a rainy May afternoon it was great to be able to step inside the Stone Pony, see all the photo's, the stage and the bar. It's little bit of rock history, and it would have been great to have been there one night when the East Street Band played  :
