Madam Marie - R.I.P.

It is no secret that our coverage of Bruce Springsteen around these parts is a little obsessive, and this news probably only matters to the die hard fanboys, but Madam Marie, the fortune teller immortalized in "Fourth of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)," passed away last Friday. She had been telling fortunes on the Asbury Park Boardwalk since the 1930s.

I was going to wait until the Fourth to post the video below ("Fourth of July" from the Hammersmith Odeon, 1975 concert), but here it is, in all its glory, in honor of Madam Marie.
