The Promise: The Making Of Darkness On The Edge Of Town | Review - littlewhitelies.co.uk →

Looking more at the man behind the music than the man behind the myth, The Promise may be one that’s more for the fans, who will undoubtedly gush over all the never-before-seen footage and unreleased songs performed by a 27-year-old Bruce. Fans will also be green to learn that, having detached his microphone from its stand at the end of friday night’s Q&A, Bruce jokingly invited anyone in the audience to come up to the stage for a ‘spanking’.”

Bruce Springsteen and girlfriend Diane Lozito at The Main Point, 1973
From a post by “Earthslayer” on the Greasy Lake Community Forum:

Bruce and Diane started going out during summer ‘71 (she’d just graduated HS) ) but they split up in late ‘71 (which inspired “For You”- though it’s literal storyline is fiction)….they got back together in mid-72 and were together until early 1975 - she dumped Bruce, it was amicable though……then a couple/few months later Bruce met Karen Darvin.
Diane is the real “Sandy”…..she’s “Rosalita” too……she’s the girl in “Thundercrack”, she’s the ‘Crazy Janey’ in “Spirit In The Night” and she’s the ‘Terry’ in “Backstreets”.

"Unseen Springsteen - "Happy Birthday Bruce Springsteen!" Exhibition Preview
First stop - New Orleans. Meyer The Hatter, 120 St. Charles Avenue. Family-owned and operated since 1894. Bruce picked out a cap with the help of Sam Meyer. It was bigger and floppier than the one he wore in the Born to Run album cover shoot.”
