The Florida-born singer has collaborations with “the boss” Bruce Springsteen, Steven Van Zandt, and the E Street Band. Springsteen became a friend of his when both shared sympathies on their minimal fame, often struggling to make ends meet.
But their friendship was put into good use when the boss helped Gary achieved another massive success from this Springsteen-penned track “This Little Girl,” a single for his album, Dedication.
