There’s a petition drive to name the Seashell stage at New Hampshire’s Hampton Beach after a famous band.
Charlie Preston says he wants to name the stage ``E Street Bandstand,’’ which was recently completed as part of a $14.5 million beach redevelopment project.
He tells the Portsmouth Herald he wants to recognize the band’s contributions – and give Hampton Beach back it’s missing ``E’’ Street.
The online petition notes that the late Clarence Clemons, formerly a member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, once played at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom across the street.
It says when the casino was built over a century ago, it consumed E Street, eliminating that street from the beach.
