'I want it all' is what Bruce Springsteen once said. Here is an artist whose musical output can switch, seemingly effortlessly, from the gung-ho R&B swing of classic rock albums like 'Born to Run' or his biggest seller 'Born in the USA', to the heartrendingly stark acoustic outpourings of albums like 'Nebraska' and 'The Ghost of Tom Joad'. Even more perplexing are the more recent collection of venerable folk and country covers, 'We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Session'. The folksy troubadour from the tradition of Bob Dylan became a crowd pleaser with hits like Hungry Heart and the introspective Secret Garden. 'Streets of Philadelphia' won him the Oscar in 1994 for Best Original Song in a Movie. Destined to become the blue-collar rock hero whose best songs represented the common experiences of everyday American people, Bruce Springsteen was born to working-class Irish-Italian parents in the modest New Jersey town of Freehold on 23rd September 1949. Little Bruce first started playing guitar at the age of nine after seeing Elvis Presley on TV. For over 40 years he has been on top of the rock and roll stage with 18 studio albums, from his debut Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. to 2014's High Hopes. His life is dedicated to music making and committed song writing and this book examines every part of his musical career, influences and background, his deep personal relationships in Tunnel of Love to the bleak vistas in Darkness on the Edge of Town. A big 104 page picture book, some colour but mostly energetic black and white full page photos. 9" x 11".
