Other Editions of This Title:
Through story and images, Bruce Springsteen: An Illustrated Biography chronicles the life of The Boss—one of America’s favorite rock stars and one of the biggest-selling artists in history. Springsteen’s monolithic music career spans a full half-century, from 1968 to present, and has included dozens of tours, awards, and 20 Grammys.
In-depth chapters track Springsteen through his childhood in Freehold, New Jersey, the formation of the E Street Band, the breakout album Born to Run and mega-hit Born in the U.S.A., all the way to the present where he continues to pack arenas and inspire generations of loyal fans, including his smash hit, Springsteen on Broadway. Incredibly, Springsteen’s stage presence, star power, and musicianship are as strong as ever.
With about 150 images of Springsteen, both on and off stage, this illustrated biography shows what words can’t always tell, to give fans a full and intimate look at the musician’s life.
