Born to Run
Born to Run | Bruce Springsteen
In 2009, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band performed at the Super Bowls halftime show. The experience was so exhilarating that Bruce decided to write about it. Thats how this extraordinary autobiography began.
Over the past seven years, Bruce Springsteen has privately devoted himself to writing the story of his life, bringing to these pages the same honesty, humor, and originality found in his songs.
He describes growing up Catholic in Freehold, New Jersey, amid the poetry, danger, and darkness that fueled his imagination, leading up to the moment he refers to as The Big Bang: seeing Elvis Presleys debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. He vividly recounts his relentless drive to become a musician, his early days as a bar band king in Asbury Park, and the rise of the E Street Band. With disarming candor, he also tells for the first time the story of the personal struggles that inspired his best work, and shows us why the song Born to Run reveals more than we previously realized.
Born to Run will be revelatory for anyone who has ever enjoyed Bruce Springsteen, but this book is much more than a legendary rock stars memoir. This is a book for workers and dreamers, parents and children, lovers and loners, artists, freaks, or anyone who has ever wanted to be baptized in the holy river of rock and roll.
Rarely has a performer told his own story with such force and sweep. Like many of his songs (Thunder Road, Badlands, Darkness on the Edge of Town, The River, Born in the U.S.A., The Rising, and The Ghost of Tom Joad, to name just a few), Bruce Springsteens autobiography is written with the lyricism of a singular songwriter and the wisdom of a man who has thought deeply about his experiences.

“My music would always be my identity.”

So much humility, humanity and heart. From his humble beginnings, Springsteen never forgot what it took to achieve fame. He shares his faults and achievements and lays bare the long road to his ultimate success. It‘s easy to find this message in every story , note, melody and song.
This was a re-read for me but I found it much more engaging 2nd time around🎧🙌🏻♥️🎵 #NonFictionNovember

Graywacke I really enjoyed this too, although I‘ve only listened once. It‘s nice bonus that he reads it himself. 9mo

Cinfhen He really comes across as genuine @Graywacke @Megabooks @AmyG and while I found the book long-winded the first time I listened, on this re-listen I was really moved and inspired. I did spend time listening to each song he referenced in the book, which totally added to my enjoyment. So happy I was compelled to listen again. 9mo
Graywacke @Cinfhen great idea to add the songs in while listening to the book. I wasn‘t that organized. (Although he plays a lot when my phone plays random, so there was some overlap.) 9mo

3-9 May 2021 (audiobook)
A long, but mostly enjoyable, memoir from someone who is obviously a great musician. I would query whether he is quite as great or as groundbreaking as he proclaims, but am willing to accept many would agree with him. What hit me was his description of his battles with depression in his 60s - a time when it seems to hit many men. Mental health issues are truly frightening and can affect anyone.

1. I listen to almost anything. I love iheart radio. My favorite stations are KUSC, KKJZ, KUTX, & KEXP. The Beatles are my favorite, but I love playing music mentioned in the books I'm reading.
2. I'm realizing that my vacations haven't been that great. Road trips have always been fun, but I don't have a favorite.
3. Being 8 was pretty great.
4. Hearing laughter, but it has to be genuine.

This one is an autobiography about his life growing up, the difficult relationship with his father, his early years musically, his self doubts and ongoing battle with depression, marriage, being a parent, his creativity, his fame and endurance.

It's beautifully written, it's funny, it's sad, it's informative and also filled with wisdom.

Long live The Boss! ❤

Got a favourite song of his?

(Now to get back to Slaughterhouse 🔖)

Given his songs, I shouldn‘t be surprised that Bruce Springsteen, one of the biggest rock stars in the world, comes across as a normal, thoughtful, down to earth, relatable guy in this book. I would love to sit out on the patio with him, shooting the breeze, watching the sunset. I‘m glad he‘s retained humility in the face of his tremendous success.

I finished this book tonight. I have been a Springsteen fan as long as I can remember, but I have a whole new appreciation for him now. He seems very well read by his references and jokes made. I feel like he was refreshingly candid (particularly about his mental health struggles) while simultaneously being respectful and discreet to those in his past. This is not a tell all by any means. If you love his work, you‘ll probably love this book.

It‘s been about impossible to put this book down since I started it. Anyone who has had a tumultuous relationship with a parent to find out later that mental illness was a contributing factor will find kinship with Mr Springsteen. The first couple of sentences of this paragraph resonate greatly with me.

Susanita The story he tells about his father in front of “The River” on his live album had me 😭 3y

The Boss came to Nationals Park a couple years ago, and my boss couldn‘t use his ticket. The seat location was scary! I stayed there for a while, but at some point (to paraphrase a previous prompt) I went down for a pee and I never went back. The rest of the concert I danced on the concourse and talked to a woman I‘d met earlier.

They didn‘t end with #Borntorun but with Jungleland. Clarence‘s nephew played saxophone. I cried.

This is a memoir that is so much more than a memoir. If you are a fan or not, you will find something to love about this book. Bruce himself reads this book and was nominated for a Grammy for the book. It‘s a love story about music and Bruce‘s passion about connecting with people. Bruce wrote this from his heart and soul.

This book is everything an autobiography should be. It's a record of a life but Springsteen manages to walk this amazing line where he's being totally open without being too revealing, informative without betraying confidences. He's vulnerable, insightful, and reflective where his story most needs it. The writing is stunning both at the sentence level and in terms of its epic scope. I love this book.

Cinfhen Great review...I did this as an audio and Springsteen reading his book was sooooo sexy 4y

One of my favorite memoirs ever...and I‘m not really a big fan of his music. I loved hearing his stories of growing up, starting bands, and becoming a rock star. His personal stories about his family and dealing with depression made this book amazing though. He‘s realistic about his talents and faults. #audiobook #nonfiction #pop18 #songlyrics

Loved this book. One of the best autobiographies I've ever read. It is not simply the story of his life. It is a beautifully written, moving, honest memoir. Much like his songs. Towards the end he speaks to the reader directly and says he hopes to 'rock your very soul'. And he does. I would highly recommend this book
