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.

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.

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. I adored this book. 5🌟 #booked2019 #musician #spring. ( just tagging!)

By reading this book i got a better understanding of the man behind the music. He is vulnerable, happy, sometimes sad and a survivor. He told his story the way it should be with soul and honesty. He put his heart into this book, just like with everything else he does. He is an inspiration and hero. After hearing his story in his own words, i love and respect Bruce even more, which i didn't think was possible. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Born to Run | Bruce Springsteen

Robert De Niro once said he loved acting because you got to live other lives without consequences. I lived a new life every night. Each evening you‘re a new man in a new town with all of life and all of life possibilities spread out before you. For much of my life I‘d vainly sought to re-create this feeling every…single…day. Perhaps it‘s the curse of the imaginative mind. Or perhaps it‘s just the “running” in you.

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 2y

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

Dolly @Sfbeavers I got bored with what seemed like an endless turnover of band members. He goes into detail about his relationship with his dad, his life as a child, involvement with other music pros, his inspirations and performing. I‘m not a fan, I love beautiful voices.

#Rocktober #day14 #TheRiver This is one of my favourite ever songs. I was a massive Bruce Springsteen fan as a kid, I was that teenager with Springsteen posters all over the wall & magazine clippings glued to a piece of cardboard. This song in particular, with its atmospheric & sad lyrics just grabs my heart & squeezes. How could else could I interpret this prompt except with the Bruce's autobiography? He's not just a singer, he's a poet too.

Iamlisa22 I listened to this on Overdrive. I love listening to his voice tell his story 2y

I liked Springsteen‘s music. To be honest, just his mainstream hits. After reading this book, I am now a Springsteen fan. He writes exactly like his songwriting. Raw, emotional, evocative, lyrical. There were many times while reading his words, when I imagined them set to music, thinking what a great song it would make. I appreciated his honesty about his struggles with Depression. I have great respect for his passion and persistence.

I understand growing up around water and the way it can reflect a mood or a feeling. I am very impressed by how Bruce tells his story. His voice wasn't in my head so much, but there was a connection in another way. Maybe it was the water connection? I think his story telling captives, informs and inspires. I've always loved a good story and Bruce has one to tell. He is a master. He spares little and I appreciate him even more for it.

Of course there are girls, fast cars and rock'n'roll. But it's not a page-turner - he spends much more time talking about relationships- the band, the family - and reflecting. His mental health problems are discussed a lot. And I do like how he's covered the music - there's enough in there to tell you where his head was/how songs came about, but if you want more, go back and listen. It felt remarkably honest.

I've had both of these in my ears over the last few weeks.
