Happy Birthday Bruce Springsteen!
Rock 'n' Roll legend, Bruce Springsteen turns 64 today and we're wishing him the best of all birthdays. For decades The Boss has been busting out chart-topping tunes that combine rock, blues, folk and country. From Thunder Road to Born in the U.S.A. this patriotic rocker continuously produces the kind of music you never get sick of – no matter how many times you’ve heard it.
And they don't call him The Boss for nothing – his most recent album, Wrecking Ball, hit No. 1 in 16 different countries making that his 10th album to hit No.1. Not to mention that its single, We Take Care of Our Own was nominated for three Grammy awards.
Since 1973's Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J., which found Springsteen heralded as the second coming of Bob Dylan, The Boss has dedicated his career to charting the hope and anguish of everyday people, the majesty of his compositions imbuing hard luck stories with epic grandeur.
He hasn't really taken a break, either. With or without the E Street Band, Springsteen is a touring machine who keeps up a regular release schedule, with nary a career misstep. His discography is staggeringly dense and rewarding. The fact that he probably has the stamina to keep it up for another couple decades is simply amazing and we can't wait to hear what he's got in store for us next.
Whether he's belting Springsteen classics or catchy new material, seeing him play live is the best way to get your dose of The Boss – so check out him and his E Street Band tear through Dancing in the Dark at this year’s Rock in Rio festival below.
Happy birthday Bruce and keep it up!
