Today The Boss aka Bruce Springsteen is a young 67. Many moons ago he was 26 the year was 1975 and he had no hits yet. Could that be possible? We sometimes forget that the greatest rockers once struggled to be known just as much as we continue to struggle to have our voices heard through our writing and poetry. If we get lucky we become published writers and well, as for Springsteen now there is no doubt as to the great music he has come out with. A couple of years before in 1973 Springsteen had been tapped by Columbia Records and was being introduced as the Next Big Thing. At first when no one picked up on him he was first introduced as the “New Dylan” and then as America’s new “Street Poet”. Finally his big break came in 1975 when his first Top 40 hit was released “Born to Run”. Bruce Springsteen came into this world in 1949 in Long Branch, New Jersey. His debut album was titled Greetings from Ashbury Park which came out in 1973 and still didn’t rocket him to stardom. It would take his third album to make a breakthrough along with his now American classic “Born to Run”. Two weeks later he had cover articles in Time and Newsweek magazines and as they say the rest is rock and roll history.

I liked Born in the USA and dancing in the dark. A few others were decent.

I have one album only because I liked a song on it. Otherwise, I'm not much of a fan. Born in the USA was my fav, and Dancing in the Dark was another one I like.

I have really never listened to a lot of his music, do like what I have heard. He has a new book out now, "Born to Run." I heard an interview with him and it sounds like a fascinating book.

Big fan of Bruce Springsteen, but my husband hates Mr. Springsteen's politics, so he will not listen to Springsteen.

I am a "rebel" as I always greatly disliked Springsteen!

and you must state that with the rebel yell @JohnRoberts we all have our favorites and not always will we agree. I never though I would like some of the music you post but I do so it is also a learning process.
