Review

."..This collection--which compiles an extensive number of interviews and encounters with Springsteen dating back to 1973--is a great illustration of how, when the appropriate subject is chosen, no one on earth can say it better than [than Bruce] himself. ... Impressively thorough ... and highly recommended."--"Rolling Stone"



A remarkable journey across the arc of a singular career sometimes harrowing, ultimately heroic, revealing a tremendous strength of character as the Boss stayed true to his ideals, even in the face of what he calls catastrophic success. A great read about a genuine American hero. If you re hungry to learn about the true soul of this remarkable man, look no further: it s all here. Paul Zollo, author of "Songwriters on Songwriting""

Bruce Springsteen has been interviewed around the world on radio and television and by newspapers, fanzines, and general-interest and music magazines. Many of his most engrossing conversations are housed in this book. Fans should welcome this valuable collection. I know I do. Harvey Kubernik, author of "Canyon"" of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon""

A great collection. The only other way to experience this much of Springsteen s voice is to see him in concert. Patrick Harbron, longtime Springsteenphotographer"

"Don't get me wrong, "Springsteen on Springsteen" is definitely geared toward someone who already knows the finer points of the life and music of Bruce Springsteen. But it is definitely worth making room for on the Boss Bookshelf." Bob Ruggiero for the "Houston Press""

"But what overall makes "Springsteen on Springsteen" a fun read despite its potentially academic or historical air is the focus Burger spent on selecting pieces where Springsteen does the talking. This offers the reader an opportunity to see forty years of Springsteen through his voice, though this time the speaking one rather than the singing." "Guitar Digest""

Product Description

Bruce Springsteen has always taken interviews seriously. As he told critic Neil Strauss in 1995, "If I have some work that I've done and want to talk about, that's why I end up doing interviews".

Here is an unprecedented collection of Springsteen on Springsteen, spanning the past four decades.

It begins in 1973, when he is earning $75 a week and struggling to emerge from the New Jersey bar circuit. It ends in 2012, by which time The Boss has achieved worldwide fame and has shared a platform with the likes of John Kerry and Barack Obama.

This collection features interviews by well-known media figures including, US talk show host Charlie Rose, novelist Nick Hornby, and rock critics Paul Williams and Neil Strauss.

It also includes rare gems from smaller periodicals that even serious Springsteen fans may not know.

In addition are transcripts of radio and TV interviews that have not previously appeared in print.

Taken together they trace the unique trajectory of an incomparable artist hanging onto his integrity throughout the days of youthful ambition and – a bigger challenge – the years of superstardom.
