BruceBruce by Peter Ames Carlin

RRP £20

After 3 decades of groundbreaking music Bruce Springsteen still manages to amaze audiences around the world with his live shows and bring new fans to his music with every album release. Highly acclaimed music critic Peter Carlin tracks the Boss's dazzling ascent to fame, whilst painting a vivid portrait of the real Springsteen: an insistently private man who nevertheless would do anything for his fans. With unprecedented access to Springsteen, his family, friends and management, Carlin presents a riveting and highly personal account of Springsteen's life. Having vowed he wouldn’t participate, Springsteen changed his mind and campaigned for Obama in the recent Presidential Election – perhaps his eloquence made the difference in that tight race for the White House.
