The Boss

‘Bruce Springsteen’ born in ‘Long Branch, New Jersey’ (1949) is a singer-songwriter widely known for his brand of poetic lyrics, ‘Americana’ working class, sometimes political sentiments centered on his native ‘New Jersey’ and his lengthy and energetic stage performances.

‘Springsteen’ had been inspired to take up music at the age of seven after seeing ‘Elvis Presley’ on The ‘Ed Sullivan Show’ in (1956). ‘Springsteen’ signed a record deal with ‘Columbia Records’ in (1972) with the help of ‘John Hammond’, who had signed ‘Bob Dylan’ to the same label a decade earlier.

‘Springsteen’ is probably best known for his album ‘Born in the U.S.A.’ (1984), which sold 15 million copies in the United States, 30 million worldwide, and became one of the best-selling albums of all time with seven singles hitting the ‘Top 10’.
