Bruce Springsteen is a legendary American singer, songwriter, and guitarist. Springsteen has recorded numerous number one albums, received twenty-one Grammys, and has been inducted into the Rock and Rock Hall of Fame.

In March, 2012, Springsteen released his seventeenth album entitled Wrecking Ball. The album became his tenth number one record.
Fabulously energetic, I danced all throughout the 3 hour concert. I took my daughters for their first live taste of Bruce. They went for me, but ended up as fans. Bruce did a short memorial for Clarence that was very moving, but Jake has been able to step up and do an admirable job in a role that no one else could. All around cheers for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street band!
What an amazing performer! I had no idea he would be so full of energy. He knows how to work a crowd! One of my top 5 concerts for sure!!! Check out my video clip for Born to Run: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWYOQjvyFp0
Bruce Springsteen Information Continued
Bruce Springsteen's eloquence in expressing ordinary, everyday problems has earned him numerous awards, including Grammy Awards and an Oscar, along with a huge fan base. His most famous albums, Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A., epitomize his penchant for finding grandeur in the struggles of daily life.
Bruce Springsteen has gradually become identified with progressive politics. His hit single "Born in the U.S.A." was so popular that Ronald Reagan and Walter Mondale both attempted to co-opt it during the 1984 presidential campaign, misinterpreting it as a plainly nationalistic song rather than one about the negative after-effects of the Vietnam War. Bruce Springsteen is also noted for his support of various relief and rebuilding efforts in New Jersey and elsewhere, and for his response to the September 11, 2001 attacks on which his album The Rising reflects.
His recordings have tended to alternate between commercially accessible rock albums and somber folk-oriented works. Much of Bruce Springsteen's iconic status in America as well as his popularity stems from his concerts, marathon shows in which he and the E Street Band energetically perform intense ballads, rousing anthems, and party rock and roll songs.
Bruce Springsteen has long had the nickname "The Boss", a term which he was initially reported to dislike but now seems to have come to terms with - he sometimes jokingly refers to himself as such on stage.
He is often regarded as a musical heir to Elvis Presley, Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan.
