A very interesting (and long) article about Springsteen. With exclusive interviews, very well written and with a very smart approach. Highly recommended for belivers and non belivers.

Excellent article or should I say 'tome'. Thanks for sharing.

Given Bruce's current affection for the classic Russian writers perhaps this may be coming soon....

Fantastic article. My Springsteen fandom peaked a long time ago, but he is a fascinating person.

This goes a long way explaining what drives him, and has a lot more background info than anything I had ever read about him before this piece.

Esp love the stories of stuff between him and Van Zandt throughout.
