Bruce Springsteen is not just a singer; he is a legend, a music icon for his generation. His story can be told in several words, “the poor boy turns rich and popular”. But nothing is so simple in his biography.
Bruce’s parents were a secretary (mother) and a driver (father). The family led a poor life, that’s why Springsteen was very surprised, when his mother presented him a guitar for his 13th birthday. The boy thought, it was too expensive for his parents.
Nevertheless he started to play. Bruce was fond of rock music since his teens. He got involved into his hobby so much that even dropped out his studying at the college. Springsteen’s songs soon become popular. He looked and performed like an ordinary American worker, and his listeners immediately began to trust him.
He released his debut album in 1973, but it hadn’t become successful. Bruce was disappointed, but it inspired him to work harder, and two years later he presented the album “Born to Run”, which made him a star.
Till now the singer is not afraid of unsuccessful songs or albums. He used to tell in his interview, that he was absolutely calm, if some of his songs had failed. In any case he always tried to establish a dialogue with his viewers.
Bruce Springsteen, who is 67 now, remains not just popular, but active and healthy too. The star is the fan of jogging and swimming and keeps to a vegan diet as well.
