Bruce Springsteen Biography
Bruce Springsteen was born on September 23, 1949, in Long Branch, New Jersey. At the age of 13, Bruce Springsteen bought himself a used guitar after being inspired by a television special featuring Elvis Presley. Soon after learning how to play the guitar, Bruce Springsteen began playing piano and harmonica and eventually began performing at local clubs and bars.
In 1972, Bruce Springsteen signed a record contract with Columbia Records and released his first album the following year. Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. (1973) and his second album, The Wild, the Innocent, & the E Street Shuffle (1973), were released to critical acclaim but without much commercial success. In 1974, Bruce Springsteen finalized the structure of the E Street Band. Membership has changed over time, but currently includes Garry Tallent on bass guitar and tuba, Max Weinberg on drums, Roy Bittan on piano and synthesizer, Steve Van Zandt on lead guitar, Nils Lofgren on pedal steel guitar, and Patti Scialfa on backing and duet vocals and acoustic guitar. It wasn’t until the release of Born to Run (1975) that Bruce Springsteen was sent into superstardom as a singer and songwriter. By this stage in his career, everyone was looking to buy Bruce Springsteen tickets. Critics were wild with Brucemania, and one of them even left his job to become Bruce Springsteen’s manager, according to All Music Guide.
Bruce Springsteen is perhaps best known for his 1984 album, Born in the U.S.A.. The album saw seven hit singles released — including “Dancing in the Dark,” “Cover Me,” “Born in the U.S.A.,” “I’m on Fire,” “Glory Days,” “I’m Goin’ Down,” and “My Hometown” — and sold over ten million copies. At that time, the album was the best-selling album in the history of Columbia Records, and the single “Dancing in the Dark” won a 1984 Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. The song was so popular upon release that former President Ronald Reagan used it during his re-election campaign. Today, with a 15x platinum rating, it remains Bruce Springsteen’s best-selling album.
Throughout the course of his career, Bruce Springsteen has received plenty of critical acclaim and awards. He has racked up 18 Grammy Awards as well as an Academy Award in 1994. The Academy Award was given to Bruce Springsteen for his song “Streets of Philadelphia,” which was written for the soundtrack to the film Philadelphia (1993). After winning the Academy Award for Best Song, the album went on to win multiple Grammys the following year. Springsteen was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1999 and since then hasn’t stopped writing conscientiously charged albums. The same year, Bruce Springsteen reformed the E Street Band, and they went on the Reunion Tour, including a three-night ending spectacular at Shea Stadium. Bruce Springsteen released The Rising in 2002, which reflects in part on the aftermath of the September 11th attacks in New York. He has also released the albums Devils and Dust (2005), We Shall Overcome (2007), Magic (2007), Working on a Dream (2009), Wrecking Ball (2012) and High Hopes (2014).
