American singer, songwriter, and guitarist.
Bruce Springsteen
There ain't a note that I play on stage that canít be traced back directly to my mother and father.
Springsteen quotes
At every date he goes out and sits in every section of the hall to listen to the sound. And if it isn't right, even in the last row, I hear about it and we make changes. I mean every date too.
So let's take the good times as they go and I'll meet you further on up the road...

Springsteen Bruce quotes
Ought to be easy, ought to be simple enough:
Man meets woman, and they fall in love,
But the house is haunted and the ride gets rough.
You got to learn to live with what you can't rise above.
Springsteen Bruce
The first day I can remember looking into a mirror and being able to stand what I saw was the day I had a guitar in my hand.
Bruce Springsteen quotes
If the angels are unkind or the season is dark
Or if in the end
Love just falls apart
Well then here's to our destruction
Baby let me be your soul driver.
Bruce Springsteen
Bruce was writing five or ten songs a week. He would say, "I'm gonna go home tonight and write a great song," and he did. He was the Boss then, and he's the Boss now.
Springsteen Bruce quotes
When Bruce Springsteen sings on his new album, that's not 'fun', that's fucking triumph, man.
This is Radio Nowhere
Is there anybody alive out there?
Springsteen Bruce
You ride in a limousine the first time, itís a big thrill but after that itís just a stupid car.
Bruce Springsteen
I will always desire to play with Bruce Springsteen. He's the most inspirational, most dedicated, most committed and most focused artist I've ever seen. I like to be around people like that.

Bruce Springsteen quotes
He's so good, you really want to hit him now and again. He'd come to rehearsal and he'd write five songs in a day, and he'd do that all the time, whenever he felt like it.
Bruce Springsteen
So I bought a .44 magnum it was solid steel cast
And in the blessed name of Elvis well I just let it blast
'Til my TV lay in pieces there at my feet
And they busted me for disturbin' the almighty peace.
Judge said "What you got in your defense son?"
"Fifty-seven channels and nothin' on"
I can see by your eyes friend you're just about gone
Fifty-seven channels and nothin' on.
Springsteen quotes
We're here to re-dedicate you to The Power, The Passion, The Mystery, and The Ministry of Rock and Roll.
Springsteen Bruce
It's a fairytale so tragic there's no prince to break the spell. I don't believe in magic, but for you I will"
Springsteen Bruce quotes
There'll be no oiling up with this band. The oil has been there for years and it only gets better.
Bruce Springsteen
Last night me and Kate we laid in bed talking about getting out,
Packing up our bags, maybe heading south.
I'm thirty-five, we got a boy of our own now.
Last night I sat him up behind the wheel and said, "Son, take a good look around,
This is your hometown."
Bruce Springsteen quotes
Born down in a dead man's town;
The first kick I took was when I hit the ground.
You end up like a dog that's been beat too much
'Til you spend half your life just covering up.
Bruce Springsteen
The first time I saw Bruce he was opening up for Jethro Tull, before he had a record deal. I went to see Bruce because I was singing in that area with different bands and I wanted to get in a good rock band and he had the best rock band.
Springsteen Bruce
Then I got Mary pregnant and man that was all she wrote.
And for my nineteenth birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat.
We went down to the courthouse and the judge put it all to rest.
No wedding day smiles, no walk down the aisle,
No flowers, no wedding dress.
That night we went down to the river and into the river we'd dive,
Oh down to the river we did ride.
