I love a good rocker bio, and Bruce Springsteen’s Born to Run does not disappoint. My first exposure to The Boss was 1984’s “Born in the USA” album. Along with some other albums from that period, I nearly wore the tape out. I have since listened to every album in his catalog, and while I have my favorite, that 1984 album will always have a special place in my heart. I’ve never seen him in concert, but it’s on my list since he is getting up there in years.

I recently picked up his book, Born to Run, and have been enjoying the hell out of it. He started writing it in 2009 and it was published in 2017. From page 1, I was sucked in, enjoying all the stories of his childhood, the ups and downs of his early life, and the insight he provides into many of his albums. There are parts I can relate to, especially his thoughts around getting older.
