Set to be released next Tuesday, September 27th, Bruce Springsteen’s memoir, Born to Run, is expected to run right off the shelves.
Springsteen got the bug to write something other than a song after writing a first-person account on his web site about his experience playing the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2009. Shortly after that, he started writing Born to Run, which includes details about his childhood growing up in New Jersey and the start of The E Street Band. Then back in 2014, he published Outlaw Pete, an illustrated book for adults based on one of his songs.
In a video released on his Facebook page this week, he said “Writing prose has its own set of rules. You’ve got to create the music without the music.”
Speaking of music, Springsteen will also be releasing retrospective companion album called “Chapter and Vers” on September 23. The album includes five previously unreleased tracks.
Born to Run is already a bestseller on Amazon, and considering the book will be released in 22 countries, and considering “The Boss” is “The Boss,” it’s sure to be a bestseller on just about every other list out there.
