Who's The Boss?
Bruce Springsteen, known as The Boss, once said, "When I was growing up, there were two things that were unpopular in my house. One was me, and the other was my guitar." Springsteen got the music bug when he was seven years old and saw Elvis Presley perform on "Toast of the Town." He bought his first guitar when he was 13 and joined The Castiles, his first band, a year later. Over the next dozen years, Springsteen formed, joined and reconfigured many bands, wrote and performed and cut albums.
It wasn't until music critic Jon Landau wrote in Rolling Stone magazine," I have seen rock & roll future and its name is Bruce Springsteen," that Springsteen and his E Street Band began to make a mark on the music scene. In December, he will be among the five recipients of 2009's Kennedy Center Honors. Happy 60th birthday to The Boss - Grammy-winner, Rock 'n Roll Hall-of-Famer, megastar Bruce Springsteen, born on September 23, 1949.
