Known world-wide for his hit ‘Born in the USA’, Bruce Springsteen is a rock icon. Bruce Springsteen first fell in love with rock when he watched The King Elvis Presley on the Ed Sullivan Show. He started out playing in various bands, forming the E Street Band in 1972 with guitarist Steven van Zandt and sax-player Clarence Clemons. Their album Born to Run (1975) was their first big success.
He won the Oscar for Best Original Song as the writer of the well-known ‘Streets of Philadelphia’, the music for the eponymous film. Initially known for fairly aggressive rock, Springsteen has moved towards an increasingly intimate style, as shown in his album Devils and Dust of 2005, and in We Shall Overcome, released a year later. A talented musician, a very sensitive artist and a man in touch with his roots, Bruce Springsteen is truly part of America’s musical heritage.

More recently, Bruce Springsteen worked again with the E Street Band for his 18th studio album High Hopes, released on January 2014.
