New Upcoming Book alert: Boss: Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band – The Illustrated History
Gillian G. Gaar is a new author to me, but from what I’ve searched (reviews from her past books), she have delivered plenty of books with nice reviews. Looking forward to see this one.
There’s a reason his nickname is The Boss–find out why in this illustrated history of Bruce Springsteen, an American songwriting legend.
Bruce Springsteen is a platinum-shifting, stadium-filling rock star, but he is also more nuanced than that. He is a man of the people, making conventional-and-proud-of-it rock music aimed at the American working class.
A supreme songwriter, Springsteen is a rock ‘n’ roll legend, and this lavishly illustrated book is an examination of his life and music. A comprehensive overview of a fascinating and unique artist, Boss: Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band – The Illustrated History is a tribute to Springsteen’s body of work, from the rock anthem Born to Run to his sepia-toned analysis of working-class misery, The River. There’s Springsteen’s gnarly, Bonnie and Clyde-style tableaux Atlantic City, as well as his debunking of guys’ yearnings for youthful Glory Days. Throughout it all, Springsteen has demonstrated that he knows how to create a classic track. Find out once and for all why his nickname is The Boss.
