Born to Run Quotes by Bruce Springsteen
Born to Run
The experience was so exhilarating that Bruce decided to write about it. Over the past seven years, Bruce Springsteen has privately devoted himself to writing the story of his life, bringing to these pages the same honesty, humor, and originality found in his songs. He vividly recounts his relentless drive to become a musician, his early days as a bar band king in Asbury Park, and the rise of the E Street Band. This is a book for workers and dreamers, parents and children, lovers and loners, artists, freaks, or anyone who has ever wanted to be baptized in the holy river of rock and roll. Rarely has a performer told his own story with such force and sweep. He lives in New Jersey with his family. Born to Run is, like his finest songs, closely observed from end to end.

Born to Run is the third studio album by American singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen. As his effort to break into the mainstream, the album was a commercial success, peaking at number three on the Billboard and eventually selling six million copies in the United States. Two singles were released from the album: " Born to Run " and " Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out "; the first helped Springsteen to reach mainstream popularity.
We are honoured and very proud that Eric has chosen us to be the first gallery anywhere in the world to exhibit photographs from his Bruce Springsteen archive. On Saturday 11 November , from 12 — 3pm, Eric will be attending the public opening of the exhibition, and signing copies of his Bruce Springsteen book, Born To Run : the Unseen Photos, which is being published in the UK to coincide with the start of the exhibition. The book is hardcover, 12 inches square, approximately the same size as an album cover, and makes an ideal gift. As you will see, most of the photographs are made in two sizes — regular and large — and only 15 of each size will ever be sold. These are very small edition sizes. A regular size photograph measures approximately 28 x 24 inches when framed. The supersize versions are spectacular if you have the wallspace — they are approximately 42 x 34 inches in the frame.
Bruce Springsteen had two choices in shit or bust. His first two albums had been praised but not purchased — despite a back-breaking US tour schedule that saw Bruce and The E Street Band playing nightly three-hour sets — and another dud would surely exhaust the patience of his label CBS. Springsteen , by all accounts, sweated blood to get the Born To Run album right. Springsteen kept the next booking, and brought with him E Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons, whom he also wanted on the cover. The reason I picked [that specific shot] was because it was very charming to show Bruce that way.
