Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen was born in September 23rd 1949 in long branch New Jersey. Some of his songs include 'Born In The U.S.A' , 'Dancing In The Dark' and 'Born To Run' .
I would say Bruce is an idol of mine, I've grown up with his music. One of my earliest memories is listening to thunder road and thinking how great it was, i also heard recently that it was the first song lady gaga learn't to play on the piano. He has a lot of fans in the music business and in other high places such as Barack Obama, who once said he ran for president because he couldn't be Bruce Springsteen .
One of the reasons why i like Bruce is that he tells it like it is and his lyrics have a lot of meaning , unlike some other artists, and most of his songs are based on true events. Some songs paint a vivid picture in your mind, other songs make you want to laugh and others cry. Then you have the ones that put a huge smile on your face and can't resist singing along. I was very fortunate to see Bruce in concert during the summer. The two hour wait in the rain was all worth it! he played for at least three hours, i think that's pretty cool as some artists half his age play for much less. One of my favourite moments from the night would have to be when Bruce helped a young child from the crowd on stage and let her sing along with him, i have to say it was one of the cutest things I've ever seen. Overall Bruce is a very talented artist and just a pure musical genius!
