In the new issue of Rolling Stone, Bruce Springsteen gives his first major interview in nearly a year – in the middle of the live action and euphoria of his current European stadium and festival tour. In the interview, Springsteen, speaks at length about the freshened, dynamic state of his E Street Band; the powerful, emotional resonance of his songs abroad, from the New Jersey tales of the early Seventies to the topical fire on last year’s Wrecking Ball; the passing of his great friend and saxophonist Clarence Clemons two years ago; and the arrival of Clarence’s nephew, Jake, blowing those iconic licks through his uncle’s original horns and taking Springsteen’s storytelling into a new, reborn phase. Now you can read additional excerpts from those interviews, including a notable announcement: Next year, Springsteen celebrates his 50th anniversary as a live performer and working musician. Find out how he got there.

I understand “Born in the U.S.A.” was actually written around the time of Nebraska; do any other songs on the new album date from that period? Actually, half of the Born in the U.S.A. album was recorded at the time of Nebraska. When we initially went in the studio to try to record Nebraska with the band, we recorded the first side of Born in the U.S.A., and the rest of the time I spent tryin’ to come up with the second side – “Bobby Jean,” “My Hometown,” almost all those songs. So if you look at the material, particularly on the first side, it’s actually written very much like Nebraska – the characters and the stories, the style of writing – except it’s just in the rock-band setting.
Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the U.S.A. was released 29 years ago today.

For those of you interested—here’s my question and Bruce’s response!

Our Sarah got to meet Bruce at the Sirius XM Radio event last night, and asked him a kick-ass question…



(Who else thought of Christopher Moltisanti from The Sopranos when he started talking about “the arc” of an album?)
