The story of all Bruce Springsteen albums | Songs, images, fun facts and videos
It was the year 1971, Bruce was around 23, but despite his youth he had an experience of almost 10 years playing with different bands in multiple places in New Jersey.
- No one knew him yet, but he wanted to take over the world, he had a great group of musicians behind (the future E Street Band) and what he called a magic trick, which for us is his honest way of portraying reality.
Bruce Springsteen Blinded by the Lights
1973. First album, Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J.
- It was not a commercial success, but the critics praised it.
- It includes the song “Blinded by the Lights”. That name was used for the great film of 2019 with Bruce Springsteen songs as a leitmotif and soundtrack.
1973. The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle
- 2nd album with a slight shift from Folk to R&B.
- As part of the tracklist, “Rosalita”, one of the most played and acclaimed songs in his live shows. You can see it in the video.

- Believe it or not, the album didn’t reach No. 1, however, its namesake song is The Boss’ most emblematic tune 🎸

Bruce Springsteen Born in the U.S.A.
- Born in the U.S.A. is a song against the Vietnam War that has a very special story behind:
- Back in the 80s, Bruce was 30 years old, he was driving near a small town in Phoenix, stopped at a gas station and saw a book called “Born on the 4th of July” by Vietnam veteran Ron Kovic.
- He stopped for a few days at a nearby hotel and saw a man in a wheelchair, who turned out to be Ron Kovic himself. Ron shared his experience with Bruce and visited a veterans center with him.
- That experience, together with that of friends of The Boss who perished in the war, inspired Born in the U.S.A.
Bruce Springsteen Dancing in the Dark
- Dancing in the Dark was the most successful of the 7 singles from Born in the U.S.A. album
- The video for the song shows a young Courteney Cox (Mónica on Friends series) dancing on stage with Springsteen. That helped launching her actress’s career.

- All his albums were reissued in the UK and they all hit the charts

How old is Bruce Springsteen?
Bruce Springsteen is 71 years old, well, only if you read this article in 2020 (when it was first written), otherwise, you’ll need to do the subtraction: he was born on Septembre 23, 1949.
Despite his age, he keeps impressively fit and carries on to give amazing 4-hour rock concerts. I guess that’s why people are so curious about Bruce’s age.
By the way, just in case you are wondering where Bruce Springsteen was born, of course, it was in United States, in the state of New Jersey, more concretely in Long Branch.
Is 'Blinded by the Light' film based on Bruce Springsteen?
Maybe when reading the question your thoughts turned to the marvelous song by The Weeknd, Blinding Light or to Manfred Mann, Blinded by the Lights. Nothing like that, we are talking about a film that tells the story of a British-Pakistani Muslim teenager whose life changes radically when he discovers The Boss tunes.
The movie is not based on Bruce’s life, the meaning behing Blinded by the Light is just what inspiring Springsteen’s music is to the main character. Of course, there are tons of Springsteen songs in Blinded by the Light Soundtrack.
Mi favourite part of Blinded by the Lights is when the only other Muslim in the high school approaches the main character and gives him 2 records from The Boss, saying:
Bruce Springstten is the direct line to all that is true in this shitty world.
Why is Bruce Springsteen called 'The Boss'?
The nickname comes from 1972, his early years in the band, that wasn’t called “The E Street Band” yet. He was in charge of the money at that time. After the show, he would get the money and then distribute it among his band mates.
Since then, his band mates began to call him “The Boss”, the one who manages the money.
