Born to runBook is much than a legendary rock star’s memoir 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 Like many of his songs “Thunder Road” “Badlands” “Darkness on the Edge of Town” “The River” “Born in the USA” “The Rising” and “The Ghost of Tom Joad” to name just a few Bruce Springsteen’s autobiography is written with the lyricism of a singular songwriter and the wisdom of a man who has thought deeply about his experiences. Writing about yourself is a funny business but in a project like this the writer has made one promise to show the reader his mind In these pages I've tried to do thisAnd The Boss certainly delivered Gah I cannot compliment this book enough Springsteen writes his autobiography like he writes his music with an honest voice and in the most beautifully stunning way He has a way with words They reach inside you and open you up heart and soulReading about how Springsteen made it to the top is so inspiring A man who came from nothing and would not stop until he had everything All in a bid to achieve the elusive American dream but what happens when you achieve the American dream How does your music and style of writing change How do you relate to the life you used to have and the dreams you used to strive for All of this is covered in this bookHe documents his father's battles with mental health before exploring the dark looming cloud hanging over him He himself has inherited the susceptibility to depression and talks about it in such an open and honest way that only Springsteen couldOne of my major takeaways from this book is that Bruce Springsteen is a guy that will always empty the tank in everything he does and he infuses that philosophy into the E Street Band They will play for at least 3 hours every night like it's the last concert they'll ever play That is showmanship That is passion That is Bruce Springsteen

Excuse me as I uietly fangirl over here Yes I'm 20 30 years younger than most of this fanbase but this was the music I was raised on I literally didn't know of pop until middle school That's right My parents hid decades of music from me and I couldn't have had a happier childhood I was a grouchy old woman by the time I hit middle school NSYC Turn that boppy crap down You all should be listening to music with soulAs a symptom of this I can sing to nearly every Classic Rock song on the radio but I have no idea the artistbandtitle forgive me I learned the songs when I was four Ergo I have decided to educate myself and what better way than by reading books Figure 1 Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band circa 1977 To be perfectly honest I only know which one is Springsteen because he's in the center I was FOUR okay I also always thought it was the East Street Band This memoir is fairly in depth featuring over 500 pages covering Springsteen's childhood to present day Every time dates or big world events were mentioned I was taken aback It's a weird duality because I listened to his music in the mid 90s I made the assumption throughout my childhood that the music was made in the mid 90s So when I would read about Springsteen getting the first TV on his block dodging the draft or causing tension by including black band members my immediate thought would be but surely he's not that old Figure 2 Bruce Springsteen in the 80s I guess he really is that old Unlike many memoirs of the famous he does than just name dropping and humble bragging When he spoke about the early stages of his career Springsteen cited the typical motivations of the times Presley and the Beatles but he gave far page space to the real people friends and folks around his hometown He gave credit to everyone especially to his mother who scrimped and saved to buy him his first guitarWe do read about a few particularly memorable misadventures for example Springsteen and many of his friends decided to dodge the draft They wanted to continue their music they didn't want to fight and most importantly they wanted to stay alive So they concocted a plan to take full advantage of the mentally unfit excuse We proceeded as followsStep 1 Make a mess out of your forms Like them know they're trying to corral a drug addicted gay patholically bed wetting lunatic who can barely write his name into the US militaryStep 2 Make them believe it They proceeded to Act the mumbling bumbling swishing don't give a fuck about orders freak On STP LSD and anything else you can get your hands on A hippie outcast destroyer of troop moral corroder of discipline much trouble than you're worth Get the fuck out of here joke of a recruit He used his time saved from the military to launch his music career though he did hit uite a few rough patches From botched contracts to flighty band members he's seen it all But throughout his career he had one singular goal I wanted to craft a record that sounded like the last record on earth Like the last record you might hear The last one you'd ever need to hear One glorious noise then the apocalypse And to me he's achieved it The 2018 PopSugar Reading Challenge a book with song lyrics in the titleAudiobook CommentsIt's a doozy this audiobook stretches 18 hours but hey it's read by the author WoohooYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading
