Bruce Springsteen at Sixty-Two

What's all the fuss about this guy they call the Boss? This new, informative essay (15,000+ words) from The New Yorker [link] will serve to explain it. I can only dream about writing about a subject I so admire this well, and it's pieces like this, one of the best ever written, that clearly reiterates why I fucking love the man. There are a couple 'new' facts that have not previously surfaced in other books and articles. Take this as a precursor to the upcoming, supposedly definitive biography about Bruce, released in November [link].
