New Springsteen Book Includes 30 Interviews From Career
Bruce Springsteen is a musical icon who has been extremely successful at letting his music do his talking and just providing fans with a glimpse of his personal thoughts every now and then. Well a new book set titled, Talk About A Dream, will provide fans with an unprecedented look into The Boss’ life. The project features over thirty interviews with the rocker that took place between 1973 and 2013. The Q&As included in the book set will shed some light on Springsteen’s development as an artist, a thinker, activist, and humanitarian and provide insight on the meaning of many of his lyrics.
Recently Springsteen opened up and shared his thoughts on modern music and the differences between musical genres. He said: “I would like to talk about the one thing that’s been consistent over the years, the genesis and power of creativity – the power of the songwriter or let’s say just creator. So whether you’re making dance music, Americana, rap music, electonica, it’s all about how you’re putting what you do together. The elements you’re using don’t matter. Purity of human expression and experience is not confined to guitars to tubes to turntables to microchips. There is no right way, no pure way of doing it. There’s just doing it.”
Talk About A Dream is being co-authored by Christopher Phillips, who has followed the rocker for the past 20 years as the editor and publisher of Backstreets, the official Springsteen magazine, and Louis Masur, a professor of American Studies and History at Rutgers University who wrote, Runaway Dream: Born to Run and Bruce Springsteen’s American Vision.
Talk About A Dream will be released on August 20th.
