What sets this new biography apart from the rest of Springsteen tomes is the cooperation from 'The Boss', his family and bandmates.

'Bruce' is from author Peter Ames Carlin who made a name for himself writing the critically acclaimed Catch A Wave: The Rise, Fall, And Redemption Of The Beach Boys' Brian Wilson and Paul McCartney: A Life.

Springsteen and the E-Street Band are on tour this Fall and have a few shows 'in the neighborhood':

November 11, 12 - St. Paul, MN - Xcel Energy Center
November 15 - Omaha, NE - CenturyLink Arena
November 17 - Kansas City, MO - Sprint Center
