The Boss is my ultimate hero. Saw him twice, tried to see him here in KC, but he didn't show up. His songs make me cry and when he howls really high, its magical. He's magical.

I saw the Boss this past year and he is amazing. He put on the best show I've ever seen. Great lyricist and singer.

Bruce is a Jersey boy, and me - a jersey girl. So naturally, he rocks! Happy 60th Birthday Boss and cheers to many more Glory Days ahead :)

Okay, Obama has been President for a year and a few months. I'm not especially impressed. But its hard not to do better than Bush. But I still like Bill the most. I just wish Obama would be nicer to Israel, … more

About this actor

Wiki

Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949), nicknamed "The Boss", is an American singer-songwriter. He records and tours with the E Street Band. Springsteen is widely known for his brand of heartland rock infused with pop hooks, poetic lyrics, and Americana sentiments centered on his native New Jersey.

Springsteen's recordings have tended to alternate between commercially accessible rock albums and somber folk-oriented works. Much of his status stems from the concerts and marathon shows in which he and the E Street Band perform intense ballads, rousing anthems, and party rock and roll songs, amongst which he intersperses whimsical or deeply emotional stories.

His most successful studio albums, Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A., epitomize his penchant for finding grandeur in the struggles of daily life in America. Because of his support for the presidential campaigns of Senator John Kerry and Senator Barack Obama, Springsteen has gradually become identified with liberal politics. He is also noted for his support of various relief and rebuilding efforts in New Jersey and elsewhere, and for his response to the September 11th attacks, on which his album The Rising reflects.

He has earned numerous awards for his work, including nineteen Grammy Awards, two Golden Globes and an Academy Award, and continues to have a strong global fan base. He has sold more than 65 million albums in the United States and 120 million worldwide.
