Bruce Springsteen has been rocking and rolling for the past four decades, and there’s no sign of his stopping. In the last 5 years, he’s toured the globe twice, released The Rising and Devils and Dust, and overseen the 30th anniversary edition of Born to Run.
But his life wasn’t always dedicated to making musical history. In the third grade, a nun stuffed him into a trash can she kept under his desk and told him that that was where he “belonged.”
Well she wasn’t completely correct; instead he ended up belonging at second place consistently, as surprisingly, none of his songs have been No.1.
But second-best doesn’t mean he’s not valuable; producer Robert Stigwood offered him more than $10 million to play Che in Evita. So that’s the story of Bruce Springsteen; from the trash to treasure.
