“On a day like this, I remember—I’m the President, but he’s The Boss.” —President Barack Obama, 2009 Kennedy Center Awards ceremony Compiled by accomplished photographer Eric Meola—who knew “the Boss” when he was just an unknown Jersey kid with big rock and roll dreams—Streets of Fire is an intimate photographic look at Bruce Springsteen during a pivotal year in his life and career. In 1977, Springsteen was coming off the enormous success of his album, Born to Run, and in the studio working on his fourth record, Darkness on the Edge of Town—and these breathtaking candid photos are portraits of a master musician finally coming into his own. A stunning collection of photographs—some never before published—of Bruce and the E-Street Band combined with the haunting lyrics of some of Springsteen’s most unforgettable songs, Streets of Fire offers fans a privileged and rarefied look at one of rock’s most legendary and beloved icons.
An intimate, behind-the-scenes look at Bruce Springsteen as you've never seen him before. This collection includes more than seventy black-and-white photographs by photographer Eric Meola, lyrics by Bruce Springsteen, and an essay by Joyce Millman. Eric Meola first saw Bruce Springsteen perform in 1973 at New York's legendary club Max's Kansas City. He began photographing Springsteen the following year, just before the release of his breakthrough album, Born to Run, for which Meola shot the cover album art. Meola continued photographing Springsteen throughout his early career, most notably from 1977 through 1979, when Springsteen was emerging as a bona-fide rock star. This carefully curated collection of images gives us a revelatory look at Springsteen as he was coming to terms with his newfound success and creating the music for his fourth album, Darkness on the Edge of Town. Complete with an introduction from Meola, an insightful end-of-book essay by Joyce Millman, and running lyrics to several of Springsteen's songs, this book also shows how Meola's evocative portraits reveal Springsteen as he really was—an artist at the crossroads of his fledgling career, writing about dark themes and finding redemption through his own words and image.
Commemorates Bruce Springsteen's twenty-fifth anniversary as a recording artist with a volume containing his song lyrics, personal reflections, photographs, and illustrations.
In January 1982, Bruce Springsteen, then 32 and an established star, recorded a set of demos in his New Jersey bedroom for what was intended to be his follow up to 'The River', a double album issued in 1980 which had reached the top of the US Billboard. Almost thirty years later, 'Nebraska' is considered a classic, not only amongst Springsteen's canon but amongst the entire body of work recorded during the 20th century. In Heart Of Darkness, David Burke explores the album from a multitude of angles.
"This special edition of Born to run: the unseen photographs is limited to 1,350 copies, specially bound, encased in a cloth clamshell case, and signed by Eric Meola; This is copy number 269."
Over the past seven years, Bruce Springsteen has privately devoted himselfto writing the story of his life, bringing to these pages the same honesty, humor, and originality found in his songs. He describes growing up Catholic in Freehold, New Jersey, amid the poetry, danger, and darkness that fueled his imagination, leading up to the moment he refers to as The Big Bang: seeing Elvis Presley s debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. He vividly recounts his relentless drive to become a musician, his early days as a bar band king in Asbury Park, and the rise of the E Street Band. With disarming candor, he also tells for the first time the story of the personal struggles that inspired his best work. Born to Run will be revelatory for anyone who has ever enjoyed Bruce Springsteen, but this book is much more than a legendary rock star s memoir. This is a book for workers and dreamers, parents and children, lovers and loners, artists, freaks, or anyone who has ever wanted to be baptized in the holy river of rock and roll. Rarely has a performer told his own story with such force and sweep. Like many of his songs ("Thunder Road, "Badlands." "Darkness on the edge of Town. "The River" "Born in the U.S.A." "The Rising, " abd "The Ghost of Tom Joad," to name just a few). Bruce Springsteen s autobiography is written with the lyricism of a singular songwriter and the wisdom of a man who has thought deeply about his experiences.
For more than three decades, Debra L. Rothenberg has been photographing Bruce Springsteen. Her Springsteen photos have been exhibited in galleries and published in top magazines around the world. Like Bruce Springsteen, Rothenberg was born and raised in New Jersey. And now, finally, through more than 32 years of concert tours in national and international arenas and stadiums, and impromptu Jersey Shore club appearances - from the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park to nightspots like Rum Runner in Sea Bright and Cheers in Long Branch - the award-winning photographer has gathered it all in one glorious hardbound tribute to the man who inspired her dreams. BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN IN FOCUS 1980-2012 is an unparalleled collection of memorable and iconic Springsteen photography from a perspective only a true "Jersey Girl" could offer. Selected by the Wall Street Journal as one of its "Best Photo Books for Fall," called "amazing" by the New York Daily News, this 276 photo, 200-page coffee table book is a must for all fans, chronicling The Boss from "The River" Tour to "The Wrecking Ball" Tour and many Jersey Shore haunts in-between. Says Robert Santelli, executive director of the Grammy Museum and fellow Jersey Shore native who has authored books and numerous articles on The Boss: "When it comes to photographers that have documented the career of Bruce Springsteen on the Jersey Shore, Debra Rothenberg has few peers."
