Twenty-time Grammy winner, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and best-selling author…Bruce Springsteen is, of course, also one of rock’s most revered songwriters and performers. In Bruce Springsteen at 75, veteran rock journalist Gillian G. Gaar reveals this rock icon through 75 career releases, performances, and accolades. This exquisite volume features:

  • Slipcased hardcover format
  • Stunning concert and candid offstage photography
  • Images of memorabilia, including gig posters, vinyl record sleeves, ticket stubs, period ads, and more
  • Gatefold Bruce Springsteen timeline
  • Unpublished 8" × 10" photo
  • An exclusive pullout poster

Through seven-and-a-half decades, Gaar covers it all:

  • Bruce’s childhood in New Jersey and early garage bands, The Castiles and Steel Mill
  • All 20 studio albums, including those with the E Street Band and as a solo artist
  • A selection of his greatest singles, like the rock standards “Born to Run,” “Hungry Heart,” and “Born in the U.S.A.”
  • Relationships with notable bandmates Steven Van Zandt and the late Clarence Clemons
  • Legendary gigs, from his early residency at New York’s The Bottom Line to his longest ever concert to his more recent Broadway show
  • His relationship with wife and bandmate, Patti Scialfa
  • Awards like his Rock Hall induction and the Presidential Medal of Freedom
  • ...and much more

Beginning with his 1973 debut LP Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. and continuing through his latest release and tour, Bruce Springsteen is one of the most beloved performers and musicians in rock ’n’ roll history, influencing countless acts for decades.

Not just for Bruce Springsteen fans, this collection of stunning photographs, momentos like concert posters and tickets and a biographical description of his long and successful career will be a great addition to any home.
