Bruce Springsteen Turns 72
I can’t let Bruce Springsteen’s 72nd birthday go by today without a post.
If you’ve been following this blog for awhile, you know that my freelance photography pursuits have put me in close proximity with Bruce on a number of occasions.
He’s not the greatest singer, he’s not the greatest guitar player, but he IS one of our greatest storytellers.
He crafts iconic characters in a few short lines, and he opens up your imagine to fill in their backstory. Aside from his Broadway show – in which he acknowledges that, before Broadway, he’s never worked a regular job in his life – his career been a blueprint for how to lead others while staying true to your course.
And to dream.
Will I get Bruce in front of my lens again? God willing, yes, but who knows. Nothing is ever guaranteed.
Today, I’ll spin Born To Run and Western Stars and enjoy the fruits he’s given us.
Happy birthday, Bruce!
