Twenty Grammy Awards, two Golden Globes, an Academy Award, a Tony Award for the hit “Springsteen on Broadway”…. and cash. This is just a small list of the material that Bruce Springsteen has accumulated over the years. Then there’s the Presidential Medal of Freedom Barack Obama bestowed on him in 2016. Not bad for a kid born into a blue-collar family in Freehold, New Jersey. And although none of his singles reached No. 1 on a Billboard list, Rolling Stone magazine praised his talent, ranking him 23rd on its list of “greatest artists of all time.” He definitely earned his nickname “The Boss”.

In his speech at his induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1999, Springsteen reflected on the influence his parents had on his life, from his tumultuous relationship with his father to his mother understanding exactly why he needed a $60 Sunburst guitar. “My parents’ experience shaped mine. They shaped my policy and they alerted me to what is at stake when you are born in the United States. And of the E Street Band – which has been an integral part of his more than 50-year career – Springsteen said: “Everyone wants to know how I feel about the band. Shit, I married one of them. That would, of course, be singer-songwriter and guitarist Patti Scialfa.
