About this item
Before he was the swaggering, stadium-packing megastar, Bruce Springsteen was a brooding introvert, desperate to strike a balance between his nuanced songwriting and the heft of his backing band. Clinton Heylins revelatory biography, E Street Shuffle, chronicles the evolution and influence of Springsteens E Street Band as they rose from blue-collar New Jersey to the heights of rock stardom. The bands playersmost notably saxophonist Clarence Big Man Clemons, guitarist Little Stevie Van Zandt, and drummer Max Weinbergbecame Springsteens comrades in concert, helping him find the elusive sound and sonic punch that highlighted The Bosss most creative period, including Darkness on the Edge of Town, Born to Run, and Born in the USA. Fans will also learn another side of Springsteen, one punctuated with his clashes with studio executives seeking a commercially viable, radio-friendly album, and his temporary disbanding of the E Street Band to pursue projects like the eerie acoustic of Nebraska. Coinciding with the forteith anniversary of Springsteens debut album, Greetings from Asbury Park, drawing on interviews and access to new recordings and shows, Heylin paints a bold picture of The Boss.
