I found this Bruce documentary online this week. I had never seen it before so I was pretty excited. Here is how it was described…..
Bruce Springsteen documentary from 2011 – How different the career and music of Bruce Springsteen could have turned out had it not been for his legally enforced recording hiatus, witnessed between the release of his celebrated ‘Born To Run’ album and the delayed but extraordinary follow-up, ‘Darkness On The Edge Of Town’ – almost three years later. Despite the undeniable strength of his ’75 opus, during this break from the studio, many wondered if ‘the future of rock n’ roll’ was a one trick pony who had somehow managed to capture the imagination of the media for a brief moment, but in reality was just yet another ‘new Bob Dylan’ who got lucky. This film examines the period between the start of the lull and the threat of the storm, when Bruce Springsteen recorded and released, arguably, the finest music he was ever going to make. Featuring rare and classic performance footage, archive interviews with the Boss himself, contributions from those who know the man best and who were around him during the 1975-1985 period, plus seldom seen photographs, news reports, newly discovered film material and some of the finest music ever made!
I think the Bruce fans will love it for sure (I’m talking to you Gerard 🙂 ). Everyone else let me know what you think.
