    Summary:

    The legend of Bruce Springsteen may well outlast rock 'n' roll itself. And for all the muscle and magic of his life-shaking concerts with the E Street Band, his legendary status comes down to the songs. He is an acknowledged master of music and lyrics, with decades of hits, from "Blinded by the Light" and "Born to Run" to "Hungry Heart," "Dancing in the Dark," and "The Rising."In Bruce Springsteen: The Stories Behind the Songs, longtime Rolling Stone writer Brian Hiatt digs into the writing and recording of these songs and all the others on Springsteen's studio albums, from 1973's Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. to 2014's High Hopes (plus all the released outtakes), and offers a unique look at the legendary rocker's methods, along with historical context and scores of colorful anecdotes. Hiatt has interviewed Springsteen five times in the past and has conducted numerous new interviews with his collaborators, from longtime producers to the E Street Band, to create an authoritative and lush journey through Springsteen's entire songbook and career.
