“The E Street Band is glad to be here in Western Australia. But we’re a long way from home, and our hearts and spirits are with the hundreds of thousands of women and men that marched yesterday in every city in America and in Melbourne who rallied against hate and division and in support of tolerance, inclusion, reproductive rights, civil rights, racial justice, LGBTQ rights, the environment, wage equality, gender equality, healthcare, and immigrant rights. We stand with you. We are the new American resistance.”

Bruce Springsteen was at the Tattered Cover on Wednesday, November 30, for a meet-and-greet to celebrate the release of his new book Born to Run. Though he didn’t perform or sign autographs, the Boss did pose for pictures. And yes, he still looks damn good in a pair of jeans.

Bruce Springsteen went out for a ride and may not have gotten back if not for some good Samaritans on Veterans Day (Nov. 11).
Springsteen took advantage of a warm day in New Jersey by taking a spin on his motorcycle, but it broke down on the side of the road by Allaire State Park. At the same time, members of the Freehold American Legion Post 54 Legion Riders — who represented Post 54 at the Veterans Day Ceremony in Holmdel for Veterans Day — had the same idea to enjoy the nice weather and take a ride to Manasquan before returning home to Freehold.
As members Dan Barkalow, Bob Grigs, Donald Clayton and Ryan Baily were making their way through the backstreets — er, backroads — back to Freehold, they noticed a scared and lonely rider on the side of Allaire Road calling out for help. The veterans pulled over and discovered it was Springsteen. Baily had the Boss climb onto his bike, and the men gave him a ride to Mulligan’s, a restaurant in Farmingdale, N.J., where the 67-year old rocker made a call for a pickup.
Greetings from Colt’s Neck, New Jersey! In this exclusive audio from his Rolling Stone interview with Brian Hiatt, Bruce Springsteen goes deep into his childhood, masculinity, his creative process and why does those four hour shows.
