He also looks pretty young for someone his age.
Springsteen was inspired to sing from seeing Elvis Presley perform on The Ed Sullivan Show. His career started in the late 1960's performing in a group called Earth in clubs in his home state of New Jersey. Springsteen collected the money and distributed it among the group and in this way earned his nickname "The Boss". He formed the "E Street Band" and the legendary Columbia Records sent John Hammond to audition Springsteen. Springsteen and the E Street Band produced their debut folk rock album Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J., in 1973. He would have many more hit albums, including Born to Run, Born in the USA, and most recently Working on a Dream.
