Bruce Springsteen not afraid of age
Bruce Springsteen puts his longevity down to not being "afraid of getting old".
The 'Born To Run' singer puts the success of his nearly 40 year career with the E Street band down to the fact that he planned to have longevity in his music and embraced getting older.
He said: "That's why I think the band continues to improve. You can't be afraid of getting old. Old is good, if you're gathering in life. Our band is good at understanding that equation.
"I was never a visionary like Dylan, I wasn't a revolutionary, but I had the idea of a long arc: where you could take the job that I did and create this long emotional arc that found its own kind of richness. Thirty five years staying connected to that idea."
Bruce, 61, also has a rigorous attitude to quality control, and his quest for perfection has previously led him to scrap whole albums worth of songs during sessions, in his pursuit of the perfect set for an album.
Speaking of sessions for the singer's 1978 album 'Darkness On The Edge Of Town', E Street Band drummer Max Weinberg said: "The material he leaves off - there are whole other albums. It was a learning process for all of us. "Both frustrating and funny at the same time. We were trying to make a great record.
"Bruce would rehearse us for several days on a song and then throw the song out. He had a plan - sometimes it wasn't as obvious to the rest of us."Posted on 24 Sep 2010 16:30 to category : Music News
