Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen is 70 years old today.

Bruce Springsteen was born in New Jersey. After seeing Elvis Presley perform
on The Ed Sullivan Show, he saw himself  growing up like him. His mother saw
his potential and bought him his first guitar for $18 in 1956; that started his
lifetime affair with the guitar. The nickname of ‘Boss’ stuck to him for his task
of collecting the band’s nightly pay and distributing it among the band.
