Audible Editor Reviews

Bruce Springsteen was already in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, but he hadn't yet reunited with the E Street Band when he sat down for an hour of career-spanning conversation with Charlie Rose. They discuss Springsteen's prolific songwriting, the stress of live performance, his relationship with his parents, his very first audition at Columbia Records, the influence of Bob Dylan, and much more.

If you've ever watched Charlie Rose on television, you know that he sits across from his subjects at a plain table against a black backdrop. The spareness of that setting insures that nothing gets in the way of the questions and the answers. You can hear Charlie and The Boss looking each other in the eye - an interviewer who's clearly a fan, and a subject who's obviously engaged by the questions.

And, oh, by the way - the hour ends with an acoustic performance of Born in the U.S.A. that's not to be missed, or misunderstood.
