E Street Shuffle free pdf An intimate look at one of rock's brightest stars and his legendary backing band
Before he was the swaggering, stadium-packing megastar, Bruce Springsteen was a brooding introvert, desperate to strike a balance between his nuanced songwriting and the heft of his backing band. Clinton Heylin's revelatory biography, "E Street Shuffle," chronicles the evolution and influence of Springsteen's E Street Band as they rose from blue-collar New Jersey to the heights of rock stardom. The band's players--most notably saxophonist Clarence "Big Man" Clemons, guitarist "Little" Stevie Van Zandt, and drummer Max Weinberg--became Springsteen's comrades in concert, helping him find the elusive sound and sonic punch that highlighted The Boss's most creative period, including "Darkness on the Edge of Town," "Born to Run," and "Born in the USA." Fans will also learn another side of Springsteen, one punctuated with his clashes with studio executives seeking a commercially viable, radio-friendly album, and his temporary disbanding of the E Street Band to pursue projects like the eerie acoustic of "Nebraska." Coinciding with the forteith anniversary of Springsteen's debut album, "Greetings from Asbury Park," drawing on interviews and access to new recordings and shows, Heylin paints a bold picture of The Boss.
