Springsteen began his career in 1972 when he signed a deal with Columbia Records and released Greetings from Asbury Park, NJ. At that time he also formed the E-Street Band.
He is probably best known for 1984's Born in the USA, which is one of the best-selling albums of all time. It was at that time when Rolling Stone called Springsteen "Voice of the Decade."
Currently, Springsteen and the E-Street Band are deciding on their future. In June, saxophonist Clarence Clemons passed away due to complications from a stroke.
Happy birthday to "The Boss," who turns 62 today.
