Bruce Springsteen is one of the most important and controversial rock stars of our times: this is the story of the man - a complex, poetic loner whose albums went on to sell 18 million copies - and the band that gave his inner vision a punch and a swagger. Clinton Heylin has written the most factually accurate, informative book on Springsteen to date. As in Heylin's definitive Bob Dylan title Revolution in the Air, E Street Shuffle will focus on Bruce Springsteen and his work: the songs he's written, the way they were recorded, how they sounded live. Heylin also has unparalleled access to the people around Springsteen: current and former members of the E Street Band; CBS A&R personnel; Springsteen's 'New Dylan' contemporaries, as well as fellow Asbury Park musicians and scenesters, and rock critics. This is the essential book for any fan of the Boss. Praise for Clinton Heylin: "Arguably the world's greatest rock biographer." (The Irish Independent). "The only Dylanologist worth reading." (The New York Times).
An impressive feat of rock scholarship. Sunday Telegraph Heylin traces Springssteen's development from the bars of the Jersey Shore to the stadiums of the world in compelling fashion. Catholic Herald
