After trying for 35 years, Howard Stern Show finally landed an interview with Bruce Springsteen–an interview that lasted 2 hours and 15 minutes and covered a lot. Along the way, Springsteen talked about the songwriting process and the origins of his classic songs, and then performed several acoustic versions, alternating between guitar and piano. Above and below, you can catch thrilling performances from “Thunder Road,” “The Rising,” “Land of Hope and Dreams,” “Born to Run, and “Tougher Than the Rest.”
Those with the Sirius XM app can watch the entire show online. For those who don’t, you can always sign up for a free trial of the service.
Land of Hope and Dreams
Stronger than others
Born to run
