Bruce Springsteen’s growth as a songwriter reached a sublime height with one of the biggest selling albums of the ’80s, Born in the U.S.A. Songs like “My Hometown,” the last track of the album, have such a conversational strength in the lyrics, that they can easily be placed alongside the works of Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, and Van Morrison, as sources of inspired storytelling within the context of rock music. Springsteen’s high energy, three hour long concerts were already legendary by the time Born in the U.S.A. was released (in 1984); so much so, that, ten years earlier, Rolling Stone magazine editor Jon Landau was moved to remark, “I saw rock & roll’s future and its name is Bruce Springsteen.” Max Weinberg is the drummer.
