Bruce Springsteen: An Illustrated Biography is loaded with stage and candid photos of this peerless rockstar, and removable memorabilia make this the ultimate collection for any fan of The Boss.

Through story, images, and removable memorabilia, Bruce Springsteen: An Illustrated Biography chronicles the life of The Boss - one of America’s favorite rock stars and one of the biggest-selling artists in history. Springsteen's monolithic music career spans a full half-century, from 1968 to present, and has included dozens of tours, awards, and 20 Grammys. Incredibly, Springsteen's stage presence, star power, and musicianship is as strong as ever - he continues to consistently sell out live musical performances. This book showcases Springsteen's life, both on and off the stage.

Readers will find removable memorabilia (such as Springsteen's draft card that saved him from being shipped off to Vietnam, a concert poster for Dr. Zoom and the Sonic Boom, a photograph of Bruce and Clarence on stage at the Palace Theater, a concert poster for the E Street Band at the Paramount Theater, a Rolling Stone magazine cover, a promotional sticker, and more).
