3.0 out of 5 stars Still waiting for a definitive potrait of the Boss......this is not it! Its ok but not great!, 25 May 2014
This review is from: E Street Shuffle: The Glory Days of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band (Paperback)
I am a Springsteen fan. I have read the various books by Dave Marsh which is entertaining but perhaps lack any real critical edge. This book certainly has a critical edge but it fails for me because it does not reveal much, if anyhting new about Springsteen himself or his life. Indeed, i don't think it is very revealing at all. For me if you read a biography, you should feel you know the subject better than you did at the start of the book. I didn't after reading this book. It is more a catalogue of the songs Springsteen performed when or recorded when or didn't as often the case. I have heard Heflin called the greatest Rock biographer....for me, he does not live up to it in this book. It is a fair read, sometimes a little turgid, tedious and sometimes it takes too long to get where it is going or just does not arrive. It's ok but I am still waiting for the definitive biography of the Boss. This is not it. However, it does provide some interesting material regarding the songs Springsteen wrote/recorded/performed or didn't. Overall if a keen Springsteen fan, it is worth reading.
