Bruce Springsteen turns sixty

Rock legend Bruce Springsteen - also known as The Boss to his legion of loyal fans - has turned 60. He celebrated his birthday yesterday, 23rd September.

The prolific singer-songwriter has been a permanent figure on the music *landscape since the early Seventies. His first album, Born to Run, *released in August 1975, is considered by fans to be one of his greatest *achievements. But the singer is probably more widely recognised for his commercially and critically acclaimed 1984 hit album Born in the USA.

Here you are some curious facts about his life:

  • Full name: Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen.

  • Springsteen has so far won a total of 18 Grammy Awards.

  • He dreamed of becoming a baseball star as a child.

  • He nearly gave up on his other dream of becoming a guitar player - believing his hands were too small to play the instrument.

  • He received his first guitar at the age of five as a gift from his mother.

  • He sold more than 65 million albums in America alone, and 120 million worldwide.
