Legendary singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen was born on September 23, 1949 in Long Branch, NJ.

The struggles of working class life in the suburbs figure prominently in Springsteen’s work. He spent most of his early years playing the guitar, and spent time in various local bands before striking out on his own, the beginning of a career that has made him one of the greatest living American musicians. Springsteen married Patti Scialfa in 1991, and the couple has three children who they raised in New Jersey.
