He was gone for almost two decades, at least as a solo performer. Steven Van Zandt alias Little Steven has been an integral part of the Bruce Springsteen Camp since "Born To Run" (1975). While Saxer Clarence Clemons was the boss's right hand all his life, Steven was his left. But in the last twenty years he was more active as an actor ("Die Sopranos", "Lilyhammer") than as an album artist besides his engagement in the E Street Band. What made the guitarist decide to continue the legendary "Sound of Asbury Park" with his new record "Soulfire"?
eclipsed: "I'm Coming Back" is the name of a song on "Soulfire" - the perfect motto. But why do you only come back as a solo artist after almost two decades?
Eighteen studio albums, numerous live recordings, compilations and box sets - 67-year-old US superstar Bruce Springsteen looks back on an extensive oeuvre and an eventful career. How does such a man tick, who grew up in New Jersey in simple circumstances? In "Born To Run" (review on the book page of this issue) Springsteen gives sincere and profound insights. The press conference scheduled by Heyne Verlag must not be communicated in advance, and the venue, a hotel near the exhibition grounds, is also secret and will not be announced until shortly before the meeting on the afternoon of 20 October. After a short reception with snacks and drinks, the exact procedure is explained in the hall. The press conference, moderated by radio journalist Thomas Steinberg (WDR), will last less than an hour. Questions from the assembled media crowd are only allowed at the very end.
