Being a life-long Springsteen fan myself, I recognized there was a pent-up desire for fans to come together and share. Something magical happens at a Springsteen concert. Each concert is like a huge family reunion, even though in all reality you actually know very few of the people there. Complete strangers connect with an immediacy that is tangible.
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 9, 2007
The long awaited and anticipated new Bruce Springsteen book 'For You', a collection of stories, tales and fan experiences from across the world, is now available.
Over two years in preparation, and containing hundreds of stories and anecdotes written by his legendary fans, as well as over 400 photographs, most of them never previously published. This is one not-to-be-missed book for the dedicated Springsteen fan.
Editor Lawrence Kirsch said: "Being a life-long Springsteen fan myself, I recognized there was a pent-up desire for fans to come together and share. Something magical happens at a Springsteen concert. Each concert is like a huge family reunion, even though in all reality you actually know very few of the people there. Complete strangers connect with an immediacy that is tangible."
"So, in 2005 I came up with the idea for this book and set up a web site called: Foryoubruce.com to confirm if my theory was correct. I asked fans to write in with their experiences, and I was simply amazed by the response. Over 1,500 fans from across the globe submitted stories and anecdotes to the website. It was difficult to make the final selection."
"Unfortunately, there was no way to include them all. All I can offer is that the tales that are there are representative of so many other stories we received. Fans will be able to identify and relate through the memories of others. I promise you there is something for everyone in this book."
Although Kirsch requested the stories be submitted in English, he did in fact receive a number of stories in a wide variety of the world's languages. So, to underscore the fact the music made by Bruce Springsteen and the legendary E Street Band, the Sessions Band - as well as the other musicians and performers with whom he has played, does indeed cross the language barrier, touching fans across the globe, Kirsch has scattered throughout the book some stories written in languages other than English. His personal recognition For You -the fanatical Springsteen fan, no matter what language you actually speak.
"I wanted everyone to feel included," said Kirsch, "so these non-English language stories serve as reminders that the Boss has a worldwide fan base and his music and the Bruce Springsteen concert experience transcend the boundaries of one specific language."
