Springsteen Buch zum Darkness-Album und der 78er-Tour, “The Light in Darkness”

…falls es einige hier immer noch nicht haben: Lawrence Kirsch bietet sein Buch zum Darkness-Album und der 78er-Tour, “The Light in Darkness”, im August wieder portofrei an! Es gibt mittlerweile nur noch weniger als 100 Restexemplare, wenn die weg sind, sind sie weg. Das Buch hat über 200 Seiten und Fotos, alle Details findet ihr unter The Light in Darknesss  Großartige Fotos, wie ihr auf seiner Seite sehen könnt, und “Augenzeugenberichte” von damals. Sein erstes Buch “For You” ist leider seit langem vergriffen – demnächst ist aber wieder eine Verlosung geplant …

BlindedByTheLight.com — an Online “Museum” of Rare Bruce Springsteen Artifacts

BlindedByTheLight.com — an Online “Museum” of Rare Bruce Springsteen Artifacts

Technology to Offer a First-of-Its-Kind Viewing Experience for the Ultimate Springsteen Fan

BlindedByTheLight.com, an online museum that features the largest Bruce Springsteen exhibit ever seen, has just launched in commemoration of the 30th anniversary release-date of “Born In The USA”– the most successful recording of Bruce’s career. With over 310 rare artifacts collected from all over the world, the museum celebrates the life and music of one of rock music’s greatest legends. Spanning more than half-century, these items have been verified by multiple credible sources and experts — including those who have known and/or worked with Bruce first-hand. BlindedByTheLight.com ensures that each item is 100% authentic: proof-positive of this is the fact that several of the items in the collection have even been loaned to the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.

Viewers are able to zoom in at close range to any item, a feature that is unique to this site. A “ticket” to attend the museum costing $9.99, will allow viewers to leisurely tour its vast collection for an entire month and in some cases get closer to items than they would ever be able to in person. Other choice items include:

  • Bruce’s 1957 Chevy Bel Air in which he wrote the album “Born To Run.”
  • An early address book with phone numbers of band-mates along with lyrics to “Does This Bus Stop at 82nd St?”
  • A rare photo from 1972 of Bruce and his father dressed up as “Pancho Villa” and “Cisco” taken in Tijuana, Mexico
  • Bruce’s first driver’s license from California
  • His 8th–grade report card from St. Rose of Lima Catholic School (with a surprisingly low mark in music!).

The “All-Access” monthly subscription will also allow fans to join customized chat rooms and place classified ads on a “Bruce-Exchange”. Each month at least 30-50 new items will be added to the museum. Anyone with an all access subscription will automatically be entered into a drawing to win an artifact whose value is at least $10,000. ULTIMATELY, BRUCE’S 1957 CHEVY BEL AIR CONVERTIBLE WILL BE OFFERED AS A CONTEST PRIZE.

BlindedByTheLight.com was founded by Michael Crane, who has been an ardent fan of Bruce’s since he was seven years old. Crane, who is a recognized Bruce Springsteen historian (contributing to exhibits in both The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio and the Rock Annex in New York City), created the site as a “one-stop shop” for all that is best about Bruce. Created by a fan for fans, it grants them the unique opportunity of having a totally intimate viewing experience with the quintessential rock legend of our time from the convenience of a computer, tablet or Smartphone.

“Through the years, I’ve read almost every book written about Springsteen. Some are great and many are not. Over time, I’ve even become cynical when I hear about new books. In the last few years, there have been a plethora of coffee table book releases in the Springsteen world. Each one in itself is a gorgeous work of art that will glisten on your polished coffee table. However, chances are you are still missing the ultimate Bruce Springsteen keepsake: For You. When I heard about this book a year ago, I dismissed it thinking I didn’t really need yet another glorified coffee table book. I was wrong, dead wrong. For You takes the reader on a magical, mystical and poignant journey through forty years of Bruce Springsteen’s life. It’s a time machine to the past where tickets were once $7, the E Street Band was a boy’s only club, Steve Van Zandt looked like a member of Jimmy Buffet’s band and most of the members of the E Street Band could have begun their own television show – ‘Stashin.’ I wasn’t impressed with the book, I was bowled over.

“In reading For You, at first it’s hard to believe that one performer could possibly have touched this many people this deeply – lifted them from depression, kept them from suicide, helped them through divorce or the death of a parent, or worse, a child. But story after story reveals just how much Springsteen’s music and his almost superhuman presence on the concert stage have penetrated people’s lives and, in as much as it is possible for music to do so, made them whole.

In fact, there’s a running theme of these reminiscences, one that is sure to warm any Bruce fan’s heart: that you are not crazy. Not crazy for seeing dozens or even hundreds of concerts; not crazy for feeling that Springsteen’s songs and lyrics have actually helped carry you through some of life’s toughest moments; not crazy to think that this man whom you’ve never met has and continues to fill some kind of void in your life.”
