My Favorite Album with Jeremy Dylan

Oct 22, 2019

MFA Book Month continues as Rolling Stone's Brian Hiatt joins me to talk about his exhaustive book chronicling the stories behind every single song Bruce Springsteen wrote and recorded. We delve into both the stories behind the songs and the stories behind the book, how Brian made sure it had something new both for die hard fans of the Boss and those who only knew the hits - from conflicting stories behind some tracks, the underappreciated gems in Bruce's catalogue, Springsteen's attempt to not sound like "Bruce Springsteen" anymore, how his depression bled into his songwriting, the battle between live and studio versions of some songs and, because I can't help myself, Taylor Swift.
