Channel 4 is to air an exclusive Bruce Springsteen biography documentary.
“The first time I played for an audience I was about 6 or 7 and I went in to the garden and some of the neighbourhood kids were there, so I strapped on my guitar and strummed it and tried to sing a few Elvis songs. I just made a horrible noise. I had no ability to play at all. But I did enjoy bangin’ the hell out of it. And that’s when I smelled blood for the first time!” – Bruce Springsteen
The broadcaster has been granted access to the singer-songwriter for a special programme showing the man behind the music. Bruce will explore the seminal moments that fuelled his relentless drive to become a musician and which have provided the influence for some of the most critically acclaimed and loved songs of the last 50 years.
Bruce will also talk about his first foray into prose writing with his autobiography, ‘Born to Run’; a book which has been critically acclaimed around the world.
“The revealing one-off film will give audiences a unique insight into the life of one of the most admired and respected musicians in the world. Bruce will explore and explain his greatest influences, detailing the people and places that have inspired him and what motivates him to continue to tour and write.” – Channel 4
The 90 minutes in length documentary is being produced by Lonesome Pine Productions in collaboration with Thom Zimny, Bruce’s long term videographer, and will air later this year.
