The Boss

Thursday, August 15, 2013

Reporter: Liz Hayes
Producer: Stephen Rice

After more than four decades in the rock and roll business, you'd think Bruce Springsteen might be slowing down.


He's about to turn 64 and "The Boss" is on fire.

As he winds down one world tour he's already preparing for another, which will once again bring him to Australia.

Springsteen has sold more than 120 million records to his disciple-like fans.

He prefers to speak through his music, talking of a spiritual connection with his audience. And when Liz Hayes caught up with him in Ireland, she discovered a man ready to bare his soul.
