Bruce Springsteen and The Promise Of Rock 'N' Roll Book Cover

Marc Dolan was a guest on the show last year and is back to talk about the new paperback version of Bruce Springsteen and The Promise Of Rock ‘N’ Roll which includes a new chapter.

The New York Times recently called Dolan’s book a “superbly detailed portrait”, and it stands out from others by looking at Springsteen through his songs and music.  

In this interview, we talk about the new chapter which includes the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and the 12-12-12 concert, what future Bruce tours might look like and we take a look at the Norwegian version of the book…just because.
