Bruce Springsteen's Autobiography Worth as Much as $10 Million
Most 60-something men can barely get their own grandchildren to listen to their stories. But Bruce Springsteen isn’t your average old dude. For his life story, which he’s currently turning into an autobiography, he could get up to $10 million, reports the New York Post’s Keith Kelly.
Spingsteen, inarguably one of rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest lyricists, would be put to the test in creating a book about his long, legendary career. It’s a test that The Boss doesn’t want to tackle alone; he’s reportedly looking for a research assistant to help out.
Considering that Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards pulled $8 million from publisher Little, Brown and Company for his upcoming book, it seems feasible that Springsteen could sign a deal that’ll get him double-digit millions.
Although Springsteen hasn’t even begun the writing, the title possibilities seem obvious and endless: Glory Days, Born to Run, Hungry Heart. Here’s hoping The Boss gets creative, though. Girls in Their Summer Clothes: The Surprising Story of Bruce Springsteen, anybody?
