Bruce Springsteen on creative passion


From the Toronto International Film Festival series Mavericks, a piece of an interview with Bruce moderated by the actor Edward Norton on the occasion of the world premiere of The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town.

The TIFF website describes the Mavericks series as “unforgettable dialogues with some of the most compelling figures working in cinema today. Learn about their latest projects and the impact of their life’s work in an intimate setting.”

    He is the best living example of creative passion I know.

      Hi Marile,

      What I think distinguishes him is that the passion has been life long (vs artists who show it for a few albums and then seem to get stuck). I never feel like Springsteen is resting on his past work or just rehashing what he’s already done for the sake of sales. Sure he has a style, but he’s always pushing, looking for a new way to talk to us. It doesn’t always work – but that’s what makes him interesting as an artist. Thanks for your thoughts, Marile.

    Hi Gale! Nice to hear from you. I can’t wait to see the documentary. In the meantime, have you seen/heard this?
