The Boss’ Many Axes

Bruce Springsteen was featured on CBS’ wonderful Sunday Morning show today. The dapper guitarist said he’s definitely going to be playing when he’s 75, as he and the correspondent stood in front of the stage. There were 25 guitars up there, waiting to be played by the boss. “Why do you have so many guitars?” he was asked. Springsteen replied that each one was tuned for a special song. He carefully tunes these axes so that they’re ready for one of his typical long shows.

Springsteen looks remarkably like he did when he first debuted with Born to Run back in 1973. His hair is black, his shape thin, not chunky, and he looks about 35.
