Bruce Springsteen, known as The Boss, had a difficult start on his road to success. It wasn’t until 1972, when he signed a record deal with Columbia Records and released his debut album, Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J., in January, 1973, that he thought he had arrived. Bruce and his New Jersey-based colleagues, who would later be called “The E Street Band”, were on their way to becoming legends, only they didn’t really know that yet.
Joan Jett rose to fame as a member of the 1970s all-girl rock band The Runaways, remembered in the 2010 movie with Dakota Fanning. Jett’s cover of I Love Rock and Roll was a number one hit in 1982 and Crimson and Clover was another memorable hit for her. Jett has also appeared as Columbia in the Broadway production of “The Rocky Horror Show”.
