Bruce Springsteen Releasing Children's Book

08/29/2014
.
(Radio.com) Bruce Springsteen's discography isn't exactly full of G-rated subject matter. The title track for Nebraska follows a young couple on a killing spree, "Atlantic City" delves into the world of organized crime, "Streets of Philadelphia" was inspired by (and seemingly about) living with AIDS and "Born in the U.S.A." deals with the pain of those who lived through (and died in) the Vietnam War.

So, news that Bruce Springsteen is co-authoring a forthcoming children's book is both a welcome change and a major departure from his typical lyrical themes.

Apparently, along with co-author Frank Caruso, the book was inspired by one of his songs that is appropriate for all-ages (kind of, anyway), "Outlaw Pete."

Springsteen described the story in a statement as "essentially the story of a man trying to outlive and outrun his sins." Read more here.
