(Classic Rock) Bruce Springsteen has recalled how he was trying to write "the greatest record ever heard" when he penned his breakthrough track Born To Run. The song was the title track to Springsteen's 1975 third album which propelled him to international superstardom. And he makes no bones about the fact that he wanted to hit the big time.

In an interview about his upcoming autobiography Born To Run, Springsteen tells CBS: "I was trying to make the greatest record you ever heard. A record that after you heard it, you didn't have to hear another record."

Springsteen also discusses his relationship with his late father Douglas and how the book is partly an attempt to shine a more accurate light on the dynamic between them.

He says: "My dad is very important in it because I felt I hadn't been completely fair to him in my music. I felt that I left an image of him as a very domineering character, which he could be. He could be frightening. But he was also much, much more. He had a complicated life." Read more here.
