To mark Springsteen's 60th birthday on September 23rd, Johnnie Walker digs into the BBC archives to hear the very best from thirty years of interviews with the Boss: from his first interview with Bob Harris in 1979, through to talking about turning 60 with Steve Lamacq. From the adolescent escapism of Born to Run, to the bleak folk tales of Nebraska and his elegies for those lost on 9/11 with The Rising, Bruce Springsteen is one of the greatest story-tellers rock and roll has ever produced. But he's not just a great storyteller on disc. In interview he can be as engaging, considered and surprising as he is on his records. The interviews are a fascinating snapshot of Bruce's evolving musical career, his personal life, his interest in politics and the changing face of America.

Johnnie Walker selects the best moments from 30 years of interviews with Bruce Springsteen
