Bruce Springsteen Net Worth, Wiki & Biography in 2017

Bruce Springsteen was born on 23 September 1949, in Long Branch, New Jersey USA of Dutch and Irish (father) and Italian (mother) descent. Bruce is often refered to by his nickname of “The Boss”, and is a  singer, musician, songwriter and a film producer, known for his lyrical poeticism and heartland rock music. In particular, he is a very popular stage performer around the world with his E Street Band, and has been involved in the music industry since the mid-60s.

So just how rich is Bruce Springsteen? Currently, Bruce’s net worth is estimated to be an impressive $345 million, and has accumulated most of his wealth through his vast earnings from the sales of albums and from his concert tours during a very successful music career.

Bruce Springsteen Net Worth $345 Million

Bruce Springsteen took up music at the early age of seven. Heavily influenced by Elvis Presley’s and The Beatles’ performances on The Ed Sullivan Show, Springsteen began playing for audiences at the local New Jersey Route 34 trailer park and Elks Lodge. In 1972, Bruce was discovered by John Hammond and signed a record deal with Columbia Records, a company that had previously signed Bob Dylan. In 1973, Springsteen released two albums under their label entitled “Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J”, and “The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle” but it wasn’t until his third album called “Born to Run” (1975) that he received public recognition, and which began his remarkable commercial success. The album peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200, sold six million copies in the US by 2000, and was ranked at #18 on Rolling Stone’s list of 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Throughout his lengthy career, Bruce Springsteen has released a total of 18 albums, the most recent being “High Hopes” (2014), which is the 11th of his albums to reach #1 in the United States. Springsteen’s other very successful album, “Born in the U.S.A” (1984), has been certified platinum 15 times by Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The tour supporting the album grossed $80-90 million overall, and consisted of 156 shows in the United States, Canada, and Europe. A remarkably successful musician with an approximate $60 million annual income, Bruce Springsteen has won 20 Grammy Awards, two Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song, and an Academy Award for Best Original Song.

Bruce Springsteen is still as popular today as at any time during his career. He is appreciated for his quality stage performances, and actually for being a good friend to many musical contemporaries, many of whom he collaborates with, Bruce was inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 1999, and in 2013, was honored as MusiCares Person of the Year, and inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

In his personal life, Bruce Springsteen was married to Julianne Phillips(1985-89) and has been married to Patti Scialfa since 1991; they have three children.  Currently they live in Colts Neck, New Jersey, but Springsteen also owns several other homes, including a multi-million dollar mansion in Rumson, New Jersey, and a home in Wellington, Florida. In addition, he previously owned an expensive villa in West Palm Beach, in Florida. Springsteen is an admirer of prestigious cars, and has a set of fancy vehicles, such as Range Rover Sport and a 1957 Chevy Bel Air Convertible – the value of which is reputed to be an astounding $400.000 – as well as a private jet. Bruce Springsteen actively participates in and campaigns for a variety of charities, some of which include Amnesty International, Rainforest Foundation Fund, WhyHunger, and Bob Woodruff Foundation. Bruce has also been an active supporter of President Barack Obama.

Looks like we don't have Bruce Springsteen salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian award, by President Barack Obama, in a live televised ceremony held in the East Room of the White House, on November 22, 2016, along with twenty other recipients, the the largest, and final Medal of Freedom ceremony of Obama's presidency. At this ceremony, the twenty-one recipients, in alphabetical order, included: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Elouise Cobell (posthumous award given to her son), Ellen DeGeneres, Robert De Niro, Richard Garwin, Bill Gates, Melinda Gates, Frank Gehry, Margaret Hamilton (as Margaret H. Hamilton), Tom Hanks, Rear Admiral Grace Hopper (posthumous award given to her niece), Michael Jordan, Maya Lin, Lorne Michaels, Newton Minow, Eduardo Padron (as Eduardo Padrón), Robert Redford, Diana Ross, Vin Scully, Bruce Springsteen, and Cicely Tyson.
2In common with other rock stars in the 1980s such as U2, Sting and Peter Gabriel, Springsteen was a prominent supporter of the human rights organization Amnesty International.
3Has suffered from clinical depression since the mid 1980s, a condition that almost crushed him by his early sixties.
4His song "It's Hard to Be a Saint in the City" was covered by David Bowie during his "Station to Station" sessions and has appeared on some Bowie compilation albums. In 1985, while he was in recording sessions for his single "Absolute Beginners", Bowie was also recorded doing an impression of Springsteen's singing voice (this surfaced following Bowie's death in 2016).
5Of the twelve tracks on "Born in the U.S.A.", seven of them, when released as singles, reached the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100.
6Springsteen's album "Nebraska" (1982) was famously recorded in his home studio on a Tascam 4-track tape recorder using a pair of Shure SM57 mics.
7Is a huge fan of The Daily Show (1996) and has even anonymously been in the audience during tapings of the show as well as being a guest himself.
8While he was composing the song "Fire" in the mid 1970s, in his mind he was imagining it being sung by Elvis Presley. Elvis died a few years later, having never heard the song. It became a huge hit for The Pointer Sisters in 1979.
9One of the five winners of the 2009 Kennedy Center Honors. Other 2009 honorees were Robert De Niro, Dave Brubeck, Mel Brooks and Grace Bumbry.
10His late cousin, Lenny Sullivan, was the assistant road manager for his band for the last 10 years [October 27, 2009].
11His music was a partial influence on the new direction The Killers chose to take when writing and producing songs for their sophomore album "Sam's Town".
12Good friends with former WWE / AWA superstar Jim Brunzell, Tom Hanks and Edward Norton.
13He inspired and is referred to in the Prefab Sprout song "Cars and Girls" (from their 1988 album "From Langley Park to Memphis").
141999: Inducted into the American Songwriters Hall of Fame.
15Is a huge fan of Elvis Presley.
16The title for the film Streets of Fire (1984) came from the song written and recorded by Springsteen on his album "Darkness on the Edge of Town". Original plans were for the song to be featured on the film's soundtrack, but when Springsteen found out it would be rerecorded by other vocalists, he withdrew permission for the song to be used.
17Ranked #59 on VH1's 100 Sexiest Artists.
18Ranked #27 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Rock & Roll.
19Inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame in 2007 for his services to music and entertainment (inaugural election). Official induction ceremonies held in May 2008.
201986: Winner of the British Phonographic Industry Award for International Solo Artist following the success of his multi-million selling album "Born in the USA".
21Sean Penn wrote and directed his first movie, The Indian Runner (1991), loosely based on Springsteen's song, "Highway Patrolman", from his "Nebraska" album from 1982, which was practically a demo tape made in Springsteen's house.
22Born on the same day as the late rhythm and blues singer Ray Charles and actor Jason Alexander.
23Was occasionally confused with Bob Seger in the 1970s and 1980s. They have similar raspy singing voices, utilize saxophone players in their music, and often write songs about the working-class common man.
24His concerts are known as marathons for lasting multiple hours.
25One of his most famous songs, "Thunder Road", was inspired by the Robert Mitchum movie of the same name, Thunder Road (1958). Cappy Van Dien has the same birthday as Springsteen and is named after his great-grandfather Robert Mitchum and his father Casper Van Dien - Casper Robert Mitchum Van Dien.
26He was voted the 23rd Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Artist of all time by Rolling Stone.
272004: Radio station 88.5 WXPN performed the 885 greatest songs ever, though they mostly just did rock (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wasn't on the list) and Springsteen won first place with "Thunder Road", "Born to Run" following at #6 and then many other songs scattered throughout.
28Father was of Dutch and Irish extraction; mother is of Italian extraction.
292004: He participated in the Vote for Change concert tour organized to encourage the defeat of George W. Bush in the U.S. presidential election, an effort that ultimately fell short as Bush was re-elected on November 2, 2004.
30His Oscar-winning song "Streets of Philadelphia" from Philadelphia (1993) was ranked #68 on The American Film Institute's list of "The 100 Years of The Greatest Songs".
31Originally wrote his classic single "Hungry Heart" for Ramones, but recorded himself at the insistence of his manager.
32He refused to play "The Angry Game" with Kristian Luuk when he appeared on Sen kväll med Luuk (1996), a Swedish talk-show. The game is a staring contest, during which the contestants are not allowed to laugh.
33For all his musical success, he has never recorded a #1 hit in the United States. "Hungry Heart" (believed to be a #1 by some) only hit #5. The closest he came was #2, with "Dancing in the Dark". However, he did write "Blinded by the Light", which hit #1 when recorded by Manfred Mann's Earth Band. The closest he came to a UK #1 was "Streets of Philadelphia", which peaked at #2 in 1994.
34His song "The Ghost of Tom Joad" was inspired by the John Ford film The Grapes of Wrath (1940).
35Frequently works with director John Sayles, a fellow Jerseyite who shares a similar social conscience.
36Father, Douglas "Dutch" Springsteen, died in 1998. Mother's name is Adele. Has two sisters, Virginia and Pamela Springsteen.
37Paul Schrader asked Springsteen to write a title song for a movie he had written called "Born in the USA". After Springsteen wrote it, he liked the song so much, he used it for his multi-platinum album of the same name instead. As a replacement, Springsteen wrote another song and that song title became the film's new title, Light of Day (1987). That is why Springsteen thanks Schrader in the liner notes of the album.
38Many of his earlier songs make reference to the New Jersey shore, where he spent his youth.
39Considered becoming a baseball player prior to devoting himself to music.
4010/27/75: Has appeared on the covers of both Time and Newsweek magazines simultaneously. Previously this only happened to world leaders.
411997: Awarded the Polar Music Prize, the Royal Swedish Academy of Music Award.
421999: Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, where Bono of U2 gave the induction speech. When U2 was inducted in 2005, Springsteen gave their induction speech, returning the favor.
43Says his favorite film as a kid was The Searchers (1956).
44Children, with Patti Scialfa: Evan Springsteen, Jesse Springsteen and Sam Springsteen.

#Quote
1[on Donald Trump] The republic is under siege by a moron, basically. Without overstating it, it's a tragedy for our democracy. The ideas he's moving to the mainstream are all very dangerous ideas - white nationalism and the alt-right movement. We have certain problems in the United States - tremendous inequality of wealth distribution. That makes for ripe ground for demagoguery. He has a very simple answer to all these very, very complex problems.
2[on cancellation of a performance in North Carolina over transgender bathroom issues] Some things are more important than a rock show.
3[introducing Pete Seeger on his 90th birthday party at Madison Square Gardens] He's gonna look a lot like your granddad that wears flannel shirts and funny hats. He's gonna look like your granddad if your granddad can kick your ass. At 90, he remains a stealth dagger through the heart of our country's illusions about itself.
4[at the 2012 Grammy Awards] America, are you alive out there?
5In the third grade a nun stuffed me in a garbage can under her desk because she said that's where I belonged. I also had the distinction of being the only altar boy knocked down by a priest during mass.
6Adult life is dealing with an enormous amount of questions that don't have answers. So I let the mystery settle into my music. I don't deny anything, I don't advocate anything, I just live with it.
7You know the old saying: Trust the art, not the artist. I think that's true. I think somebody can do real good work and be a fool in a variety of ways.
8When you get the music and the lyrics right, your voice disappears into the voices of those you've chosen to write about... But all the telling detail in the world doesn't matter if the song lacks an emotional center.
9When I was growing up, there were two things that were unpopular in my house. One was me, and the other was my guitar.
10[on Bob Dylan] Bob freed your mind the way Elvis freed your body. He showed us that just because music was innately physical did not mean that it was anti-intellectual. He had the vision and the talent to make a pop record that contained the whole world.
11[About Elvis Presley] There have been a lot of tough guys. There have been pretenders. And there have been contenders. But there is only one King.
12[About Elvis Presley] He was as big as the whole country itself, as big as the whole dream. He just embodied the essence of it and he was in mortal combat with the thing. Nothing will ever take the place of that guy.
13[During his Oscar acceptance speech]: Thanks for inviting me to your party.
14When it comes to luck, you make your own.
15Until I realized that rock music was my connection to the rest of the human race, I felt like I was dying, for some reason, and I didn't know why.
