When Bruce Springsteen was experiencing a career high in the early 1980's, it turns out that the Boss was also experiencing a personal low, as Springsteen's longtime friend and biographer, Dave Marsh revealed to the New Yorker that he battled bouts of severe depression.
"He was feeling suicidal," Marsh said. "The depression wasn't shocking, per se. He was on a rocket ride, from nothing to something, and now you are getting your ass kissed day and night. You might start to have some inner conflicts about your real self-worth."
Marsh also revealed that Springsteen has been regularly seeing a therapist since 1982. He credits that therapy with helping him to be able to deal with these issues stemming from his complex relationship with his father.
The impressive 15,000 word piece, written by Dave Remnick, can be found in the latest issue of the New Yorker.
