Springsteen Comes To The Harvard Coop For 'Born To Run'

Download Audio

There are musical legends and there are authors, and today, a man who's both came to Harvard Square in Cambridge.

Bruce Springsteen was at the Harvard Coop Bookstore to promote his new memoir "Born to Run."

Hundreds of people who'd previously bought the book and received a wristband got in line — a really, really, long line. It included fans from as far away as Bristol, Connecticut, New York, and even Springsteen's home state of New Jersey.

Inside the Harvard Coop, fans wound their way up the staircase to the third floor. They were told they'd be allowed to have one photo taken with Springsteen — don't ask for an autograph.

Finally, Springsteen walked in, just as you'd think, in black leather.
