High expectations for Bruce Springsteen autobiography

4th November 2009

A battle looks set to break out over the book rights for one of the music world's most eagerly-anticipated autobiographies.

The New York Post said that rock legend Bruce Springsteen is currently penning his life story, leading to expectations of a multi-million dollar book deal in the near future.

An industry insider explained: 'It could be the biggest rock music autobiography of all time. He could get USD 9 million [GBP 5.4 million] to USD 10 million for the world rights.'

Biographies have already been written about Springsteen, such as Greetings from E Street by Robert Santelli and several by unofficial historian David Marsh, who is married to the musician's co-manager.

However, the mole told the newspaper: 'Springsteen is a better writer than Marsh.'

The 60-year-old's autobiography is likely to be based on the extensive journals that he has maintained over his career.

This comes ahead of the release of an autobiography from former rock groupie Chris O'Dell that will detail the hedonistic lifestyles of iconic bands such as The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.

Miss O'Dell will include stories of her adventures and encounters with stars such as George Harrison, Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan.
