It’s easy to forget that Bruce Springsteen is a regular person and not a large bust chiseled on the side of a rock and roll Mount Rushmore after umpteen years on the road and a litany of classics that we all somehow know the choruses to, but during his visit with Jimmy Fallon this week The Boss told stories about life on the road and came across as a generally likeable guy from the neighborhood who just happens to hang out with one of the Sopranos. In part one of the interview, Jimmy and Bruce cycle through some of Bruce’s classic looks, from beatnik Rastafarian to Village People chic, through brief periods as an emo wreck and flamenco dancer to his classic denim, leather and iconic bandana.

Bruce Springsteen tour dates for the Wrecking Ball tour kick off on March 18th in Atlanta.
