Bruce Springsteen Book For You

Did you miss out on owning one of the best-loved Bruce Springsteen books of the last ten years?
For You Original Stories and Photographs by Bruce Springsteen's Legendary Fans is a limited edition book published in 2007. It has been sold out since 2009. It can be occasionally found on eBay and Amazon on auction for $300+. We are thinking of producing an exact reprint of the original book, including all the amazing stories and rarely seen photos. Two hundred and eight pages jam packed with memories and photos from fans in over 30 countries. We are reaching out to the Bruce Springsteen fan community to see if there is a large enough interest to produce a reprint of the book to allow those fans who missed it the first time another chance. Please help share the news on Facebook and Twitter with other Bruce fans to see if we can make this happen.

I still feel sad about what happened to my copy. I say 'my' … someone, I don't know who, sent it to me and I enjoyed reading the stories - some by people I know/knew well.

There was to be a fund-raising get-together and Lakers were asked if they had anything special that could be auctioned - obviously to the highest bidder who would hopefully be a Bruce fan.  I decided that whoever gave me the book wouldn't mind it going into the auction, especially because of the cause … but, on the day, it was decided to just put it, and other special things, into an ordinary raffle. I was not amused but didn't like to cause a stir at such an event - goodness knows who it went to. I can only hope it was well-received and looked after. Probably cost them just a quid.

Pfffft … it still bugs me to this day. 

That's as close to holding a grudge that I get.  :D

Eileen - it was me who gave you the book and of course I didn't mind you donating it for a good cause. In any event, it was yours from the moment I posted it. Good to see you after the Whitley Bay gig and again recently at Shepherd's Bush for SSJ. Might see you at LSDOS in Newcastle. I assume you're going.

 Did you ever tell me that before? You may have done but my memory, in some cases, is so bad.

I've always felt that I let whoever gave me that book down by not keeping it. The 'cause' was close to my heart at that time so it was donated with love.

I feel so much better now - one of these things one drags round with them. Thank you.

I will most certainly see you there - looking forward to it!

maybe the person who got the book in the raffle became a huge fan after buying the back catalogue after reading it or they gave it to someone who was a huge fan already

or a library :wub:

"For You: ...the person reading this, who perhaps just finished or is commuting to a long day at work, wondering how you will ever measure up, questioning yourself far more often than you give yourself a pat on the back. Or perhaps you have derived enough comfort from the music, and life itself, to achieve something unshakeable. No matter: Either way, you are part of this story. Without you, it does not exist. And here is the beauty of what it means to be a Bruce fan: Once you find yourself touched by his stories, you can't help but want to share your own. That is what I, and many other Bruce fans, have done in the pages of this book. If I had a wish for any of the authors here, or for myself, it is that we may be fortunate enough to thank Bruce in person someday."

This is the first story from the book For You Original Stories and Photograph’s by Bruce Springsteen’s Legendary Fans. Originally published in 2007,
it was chosen to lead off this “love letter” to Bruce because it accurately and more importantly emotionally sets the tone for the rest of the book.
It is posted here in its entirety for you. Enjoy.

This message is reaching out to those Bruce fans that may have not received the original email with details about the possible reprint of the limited edition book For You, or you did receive the email and had difficulty taking the survey. We apologize and invite you to try once again; we believe the tech issues have been resolved.

Did you miss out on owning one of the best-loved Bruce Springsteen books of the last ten years?

For You Original Stories and Photographs by Bruce Springsteen's Legendary Fans is a limited edition book published in 2007. It has been sold out since 2009.

Great News!

It looks quite likely that we will proceed with a For You book reprint,
but we still need a few more fans to take the survey. If you have
been sitting on the fence we ask you to please consider showing a
a partial commitment to the book by taking the For You book reprint survey today:
http://www.ForyouBruceBook.com

IF we go ahead, this second printing will be a small limited edition and safe to
say the last time the book will be available. IF you missed the first printing,
make sure you are not disappointed this time.
Please help share the news here on Greasy Lake, BTX, and on your Facebook Bruce Groups,
and on Twitter. Together let's make this happen.
many thanks, Lawrence
