Win the new edition of classic fan tale book For You (contest ended)

Published 2020-02-09
If you never managed to get your hands on the long sold-out 2007 publication For You, or if you belong to a new generation of fans who wants to know what it was like to be a fan back in the days, here's your chance to win a copy of this beautiful work.

This contest has ended.

"For You: Original Stories and Photographs by Bruce Springsteen's Legendary Fans", compiled by Lawrence Kirsch, wasn't the first book consisting of fan tales of Springsteen shows, and there have been others published since. But with its 200 beautifully layouted pages, hundreds of photographs, and stories spanning Bruce's career from the early 70's till Seeger Sessions, "For You" is still the most essential in capturing Bruce Springsteen from a fan perspective.

Back when the book was first published, I wrote a review that still sums up how I feel about the book pretty well. The new edition, unfortunately, hasn't been updated to include the last decade, but you still get all the fan stories you could ever want about the legendary tours of the 70's and 80's as well as lots of post-reunion impressions.

Now, if you want to get your hands on this book, you can of course head straight to and buy a copy, but you can also try your luck right now and see if you can win the free copy that Lawrence Kirsch has been nice enough to let us give to one lucky person among our readers.
