The Bruce Springsteen Timeline

1968

The Castiles break up when most of the members begin to find other interests in life. Bruce, however, has his mind set on a musical career and forms a new band called Earth. Bruce meets Steve Van Zandt for the first time. Bruce briefly attends Ocean County College, but soon realizes he will never adjust to the educational system. Bruce's parents move to California. Bruce himself remains in New Jersey staying at friends' houses and at a surfboard factory in Asbury Park. It is in Asbury Park he from now on will have his base and shape his musical style.
