The Bruce Springsteen Timeline

Spring 1983

Bruce stays in California where he records by himself. The recordings have been known as the Hollywood Hills Garage Tapes and include songs like "Follow That Dream", "Your Hometown" (an early version of "My Hometown") and "County Fair". Some of these recordings end up as b-sides on the Born in the USA singles.

Summer 1983

The E Street Band resumes the recording sessions in May. They will continue on and off throughout 1983. By this time Steve Van Zandt is no longer in the band, but is concentrating on his own solo career.
