Possible Influence on Bruce Springsteen

From the staff at Ultimate Classic Rock: “I think in the three years between Born to Run and Darkness, he’d [Bruce Springsteen] simply learned a lot. He spent a great deal of time in court, for one thing; he began listening to Hank Williams and old-time, class-conscious country music. He’d seen the films of John Ford and Howard Hawks and John Huston, and read the novels of John Steinbeck and John Dos Passos that Jon Landau had given him.”
