An explosive unauthorized biography written with the help of Mike Appel, Springsteen's former producer/manager. Based on exclusive interviews and previously unreleased material, including depositions from the lawsuit that prevented Springsteen from recording for over a year, Down Thunder Road traces Springsteen's rise to fame and reveals the man behind the myth. Originally published in 1992, this title is now available for the first time in a full-ebook edition with photos, legal documents and memorabilia in high resolution.

LIBARY JOURNAL: "Rock writer Eliot chronicles Springsteen's rise to stardom during the mid-1970s. By effectively patching together lengthy quotes, he outlines the rock star's New Jersey childhood, mentions his first bands, and concentrates on Springsteen's relationship and 1976 split with Appel, who managed the singer/guitarist to his Born To Run (1975) success and whose recollections form the basis of this book."

Springsteen reflections on Mike Appel:

Page 169:  The bottom line was I liked Mike and I knew he understood what I wanted to do musically.  We weren't aiming for a few successful records and some modest hits.  We were aiming for impact, for influence, for the top rung of what recording artists are capable of achieving.  We both knewrock music was a culture shapper, I wanted to collide with the times and create a voice that had musical, social and cultural impact.  Mike understood that this was my goal.  In the end, I would have signed Mike's jockey shorts, if he'd presented them to me, to get my foot in the door.

Page 258:  Along with Jon and Steve, Mike was my musical brother in arms.  He knew everything about the great groups, the fabulous hit records, every important nuance of the great singers' voices, thegreatest riffs, the heart and soul that were in our favorite music.  When we talked, he could finish mysentences.  He was a fan with all the beauty and import that word carries for me.  Mike was funny, cynical, dreamy and profane, and when you were with him, you were always laughing.

Page 258:  We had been someplace special together, someplace unique, a place where we had to depend upon each other and nothing else, where things that meant something were at stake.  I could never hate Mike; I can only love him.
