Bruce Springsteen says you have to suffer for your art.

In a new interview, The Boss talked about inspiration saying, “I believe that most successful, obsessive artists have something very special eating at them, and that’s what makes them interesting to us.”

Springsteen went on to say, “There is an indescribable problem at their center that they’re constantly trying to sort out.

It’s not completely ‘sort-out-able,’ but you can’t find elements of clues that bring you closer to the source.

And this is how people are using their craft. This is how you can’t take your eyes off them or your ears.”
