20 years ago today (April 7th), the TV special Bruce Springsteen & the E Street BandLive in New York City aired on HBO. Their breakthrough hit, Born To Run was a surprisingly disappointing one in that it didn’t even crack the Top 20, Bruce’s fourth single, it was his first to crack the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number-23. “Born to Run” was the only song on the Born to Run album to feature the late E Street Band keyboardist Danny Federici. In 1993, he spoke about his contribution to the song and how sure they were that it would be their breakthrough hit.
