Bruce Springsteen Opens Up About Suffering From Depression in 'Vanity Fair' October 2016 Cover Story

Bruce Springsteen looks pretty badass on a motorcycle for the October 2016 cover of Vanity Fair magazine.

Here’s what the 66-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On struggling with depression like his father: “You don’t know the illness’s parameters. Can I get sick enough to where I become a lot more like my father than I thought I might?”

On working out: “I had a body that just kind of popped in six months. But if you want to get into it deeper, my father was built big, so there was some element of ‘O.K., I’m 34. I’m a man now.’ I remember my father at that age. There was the idea of creating a man’s body to a certain degree. I suppose I was measuring that after my dad. And also, perhaps, in some way, trying to please him.”

On his upcoming album: “It’s a solo record, more of a singer-songwriter kind of record.”
