Despite his status as a veritable institution within American music, Bruce Springsteen's allure has often stemmed from an aura of relatability, the indescribable sensation of "I could have a beer with this guy". Springsteen is casual, smart and funny—when compared to Picasso, he's quick to refer instead to the likes of Abbot and Costello—and these qualities emerge in spades as part of a recent interview with NPR's Ann Powers. The Boss covers a range of topics, from the gestation of "Ghost of Tom Joad" to the similarities he shares with the folk-singer hero of the most recent Coen brothers' film, Inside Llewyn Davis.
