Forty years ago today Bruce Springsteen released his third studio album, Born to Run. In honor of the milestone, we've compiled 20 Springsteen photos from between 1975 to 2012.
We've also republished a 2005 Floridian feature in which Times staffers remember their first time seeing the Boss.
And while we here in the newsroom celebrate Springsteen, we invite you to take part as well! Share your favorite concert photos and Bruce Springsteen memories on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #tbtspringsteen.
