Springsteen Looking for $10 Million Book Deal

Wednesday, 04 Nov 2009 10:51 AM

Rocker Bruce Springsteen is reportedly working on an autobiography that could fetch a record-setting $10 million advance.

"It could be the biggest rock music autobiography of all time," a publishing industry insider told New York Post "Media Ink" columnist Keith Kelly.

"He could get $9 million to $10 million for the world rights."

Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones got an $8 million advance for his autobiography, and Eric Clapton got $4 million.

Springsteen, 60, has kept journals throughout his long career and they would serve as the basis for his book, according to Kelly.

He has already been the subject of several biographies written by Dave Marsh, including "Born to Run: The Bruce Springsteen Story." Marsh is married to Springsteen's co-manager Barbara Carr.

But the insider declared: "Springsteen is a better writer than Marsh."
