Bruce Springsteen turned 65 on Tuesday, but don't expect him to plop down on the porch in a rocking chair. He still likes to hit the road with his band.

Springsteen has spent most of this year touring South Africa, Australia and the United States, according to NJ.com. The non-stop singer also co-directed and released a short film "Hunter of Invisible Game" in July.

"It's odd to think of the boisterous rock star, who for years represented the young, blue-jeaned, working-class male being classified as a senior citizen," wrote Bobby Olivier of NJ.com. "After more than 40 years of touring, 18 albums and 65 million U.S. records sold, Springsteen and his faithful E Street Band are still one of the music world's premier acts, annually traveling the globe and selling out each venue within minutes."

According to the New York Post, Springsteen ticket sales set him apart from most entertainers – $1.14 billion over the the past 15 years – but Springsteen is also special because of story after story that make the rocker sound like just one of the guys from around the corner.

"He is revered by his fans, in large part, because in many ways he hasn't lost the common touch," wrote John Crudele of the New York Post. "Neighbors in and around his New Jersey town share stories of him driving his truck to his Shrewsbury gym to work out. And Springsteen has been known to hang out in Red Bank, New Jersey, with an occasional visit to Jack's Music Shoppe."

"In his town he has bought up huge tracts of land that would have otherwise gone to developers. He has quietly – and sometimes, not so quietly – contributed large amounts of money to social causes," wrote Crudele

On Nov. 5, Springsteen will headline the "Stand Up for Heroes" benefit in New York City, which also will feature Louis C.K., John Oliver and Brian Williams, according to CBS News.
