Meanwhile, Springsteen is on the cover of the new issue of Uncut – which is available in UK stores and to buy digitally from Tuesday, February 23. Inside, the E Street Band celebrate the making of The River, the current tour and reflect on their enduring friendships down the years.

“You kinda give up and enjoy the ride,” Steve Van Zandt tells us. “We could’ve been recording that thing forever.”

The March 2016 issue of Uncut is now on sale in the UK – featuring our 19 page David Bowie tribute plus Loretta Lynn, Tim Hardin, Animal Collective, The Kinks, Mavis Staples, The Pop Group, Field Music, Clint Mansell, Steve Mason, Eric Clapton, Bert Jansch, Grant Lee Phillips and more plus our free 15-track CD
