8. Bruce Springsteen, 'Born To Run'
The cover of Bruce Springsteen's Born To Run was shot by Eric Meola during just two and a half hours in June of 1975. "They came in at 10:00 a.m," Meola recalled in a 2006 interview. "They were exhausted. They looked as if they'd been up all night . . . It was a statement about race as well. I wanted to capture on film what they did in concert. It is very hard to re-create that kind of energy. But to their credit, they did it." During the final show of Springsteen and the E Street Band's 2009 tour, Springsteen and Clarence Clemons recreated the classic pose in the middle of "Growin' Up." With Clemons currently recovering from a stroke, Meola's photograph has taken on an added poignancy.
