During sessions at the Hit Factory in New York with the reunited E Street Band in 1995, Springsteen sits with a notepad to refine the lyrics for a new song.
"Every now and then, he was just trying to fix a song," says Rose. "He would sit in a corner. That's the classic guitar from the Born to Run cover. It's like his best friend almost sitting beside him as he works on a song. He works hard. He takes every word and every note seriously. He is contemplative and concentrating. He's definitely focused when he's doing it. As a writer, you need that space."
