Online Bruce Springsteen Museum To Feature 300 Artifacts
Fans of Bruce Springsteen will have a chance to see an extensive collection of 300 rare and vintage artifacts spanning the rocker’s incredible five-decade career in a online museum set to launch in June.
According to Rolling Stone, the online museum called BlindedByTheLight.com will launch to coincide with the 30th anniversary of Born In The U.S.A. next month and will feature items including handwritten lyric sheets, concert posters, Springsteen’s driver’s license, report cards and more memorabilia being added in coming months.
The site was founded by Michael Crane, who has previously contributed pieces to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and hopes to draw in visits from fans by holding a contest every six months on the site, Rolling Stone notes. The first item up for grabs is original album artwork signed by the Boss himself, but Crane teases a big contest later on as his plans to give away the musician’s 1957 Chevy Bel Air Convertible, where he wrote the lyrics to “Born To Run.”
You can get a preview of some of the Springsteen collectibles that will be featured as part of the museum on the site’s official Facebook page.
