KCBS_740SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Bruce Springsteen credits his music with helping him navigate depression and says playing marathon shows until he was exhausted helped chase away the blues.

Springsteen spoke to a sold-out crowd in San Francisco on Wednesday night in a one-hour, 20-minute on-stage interview as part of a nationwide tour for his new autobiography “Born To Run.”

The 67-year-old rock legend has a storyteller’s knack for recounting the past in vivid detail, with wit and humor. He discussed writing the book, which took seven years, his troubled relationship with his father, memories of raising his three children with wife and longtime backup singer, Patti Scialfa, and his history with depression.

“Born to Run” was officially released in late September and has risen to the top of best-seller lists.
