Happy Birthday to "The Boss" -- Bruce Springsteen -- who turns 73 today (September 23rd)!!! Rolling Stone co-founder Jann Wenner let it slip that he's been listening to Springsteen's still-unannounced new album. During a recent chat with Billboard, Wenner was asked about the music he listens to and admitted: "I’m kind of stuck with the music I liked when I was young. Give me the (Rolling) Stones. There’s a new Bruce record coming out this fall, which is stunning. I’m listening to that."
