Producer Ridley Scott and his company Scott Free productions made the crowd-sourced documentary 'Life in a Day' which comprised of video clips submitted by people around the world.

Springsteen & I follows a similar route as we see a selection of clips sent by Springsteen fans mixed with some concert footage of Bruce. Of all the performers out there, Springsteen is a sensible choice. He is not the latest fad who will disappear after a few albums, or an old dinosaur living off past hits for years on end but someone still releasing new material, touring with new material and a worldwide fan base spanning a few decades.

Obviously Springsteen fans would appreciate this the most but the film stands and fall by the contributors and here some of it is lacking and rather dull. A bit too much of we love Bruce and what he means to me but little of real substance.

Some of the best stories were for example the Philly Elvis who managed to get on stage and sing Elvis songs with Bruce or the guy who got dumped and managed to talk to Bruce and have his request played as well as a street busker who managed to get Bruce to sing with him (although rather a few famous singers end up singing with buskers these days as YouTube is full of those clips.)

There is one British contributor who states Bruce means love for his partner, because for her he endures listening to his music and going to his concerts which are by the way too long as far as he is concerned.

Another contributor also from Britain tells the story how he went to New York to see him in concert only to find he had tickets that the seats were right at the back of the stadium (know how he feels as its happened to me a few times) and then a mysterious man upgraded him to the best seats in the house (which has never happened to me).

These stories were few and far between and you gather that some of the contributions were probably not that good.
