-Because Springsteen needs a counterpart here, and I thought he’d be an interesting singer to profile. I'm not sure about the voice type; I want to say he’s a raspy-sounding tenor (at least in the 80’s) since he sang in the low-mid 4th octave most of the time (it's hard to tell how easily though), but he probably has more lows in his later songs that I’ll have to notewatch when I get the time. Until then, I can only come up with the "Baritenor" label and roughly two octaves.
