Who is Bruce Springsteen?
Born Bruce Federick Joseph Springsteen on September 23, 1949, Bruce Springsteen is perhaps one of the best known American singers, songwriters and guitarists of our time. Most people probably know Bruce Springsteen as being a part of the E Street Band, but "The Boss" has easily made a name for himself in his own right.
Highly decorated, this star of heartland rock has won 15 Grammy Awards and one Academy Award, having won over an international audience. His discography dates back to 1973 with the release of Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. and climbs into the present with his latest offering, Magic, an album released in 2007. Some Bruce Springsteen songs you may have heard include Streets of Philadelphia, Dancing in the Dark and Born in the USA.

Make Your Own Springsteen Ringtones
There are many ways that you can go about making your own ringtones. If you have a favorite compact disc (CD), it is possible to use programs like Windows Media Player to "rip" the audio tracks from the CD. What results will either be a WMA or an MP3 file, and then you can use free software like Audacity to crop the section of the song you'd like to use as a ringer. This is an excellent way to create custom Bruce Springsteen ringtones.
For further instructions on how to get this MP3 file onto your compatible cell phone, read the guide on how to upload music on your mobile phone. Bear in mind that not all phones are capable of having custom ringtones, so check with your wireless service provider for more information.
