The 66-year-old singer detailed his fight with mental health and how he came to be plagued by depression in recent years.

During a recent interview with Vanity Fair ahead of the book’s release on September 27, The Boss explained how he had previously seen his father battling with the illness.

“You don’t know the illness’s parameters,” he said. “Can I get sick enough to where I become a lot more like my father than I thought I might?”

“I was crushed between sixty and sixty-two, good for a year and out again from sixty-three to sixty-four,” the legendary musician explains.

But he has praised the support of wife, and fellow E Street Band member, Patti Scialfa, who helped the star through his darkest days.

He said: “Patti will observe a freight train bearing down, loaded with nitroglycerin and running quickly out of track… she gets me to the doctors and says, ‘This man needs a pill’.”

Bruce’s autobiography is released on September 27.
