Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 10/02/16

The Boss appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” Friday night to plug his new memoir, “Born to Run,” and the talk turned to Springsteen’s Catholic upbringing.

Check out the clip below, in which Springsteen talks about how his Catholicism affected his music—and he remembers his first experience as an altar boy. He even speaks a little Latin.
