    Forget a "Long Goodbye," he was "Born to Run."

    Bruce Springsteen is celebrating his 60th birthday Wednesday, and his fellow Garden Staters overwhelmingly believe he needs to keep on rockin'.

    Eighty-six percent of New Jersey adults surveyed say Springsteens glory days have not passed him by, according to a Monmouth University/Gannett New Jersey poll.

    Only 4 percent of those questioned say the native son is probably getting too old to rock and just 3 percent say he is definitely too old.

    Springsteen also ranks with Elvis Presley in the survey. "The Boss" ties with "The King" for the Garden States all-time favorite rocker.

    The survey shows Springsteen's broadest appeal is to middle-age residents.

    And in honor of the Bruce's 60th, Jersey's Star-Ledger celebrates 60 totally boss moments.
