[MEET THE NEW BOSS] While the stack of rock stars' personal memoirs continues to grow, the real boss of music biographies these days is former Oregonian scribe Peter Ames Carlin, who wrote the definitive story of Brian Wilson, Catch a Wave, in 2007, and followed it with Paul McCartney: A Life in 2010. His latest tome, New York Times bestseller Bruce, is his most successful yet, for which he enjoyed unprecedented access to Springsteen's inner circle—including the actual Boss phoning up ex-girlfriends to encourage them to talk to Carlin. Tonight's event incorporates Springsteen songs performed by such local heroes as Storm Large, Corin Tucker and Casey Neill, but it's the author who receives top billing—because the night belongs to Carlin.
