Interscope Records CEO and Beats Electronics found Jimmy Iovine is a long way from E Street where he was a key producer on Bruce Springsteen's "Darkness on the Edge of Town" album and helped Springsteen develop "his million-dollar sound."
On May 17, Iovine delivered the commencement address for the University of Southern California's Class of 2013. He was funny, thoughtful, musical and brought along a doctor friend of his.
Iovine was immortalized by Springsteen in the line "Hitting cool like Jimmy Iovine" in the Darkness-era song "Ain't Good Enough For You." But long before that, he was helping Springsteen develop the vision and sound of his music.
