    49 Shots

    Please set me clear on the following in red. From <<Leading the life You Want>> by Stewart D. Friedman.

    ... but the young Springsteen (still in his twenties) wouldn't stop driving his bandmates, producers, and engineers until everyone grasped exactly the sound he was looking for. Another episode, much further down the line, occurred during a live performance of "49 Shots."

    I've heard of "41 shots." But is there a song called "49 shots" that Springsteen made? Or is it a typo of "41 shots"?

    Thank you.

    I haven't heard of "49 shots". It is probably supposed to be "41 Shots".

    That sort of mistake can occur in written text nowadays as things tend to be checked by machines rather than people.
