When you go to a Bruce Springsteen concert you stay until the Boss is done doing his thing, and these days that can last three or four hours easy, which could spell trouble for any elementary school students in the audience.
A young man named Xabi attended a Springsteen concert with his superfan dad Scott Glovsky at L.A. Memorial Sports Arena on a Tuesday night, and when the concert didn't end until 11:40 Xabi thought he might be in trouble.
Luckily he'd held up a sign during the concert that said “Bruce, I will be late to school tomorrow, please sign my note”, and the Boss proved he's still the Boss by actually writing the kid a note.
Bruce invited Xabi and his dad backstage and wrote him a note that read ““Dear Ms. Jackson, Xabi has been out very late rocking + rolling. Please excuse him if he is tardy!”
And that's how a new generation of Bruce Springsteen fans are born.
