School's Out!

From last week, in Brisbane, Australia, please enjoy Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band with a kid in the audience who was skipping school. And a quite wonderful impromptu version of "Growin' Up."

I've said this before and I'll say it again -- Bruce is a genuine living saint.

And if this doesn't bring a smile to your lips or a tear to your eye -- please seek medical attention.

My favorite comment over at YouTube: "If there was a Nobel Prize for bringing joy to the world Bruce would win it every time."

This kid is a jukebox graduate, Bruce, a saint in the city.

My fantasy.. Shea... John says to Paul- "mate we need one more guitar on this one.. let's call up the kid (me) with the sign.." I walk up to the stage and george hands me his backup guitar.. and they go into "day tripper" or something ..
this kid in Australia lived out my fantasy at age 15.. thing is.. I still have it !

A friend had posted this on their FB a few days ago, and it blew me away. I'm hardly the biggest Bruce fan in the world...mainly through Nebraska or so...but I love *this* version of "Growin' Up" even more that Bruce's original, I think. The kid's just so fucking confident...!
