Springsteen hasn’t done a day’s work since his teens

Even though he has spent much of his career writing songs about the working man, Bruce Springsteen will be the first to tell you he hasn’t done much in the way of hard work himself.

As part of the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival, the Boss sat down with actor Tom Hanks for a conversation about his life and music. “The only honest work I’ve ever done in my entire life was at 14 or 15 when I was a lawn boy,” he told the crowd at the Beacon Theatre. “I painted houses and tarred roofs in the summertime – that was to get the money to buy my first guitar.”

But the fans still love him all the same, and over the course of the hour, Hanks attempted to get to the bottom of that long-held affection. Here are some the highlights from their discussion.

Legion Riders Rescue Bruce

Dan Barkalow with Bruce

Freehold American Legion – Monmouth Post 54 with Dan Barkalow.

Yesterday at 4:27pm ·

What started out as a story of interest posted to our American Legion Facebook page has devolved into a nauseating political altercation full of vitriol and insults, none of which are from our members. If we are to survive as a nation both sides have to stop the hate. Both the incoming and outgoing presidents have asked for unity, we should listen.

There are men and women serving in the military who are now deployed far from their home. They are putting their lives at risk, they have left their families and the people they love to defend this nation.

Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

-Legion Riders Rescue Bruce-

Yesterday members of Post 54 Legion Riders, Dan Barkalow (pictured) and Bob Grigs with their friend Ryan Bailey represented Post 54 at the Veteran’s Day ceremony conducted at the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial in Holmdel. At the conclusion of the ceremony they decided to take advantage of the beautiful day by taking a ride to Manasquan before returning to Freehold.

On the way home, taking the back roads to Freehold, lead rider, Dan, noticed a broken down bike on the side of Allaire Road, near Allaire State Park. The Legion Riders pulled over to assist their fellow motorcyclist, who just happened to be Freehold native Bruce Springsteen.

Unable to get his bike started, Bruce called for help, hopped on the back of Ryan’s bike and they drove to Mulligans in Farmingdale. One beer later his ride arrived.

Dan stated that Bruce was a very down to earth regular guy who fit right in with his fellow, not so famous, Freehold boys. Bruce did take their names and telephone numbers, so maybe they’ll be riding together some day!
