Bruce Springsteen did a solid for a nine-year-old fan attending his Los Angeles show on Tuesday night (March 15th) — he wrote him a tardy note. Vintage Vinyl News reported that young Xabi Glovsky, toted along a sign in the crowd saying:“Bruce, I will be late for school tomorrow. Please sign my note :)” Sure enough, “The Boss” saw the note, and had his people bring Xabi and his dad backstage after the show, where Springsteen wrote the note and posed for a photo.
Dad Scott Glovsky relayed story to Backstreets.com, saying: “As Bruce walked off stage after the show, he looked up and saw my son’s sign. . . he pointed to us and pointed to one of the security crew. About three minutes later, security came to our seats and escorted us backstage. We waited outside Bruce’s dressing room, then he came to the door and invited us in. Although there were many musicians and celebrities at the concert, we were the first people to see Bruce after the show. He said, ‘There’s the big guy!’ to my son. It was just the three of us. He then said, ‘I understand that you need a note, I think I can help you out.’ Bruce sat down on a couch and started to talk with Xabi, asking for the name of his teacher and how Xabi spelled his name, pulling out a piece of paper and a pen. As Xabi sat next to him on the couch, Bruce thoughtfully and artistically created this beautiful note. It was very interesting to watch the artist at work. They talked for a few minutes, and Bruce was incredibly nice, caring and gracious.”
