Xabi Glovsky met Bruce Springsteen on a school night – and The Boss made sure he would be excused by his teacher if he came late to class the next day.
The nine-year-old schoolboy and his die-hard fan father wouldn’t miss seeing Springsteen in Los Angeles for the world – even if Xabi had class the next day – so they fashioned a sign reading “Bruce, I will be late to school tomorrow. Please sign my note :-)”.

Once the three-and-a-half hour rock and roll set ended, a security guard located the father and son to bring them backstage by order of the Boss himself.
“Although there were many musicians and celebrities at the concert, we were the first people to see him after the show,” Scott Glovsky told the Claremont Courier. “Bruce said ‘There’s the big guy’ when he saw my son.”
With a flick of the wrist, the rock star scribbled out a note for Xabi’s teacher explaining his tardiness.
“Idols rarely live up to your expectations,” Mr. Glovsky added. ”Bruce lived up to every expectation a nine-year-old boy could have—or a 48-year-old boy could have.”
The youth did wake up late, at 10:45 on Wednesday morning, but with a big smile on his face.
