Blind Items Revealed

October 13, 2010

Despite not having the hits he once did, this male singer still plays big arenas and is permanently on the A list. Anyway, our singer read a book he really liked and invited the author to come hang out for a weekend. The author told the singer that he had a teenage son who was a musician and also a big fan of the singer. The singer said to bring the son along. So, off they went. Over the weekend, the singer took the son around and brought him to a concert, took him backstage, introduced him to the members of the band and even let the teenager play with the band during a show. Totally made every dream of this kid come true.

Bruce Springsteen

Nice one, Boss.

Cari said...

Now that is class!

Heidi said...

Cool. Who's the author, Enty?

Ms. said...

Yup, that was cool.

Reese said...

Nice job Bruce. I'd also like to know who the author was.

pretzel logic said...

I think Bruce was the popular guess on this one. Way to go, Bruce!

Bitter Queen said...

OK, I don't like Springsteen and all his phoniness, but this is a good story. Good for him.

timebob said...

I didn't think it was Bruce, but I stand corrected.

Good for Bruce.

jess said...

A kind thing to do.

Vicki said...

That's a great story. I love the kindness blinds.

Anybody else think the reveals are more awesome this year?

Cari said...

Maybe it was Steven King? Does he still have a teenager?? I know Uncle Stevie like Bruce...

Christine said...

Vicki- I do too! I'm still reeling from old Hwood ones.

MCH said...

I especially loved that he let the kid play during the show. So awesome. Wish Enty could reveal the author too :)

Netta said...

Oh man, like I needed another reason to love the Boss Man. Nicely done.

sunnyside1213 said...

Great reveal. Love this one. And yes, I think they are better than usual.

sunnyside1213 said...

Enty....who is the author?

kind class BI

I must have missed this blind the first time so I went back to read the guesses. I'd like to hear some of these negative stories about Bruce because I've only read that he's a genuinely nice guy.

Also, and this sounds stupid, but does anyone know if he's a cat lover?

Bitter Queen said...

I don't know about whether he likes cats, but if reports from various divorce proceedings are to be believed, he likes OPP.

Ms. said...

OPP?

childeroland said...

In case anyone was still not convinced of the Boss's awesomeness...

Squeezebox said...

If original Enty had written this blind, you know he would've started by reminiscing about how he promoted some shows back in the day that this singer was really big, and then segued into the blind.

anita_mark said...

OPP = Other People's Property

I don't buy those stories. In one of them, the woman sounds like an insane stalker.

lanasyogamama said...

Yay Bruce!

TinselSass said...

I love Bruce (even with the affair rumors). Happy this reveal is him. If you love Bruce, the documentary, "The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town" is a must!

Marion said...

I know this is really stoopid, but I've had a love/hate relationship with Bruce since he divorced Julianne. I know I know - long time ago ! In regards to OPP - Patti - what goes around, comes around ! But this is a nice one - WTG Bruce ! Luv ya !

Cindy said...

Julianne didn't want to 'ruin' her body by having kids. Patti didn't mind.

anita_mark said...

And some people just weren't meant to be together. He's been with Patti for forever, why hold on to the past?

I love Bruce.

Debutante said...

And this is why New Jersey rocks !

LOL Seriously, that's a class act.

ms snarky said...

Bruce did cheat with Patti, but Julianne was pretty removed from the marriage, from what I remember at the time, and Julianne made some pretty big $ from that settlement. Not condoning, but sometimes, getting married just wasn't a good idea to begin with.

ms snarky said...

p.s. Listen to Tunnel of Love - that song /album was all about Bruce becoming disillusioned with the person he was involved with. It really does say it all.

Moonmaid said...

I know someone who works for Bruce. He is genuinely this nice, which is rare in the music biz. He treats the people who work for him very well.

sandman said...

if he did,'t suck the kids cox, then its just another lameass reveal, whats next, he bought girl scout cookies from the neighbors?... oh what a saint.

Sunnyhorse said...

If you don't like the kindness reveals, Sandman, then don't bother reading them.

Mandy said...

Very nice. I know a few people who know or have met him, and I've never heard anything negative about him. Those affair rumors seem to have stopped, making me think it wasn't true.

Meir said...

Yay Boss, this nearly made me well up! I was hoping it was him!

And LMAO at the use of OPP (hehehe)
