Bruce Springsteen has been on a serious tear lately—he recently wowed audiences in Austin, turning a 10-minute keynote speech at SxSW into an hour-long treatise on how creative greatness is a paradox of both ambition and humility. And then this week, at a “Wrecking Ball” tour stop in Philadelphia, he runs into the crowd to sing with fans, and when one sticks half a beer in front of his face he chugs it like a college bro.
Springsteen is now sixty-two years old, wiser and more eloquent than ever, and also apparently at his most unpretentious. Guess that’s why he’s still The Boss. The epic chug comes at 1:30 in the video below, but the whole thing is really worth a watch.
