FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) – Coming across Bruce Springsteen on a broken down motorcycle on the side of the road could probably be a lyric from one of his songs, but it really happened for a group of guys from New Jersey.

A group from the Freehold American Legion was riding after a Veterans Day event Friday when they pulled over to help a stranded motorcyclist who turned out to be The Boss.

Ryan Bailey says Springsteen hopped on the back of his bike and they headed to a local bar while he waited for a ride.

Dan Barkalow says Springsteen was down to earth and they “talked about motorcycles and his old Freehold days.”

Springsteen was raised in Freehold and still lives in New Jersey. The legion post says Springsteen is eligible to join since his father was a veteran.
