Teen Takes Stage with the Boss

One lucky Australian teen got to share the stage with the Boss at a Brisbane, Australia, concert. During the concert, Nathan Testa’s sign: “Missed school, in the s—, now can I play ‘Growin’ Up’ with you?” caught the singer’s eye. Bruce Springsteen, a member of Locals 399 (Asbury Park, NJ) and 47 (Los Angeles, CA), asked Testa if he knew the guitar part and invited him up on stage.

Springsteen even took a moment to give the aspiring musician some advice: “When I was your age, I bought my first guitar, and I realized, it wasn’t how well you played it, but how good you looked doing it. So go in front of the mirror trying out different poses.”
