When a group of Freehold, New Jersey bikers spotted a fellow biker stranded at the side of the road, they didn't think twice about helping him out. But, as he approached the man, Dan Barkalow thought he looked familiar.
Turns out, that stranded biker was none other than New Jersey royalty - Bruce Springsteen!
According to CNN, the Freehold American Legion Riders were on their way back from a Veteran's Day ceremony at the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial in Holmdel, New Jersey, when they happened upon Springsteen.
The bikers attempted to charge the rocker's dead battery, but when it wouldn't start, they gave him a lift to a nearby restaurant. Springsteen bought the bunch a round of beers and hung out with them for about 45 minutes, chatting about the town they all grew up in.
When his ride came, Springsteen took the group's contact information and offered tickets to his next concert in the area.
"It's a day I probably won't forget for a while," Dan Barkalow, 54 said, "...he was a real nice, down-to-earth guy."
