Springsteen Auctions Signed Guitar, Music Lesson, Sidecar Ride,...

Posted by - 08:19 PM on 02/09/13
Bruce Springsteen was honored as the MusiCares Person of The Year, and the tribute concert featured Elton John, Tom Morello, Neil Young, Mumford & Sons and others playing classic songs by The Boss to raise money for charity. Springsteen also auctioned off a signed guitar, but the auction wasn't going that well, so...
Springsteen took the microphone and upped the ante, throwing in a free guitar lesson with himself as the teacher, a ride in the side car of his Harley, eight tickets to the E Street concert of their choice, a backstage tour and lasagna made by his 87-year-old mother, Adele. A woman from New Jersey snapped it up for $250,000, then proceeded to kiss Springsteen on his lips.

A signed guitar is worth no more than a few thousand, maybe. It's not like Bruce Springstein's autograph is going to get anywhere near $250,000...

There's a reason they call him "the boss."

Didn't Thomas kiss a girl on stage at warped tour a few years back? Clearly that was all practice.
