During a break from a motorbike journey from Los Angeles, Bruce Springsteen stopped in at Matt’s Saloon in Prescott, Arizona.  While he was there he jammed with the house band including a bunch of rock and roll classics, like Presley’s ‘Don’t Be Cruel,’ and some Chuck Berry with ‘Sweet Little Sixteen’ and ‘Route 66.’ Bruce also donated $100,000 to a barmaid’s hospital bill and the link describing her reactions below.
