A group of good Samaritans were immediately rewarded for their good deed on Friday when the stranded motorcyclist they stopped to assist turned out to be Bruce Springsteen.
Dan Barkalow was leading a group of bikers called the Freehold American Legion Riders back from a Veteran's Day ceremony at the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial in Holmdel, New Jersey, when he noticed a broken-down bike and pulled over to help.
According to CNN, Barkalos was "a little star struck" when he realized the biker in need was none other than The Boss himself.
"It's a day I probably won't forget for a while," Barkalow, 54, told the news network. "The moment I got off the bike I saw it was him, and he was a real nice, down-to-earth guy."
Springsteen, 67, was so nice that he invited Barkalow and his crew of bikers for a round of drinks while waiting for a ride when his motorcycle's dead battery failed to charge. Barkalow told CNN the guys talked about motorcycles and "good old Freehold, [New Jersey]."
Afterwards, biker Ryan Bailey told CNN that the GRAMMY winner took down everyone's contact information. As a New Jersey native, Springsteen reportedly promised to get the guys tickets to his show if he performs in the area.
Later, there was a damper put on this bright moment when the story was shared on Facebook. The post quickly saw backlash from commenters who disapproved of Springsteen's support of Hillary Clinton through her presidential bid.
"It's pretty disgusting," Barkalow said later of the nasty comments. "All I know is, I'm a pretty humble guy. I just stopped to help someone out."
