Madison Square Garden Sandy Concert Backstage action

Last edited Fri Jan 10, 2014, 08:55 AM - Edit history (10)

Nothing short of a supernatural disaster was needed get New Jersey's Bruce "The Boss" Springsteen and Chris "Governor Soprano" Christie in the same room -- and even then, the room had to be Madison Square Garden!

It's no secret that Christie has been begging for an audience with Bruce (if not a concert to benefit the state coffers), and claims to have been to at least 100 of his concerts. But for some reason, "The Boss" has barely given him the time of day. It took no less than the president of the United States to broker a phone conversation between them -- one that probably wouldn't have happened without super hurricane Sandy as a backdrop. Well, at the 12.12.12 Sandy Benefit at Madison Square Garden, a warm, attentive, respectful meeting took place between them (though it looks more like Bruce is on his way to the men's room -- did he even stop walking?):




After which Christie attempted to have (Obama supporter) Jon Bon Jovi for dessert:




After which Jon smooched with Beatle Sir Paul McCartney (something I've wanted to do since I was eight years old):

1. This cracked me up! Thanks for that! I hear Bruce and Christie are now

'tight' via Jon Stewart, but didn't know about Bon Jovi and Christie and McCartney!

2. Chris and Bruce are now "tight"?

Well, keep in mind that Stewart was at the benefit, too -- who knows who HE kissed?
