    Nils Lofgren, a guitarist for 25 years with the E Street Band, was on the Nick and Artie show last night and Artie mentioned Bruce had called him to cheer him up when Artie was in his dark place.

    Does this mean Springsteen is/was a Stern Show fan?

    It was probably Craig Gass doing an impression.

    Yea, I call bullshit on this. Artie is another one who, how shall I put it, embellishes‚Äč a lot to fill time. I didn't believe half the shit he said when he was on the show.

    Nils & Little Stevie must have put Bruce up to it.

    Nils Lofgren talked about both his wife and him being big fans of Artie for a long time, they went to one of his gigs in Arizona in 2004 to meet him and have been friends ever since. I think maybe Nils asked Bruce to call Artie as a favor. Nils talked about the call like it was fact.

    Oh, ok, well if Nils said it then I believe it. If Artie was the only source, then I would be skeptical.

    I wonder is Ace Frehley would call me if I stabbed myself?

    A voice impersonator called Artie. Springsteen doesn't know Artie intimately enough to call him one on one.

    I hope Artie called Fa Fa Fooey to rub it in his face.

    I was about to post that despite finding Springsteen pretty affected and phoney since the early days, but now I call bullshit. Nobody is a "big fan" of Artie in terms of his standup. At least not someone capable of performing music on a professional level.

    They never said they were a big fan of his standup, that's just dumb. What happened was, Nil's wife was a big fan of Arties through the Stern show so they went to one of his Arizona gigs hoping to meet him. They did meet that night and both the wife and Nils became his friend after that. Nils has even given Artie some guitar lesson recently.

    i call shenanigans. more likely, Art thought he was talking to Springsteen thanks to all the meds he was on following "the incident".
