The night didn’t end there. Backstage after the show, Flav met Springsteen for a more personal interaction. Videos surfaced online showcasing Flav’s heartfelt greeting. He bowed repeatedly while expressing his admiration: “What’s up, Bruce? This is such an honour, man! This is such an honour, bro! Man, man, man, many, many, many good blessings to you, bro.”

This camaraderie might seem unexpected at first glance. However, a deeper connection exists between the two artists. Tom Morello, a guitarist who occasionally performs with Springsteen’s E Street Band, is also a member of the supergroup Prophets of Rage alongside Public Enemy’s Chuck D. This shared musical link adds another layer to the story.
