Bruce Springsteen Mourns The Death Of His Mother At 98

Bruce Springsteen recently shared the somber news of his beloved mother Adele passing at the remarkable age of 98.

Taking to Instagram, the venerable musician poured out his emotions in a poignant tribute to his mother, weaving in poignant lyrics from his composition, “The Wish.” In his heartfelt post, he reminisced about the quiet mornings filled with the sound of his mother’s alarm clock and her bustling preparations for the day ahead. Each word painted a vivid tableau of her homeward journey from work, her demeanor radiant with pride and contentment.

“It ain’t no phone call on Sunday, flowers or a Mother’s Day card. It ain’t no house on the hill with a garden and a nice little yard. I’ve got my hot rod down on Bond Street I’m older but you’ll know me in a glance. We’ll find us a Little rock ‘n roll bar and we’ll go out and dance.”

Accompanying this deeply moving message was a poignant video capturing Springsteen and his mother, their spirits lifted in a dance of joy to the timeless strains of Glenn Miller’s big band classic, “In the Mood.”

The Roots Embedded in Maternal Love

Adele, a native of Brooklyn born in the vibrant year of 1925, entered into matrimony with Douglas Frederick “Dutch” Springsteen in 1948. Their abode nestled in the heart of Freehold, New Jersey, where they nurtured and raised their two cherished offspring, Bruce and Pamela. Adele faced the trials of managing both finances and childcare single-handedly, as Douglas grappled with his mental health battles.

The maestro of rock and roll often attributed his profound passion for music to the enduring influence of his mother, declaring, “There ain’t a note that I play on stage that can’t be traced back to my mother.” A poignant testament to their bond was immortalized in a memorable 2013 performance at London’s Hyde Park, where Springsteen and his mother shared a tender dance, forging an indelible connection that transcended time and space.
