Bruce Springsteen recently shared the sad news of his mother Adele’s passing at the age of 98.
On Instagram, the iconic musician expressed his feelings in a touching tribute to his mom, using lyrics from his song “The Wish.” The post reminisced about mornings hearing his mother’s alarm clock and her getting ready for work. It painted a vivid picture of her walking home from the office, radiating pride and happiness.
“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.”
The heartfelt message was complemented by a video featuring Springsteen and his mother joyfully dancing to Glenn Miller’s big band classic, “In the Mood.”
The Roots That Trace Back to His Mother
Adele, born in Brooklyn in 1925, married Douglas Frederick “Dutch” Springsteen in 1948. The couple settled in Freehold, New Jersey, where they raised their two children, Bruce and Pamela. Adele faced the challenges of managing finances and childcare as Douglas struggled with mental health issues.
The rock legend often acknowledged his mother as the source of his deep love for music, stating, “There ain’t a note that I play on stage that can’t be traced back to my mother.” In a memorable 2013 performance in London’s Hyde Park, Springsteen shared a dance with his mother, creating a lasting moment of connection.
