Artie brought up he and one of his buddies met Bruce Springsteen this weekend at a concert of one of Bruce's friends, Joe Grushecky. Artie explained there were rumors Bruce was going to be at the show, but that they weren't confirmed, so he was thrilled when he found out he was there. Artie then acknowledged he was "scared" when a worker at the club offered to make an introduction for him, and when he got the opportunity, he was introduced as "Artie Lange from 'The Howard Stern Show' on SIRIUS," and told Bruce that his "music meant a lot to me growing up."
However, Artie reported all Bruce said in response was, "All right, man, all right, man…take care." Upon hearing that, Howard said, to him, it was at that moment that it would've helped Artie if he'd had "big tits," before remembering the time he met Bruce at a restaurant. Howard added, though, neither he nor Bruce was that interested in speaking, but that they said hello just because they were both celebrities.
Robin then mentioned she was introduced to Bruce at a Rainforest Benefit Concert years ago, and that her strategy was to talk to one of the benefit's performers, James Taylor, until Bruce came up to them, which she said he did after just a few minutes. Artie went on to say Bruce ended up getting onstage and playing "Johnny 99," "Atlantic City" and "Darkness On the Edge of Town," and "jammed with Joe's band until 2:30 a.m." Because they were on the topic of music, Howard said he was thinking about putting together a special called "The Robin Quivers Christmas Special," where she would wear a cocktail dress and performed eight songs cabaret style. However, Robin admitted she wasn't that thrilled with the idea, and completely dismissed it when Howard suggested the show finish with "a shocking of the puss."
