Bruce Springsteen just turned 70 and he’s showing no signs of slowing down – just the opposite. He just released his critically acclaimed solo album Western Stars, and he’s getting ready to round up the E Street Band for a new album and tour.

Here’s a look back at seven memorable times Springsteen made a surprise appearance – on-stage or off – with bands big or small.
