Bruce Springsteen mother death 98 years mourning

Bruce Springsteen announces the death of his mother at 98 after battling Alzheimer's, shares touching tribute video of them dancing.

Legendary musician Bruce Springsteen has sadly announced the passing of his mother, Adele Springsteen, at the impressive age of 98. The iconic US rocker took to Instagram to pay tribute to his beloved mother, sharing a heartwarming video of the two of them dancing together in a garden.

In his emotional post, Springsteen revealed that his mother passed away on Wednesday, and he included poignant lyrics from his 1998 song, The Wish, which was a track he had previously written about her. The lyrics painted a vivid picture of the cherished memories he held of his mother, from the sound of her alarm clock in the morning to the pride and happiness she exuded as she walked home from work.

Adele Springsteen was not only a devoted mother but also a fervent supporter of her son's music, often joining him onstage to dance at his concerts. While the cause of her passing was not disclosed, Springsteen has previously spoken about his mother's decade-long battle with Alzheimer's disease. During one of his Broadway shows in 2021, he shared, "My mother loves to dance. She grew up in the '40s... (with) the big bands and the swing bands, and that was a time when dancing was an existential act. She's 95 and she's 10 years into Alzheimer's and that's taken a lot away from us, but the need to dance hasn't left her."

In response to the heartbreaking news, Alzheimer's Research UK expressed their heartfelt condolences to Bruce Springsteen and his family, emphasizing the importance of raising awareness about this devastating disease. By sharing their personal experience, the Springsteen family is helping to shed light on the impact of Alzheimer's and the need for continued research and support. The loss of Adele Springsteen is a reminder of the profound impact of Alzheimer's disease and the importance of cherishing memories and moments with our loved ones.
