Mumford and Sons frontman Marcus Mumford has opened up about the experience of performing alongside Bruce Springsteen at Holland's Pinkpop Festival earlier this summer. According to his recent interview with the U.K.'s Sunday Times, it was not only a high point in his career, but also his life.
"It was the best f***ing day of my life - unbelievable," he told the Sunday Times. "The Boss had watched our show, which I didn't know until the penultimate song, when I turned round and saw him in his Ray-Bans, nodding."
He added: "We watched his set from behind the monitor desk, then, halfway through 'Hungry Heart', he nodded at us and waved us onstage. He grabbed me round the neck and shoved the microphone in my face. Have I watched the YouTube footage? Absolutely, from every single angle. I never watch our band, but I'll never stop watching that."
Mumford and Sons will release their new album Babel on September 24.
