Steve Jobs spotted at post-leave Coldplay concert

Steve Jobs at Coldplay gig

Apple CEO Steve Jobs was recently spotted by a roadie outside the dressing room of British rock band Coldplay, accounts say. The incident occurred at a Tuesday night concert at the Shoreline Amphitheater outside of San Francisco, and is notable as the first public sighting of Jobs since his return to work earlier this month. Jobs is a self-professed music lover, and was seen speaking with Dave Holmes, a TV host and celebrity news writer.

Jobs currently only works at Apple offices three days a week, and spends the rest of the time working from home. Jobs recently took a six month leave to recover from what was first claimed to be a "hormonal imbalance," but in short order restated to be a more serious condition. Third-party sources later confirmed a liver transplant.

The roadie is described as a "confirmed Apple devotee" and credits his involvement in the music industry to Jobs' computers. He confesses to having been particularly nervous on seeing the CEO, and excusing himself quickly after realizing his fan-crazy appearance.

    Well...

    I enjoyed the roadie's blog entry here, and the scoop. I thought what the roadie said to Jobs was about the best thing he could have said, period. So what, it's not news. But it made me feel good through this guy's adventures and I appreciate him (and MacNN) for sharing it with me as another Apple devotee. :)

    cool moment

    great story to include here. Reminds us that technology is more than just processors, and circuits and packaging.

    Come on...

    The guy is not even dead yet and already people are spotting him in public. Jeez, give Michael Jackson some attention. He's the one we should be looking out for in public now. Elvis is soooo last year.

    Actually, Steve Jobs

    spottings could be a positive thing. It means that he's in decent health and the more visible he is indicates that he's really alive and able to things that the average person does. Then that will quiet the rumors of a death watch.

    I love the way he spends company $$$ to bring in his personal favorite musician friends to play at the MacWorld conventions.
