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.
