Bruce Springsteen fears he will never be able to impress his teenage children - as his kids find his rock star status "embarrassing."
The Boss has three kids with wife Patti Scialfa - Evan, 18, Jessica, 17 and 15-year-old Sam.
Springsteen admits he faces the same challenges as any parent with teenage offspring - and he's convinced his fame only compounds the misery for the youngsters.
He says, "One day they'll say, 'Man, you rock,' then another day they'll say, 'You're embarrassing me! Don't drop me off here. I don't want people to see you. Please don't come in the room.'
"I think we more often play the role of embarrassing parents than cool ones."
