'I can't sing, I can't dance' - Enda Kenny on THAT air guitar dance at Bruce Springsteen Croke Park concert

Taoiseach Enda Kenny says he knows he can't sing, or dance, but he thinks of Bruce Springsteen as a "world-class operator".
In his first major interview since the General Election, Taoiseach Enda Kenny talks to Irish Independent editor Fionnan Sheahan about his problems with abortion, calling Micheál Martin, gangland and housing.
But he also acknowledges the watercooler talking point of the week - that dance at Bruce Springsteen.
A video of his air guitar playing skills at the Bruce Springsteen concert in Croke Park went viral just hours after the New Jersey's man weekend concerts.
And the Taoiseach said he is a "big believer" in The Boss.
"When I see some of the stuff that has been written, I wonder whether I am supposed to sit there with my arms folded in a kind of a, just a look on the face," Mr Kenny said.
"I am a big believer in Springsteen, I like his social comment, I like the commitment he puts into his work.
"I just think he is really a world-class operator," he continued.
"I enjoy his concerts and OK, maybe - I can't sing, I can't dance, I can't play the guitar but I am going to go a long way if I keep following Springsteen."
