Dave Matthews found stranded on side of road by fan

What would you say if you were driving to a Dave Matthews Band concert and saw Dave Matthews stranded on the side of the road?

That's just what happened to Emily Kraus and her boyfriend, who spotted Matthews as they were traveling to his concert in Hershey, Pa., on Saturday.

"We saw him on the other side of the road and we pulled my car in here," Kraus told CBS' WHP-TV affiliate. "And he picks up his bike and throws it up here."

Matthews was on a preshow bicycle ride when his bike broke down.

"I did not have a cell phone on the bicycle. So I thought, 'S---," Matthews told the audience later at Hersheypark Stadium. "And then a nice lady named Emily rode up in a red car with a bicycle rack on it and gave me a ride on to the gig."

Needless to say, the 7-minute ride to the show was a bit surreal for Kraus with, you know, Dave Matthews in the back seat.

"We didn't know how to make conversation with him in fact, so we were talking about his tour and where he had come from," Kraus said. "He had just been in Cincinnati and he said 'I'm taking a short break after this one because I have to drop my daughters off at camp.' He was just a very humble guy."

The 46-year-old Grammy-winning singer-songwriter invited the pair to dinner and gave them backstage passes and memories that will last a lifetime—or at least until they pick up another stranded rock star.

"My cheeks still hurt from smiling, giggling and laughing all night long," Kraus wrote on Facebook.

Matthews also signed their tickets with a note: "Thanks for the ride."

"I woke up this morning, and I rolled over and I said, 'OK, yeah that really happened yesterday," she said. "It was surreal. We couldn't believe it."

Oh great, gooooood for them. Lucky bastiges. How come that crap never happens to me?

Oh thats right, I'm a lifelong Saints fan.

Just my luck I'm on the way to a Radiohead concert, but I accidently bump a bike riding Thom York off the road, he calls the cops and I'm banned from all their concerts for life. No soup for me!
