This is a sample of the amazing recent conversation with Bruce Springsteen guitarist Nils Lofgren and myself, and the full length version of this nearly hour-long interview is in the DAVE REPORT INTERVIEW PODCASTS now. We discuss many things, including the upcoming first-ever Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band Superbowl appearance, the new “Working On A Dream” Bruce Springsteen album (out now), and much more.
One fun topic was the time he got to play one-on-one basketball with Howard Stern at Nassau Coliseum! Enjoy that excerpt in this sampler player here in the Blog, and the complete interview with legendary rock guitarist, and longtime Bruce Springsteen guitarist Nils Lofgren now in the DAVE REPORT.
It’s shocking news for sure. An original member of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Billy Powell, monster keyboardist, passes on. Read about this milestone and legendary figure in the DAVE REPORT. Plus, see a tribute to Billy in a slideshow of him through the years, and an amazing series of burning videos. Obviously, there is a right song to honor him with, and two ferocious versions of it await you in his honor as we celebrate the life of Billy Powell in the DAVE REPORT now, and also here in the blog with some tasty vids below.
Billy is a cat I never interviewed, but did see live in concert many times: Fall tour 1987 and 1988; summer tour 1993; winter 1993 front row at The Orpheum in Boston; summer 1994; summer 2001; and finally, summer 2005, here in Hawaii, at Bayfest, Marine Corp Base, Kaneohe. We stood on the side of the stage ten feet from Billy, just behind him, and I will always remember the thunder of his monitors, which was essentially our mix for the evening.
Thinking about you, Brother Billy. You were a cherished part of the ride, and I’m sure many folks join me in wishing you much aloha.
