It reminds me of when Eddie Van Halen had his son Wolfgang (only 15 years old at the time!) play bass on their last tour. Very cool.
Now Mighty Max's son, Jay, will be replacing him as the E-Street drummer on several dates that Max is unable to make. Jay is only 18! He must be damn good cause his dad is not an easy act to follow. I kinda wish he was playing the night I'm going, that would fun!
Kind of reminds me of Jason Bonham playing with Zeppelin for their reunion concert.
"GIVE THE DRUMMER'S SON SOME
Here's how the change was made uptown and Jay Weinberg joined the band -- at least for "six or seven shows of the European tour," according to Andy Greene at Rollingstone.com:
Last December E Street Band drummer Max Weinberg was driving his 18-year-old son Jay to school in Hoboken, New Jersey, when Bruce Springsteen called. "He wanted to talk to Jay," says Max. "He said to him, 'Jay, this is Bruce. You may have heard I have a band. In that band I have the world's greatest drummer, who has a scheduling conflict. He gave me your name and number and suggested that I call you to see if you’d be interested in playing with me and the E Street Band.' " Jay accepted."
