Happy Birthday to Nils Lofgren!

"1953, Born on this day, Nils Lofgren, guitar, piano, vocals. He joined Neil Young's band at age 17, playing piano on the album After the Gold Rush. From 1971 to 1974 recorded four albums with his own band, Grin. Solo 1976 UK No.8 album, 'Cry Tough'. Joined Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band in 1984. And member of Ringo Starr's All-Starr Band."

Nils has always been my favorite member of the E Street Band because of his talent and also his personality and generostiy.  He's just a  nice guy!

To this day most people are unfamiliar with Lofgren's original band, Grin. They were a terrific group who deserved fame and fortune. I have their first to LPs and I still plat them decades later.
