Ha mort Danny Federici, els dits de l'E Street Band

Aquesta és la nota que ha penjat Bruce Spingsteen al seu web:

"Danny and I worked together for 40 years - he was the most wonderfully fluid keyboard player and a pure natural musician. I loved him very much...we grew up together."—
Bruce Springsteen.

Danny Federici, for 40 years the E Street Band's organist and keyboard player, died this afternoon, April 17, 2008 at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City after a three year battle with melanoma.
The Federici family and the E Street family request that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Danny Federici Melanoma Fund. A web site for the Fund is being established and we'll post its link when it is on line.
Bruce Springsteen's concerts scheduled for Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando and Tampa have been rescheduled at the same venues as follows. Existing tickets will be honored and more specific information is available on Ticketmaster and venue sites:

Ft. Lauderdale: Friday, May 2
Orlando: Wednesday, April 23
Tampa: Tuesday, April 22

Així que aquells qui tenim la sort d'anar a veure el Boss aquest estiu al Camp Nou no podrem tornar a sentir i veure en acció un dels músics més tranquils de l'E Street Band. Una autèntic llàstima! Al web de Bruce Springsteen podreu veure-hi una de les seves últimes actuacions no fa ni un mes.
