Guitarist Nils Lofgren, who is known for being a longtime member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, came on the Kendall & Casey Show today to talk about his career as a musician.

Born on the south side of Chicago and raised in the suburbs of Washington D.C., Lofgren was introduced to music at a young age. His first instrument was the accordion, which he began playing at five years old. He also spent time studying classical music and jazz as a child before becoming inspired by rock & roll as a teenager and picking up the guitar.

Lofgren joined the E Street Band in 1984, replacing guitarist Steven Van Zandt. Prior to joining the E Street Band, he was a member of Neil Young’s backing band Crazy Horse and also played with Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band among many others.

Lofgren has also released his own music as a solo artist, having recently put out his album “Mountains”. The album features guest appearances from David Crosby, Ringo Starr, Neil Young and Ron Carter.
