Danny Federici, part of Bruce Springsteen’s E-Street Band, passed away yesterday in New York.
Federici, often introduced as “Phantom Dan” was the keyboard man for the E-Street Band and also did some killer accordion work as well. He had been playing with Springsteen since they first met in the 1960′s.
Federici had been fighting Melanoma, and last played with the E-Street Band in late March. He was only 58 years old.
Our heartfelt condolences go out to the Federici family, the E-Street Band, and of course, Bruce Springsteen.
