Danny Federici: R.I.P.
The longtime glockenspiel / accordion / organ / keyboard player for the E Street Band is gone.
Federici had taken a leave of absence from the band in November to seek treatment for melanoma.
But he returned for a coda on March 20 in Indianapolis, where the set list included a rare performance of "4th Of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)," the 1973 song that spotlights Federici's accordion work.
He was 58.
To quote one Bruce Springsteen:
They say you can't take it with you, but I think that they're wrong
'Cause all I know is I woke up this morning, and something big was gone
Gone into that dark ether where you're still young and hard and cold
Just like when they built you, brother, they broke the mold
