Not a big Springsteen fan, but sad indeed.

I live in the NY/NJ metro area, and the story was big here.

Hi,

Two days ago, I heard the news that Bruce Springsteens 40 year plus friend and partner (not Gay) Danny Federici passed away of melanoma. I nearly forgot to use my brakes while driving. I had been listening to WCIB (Cool 101.9 FM) and heard Springsteens "Thunder Road" with the announcement that Danny (Phantom Dan) passed away. The current "Magic" tour is put on hold for almost a week and dates are rescheduled.

Danny Federici was the keyboardist and more since before "The E Street Band". You might know his work from Bruce's "Hungry Heart" from "The River" or "You're Missing" from "The Rising" or "Sandy, 4th of July Asbury Park" from "The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle" but I know him as the man that put note for note soul into the keys and believe it or not, accordian as well. Oft to the side of the stage in concert, Danny was an integral part of the bands sound, not to be copied for it can't be. Imitated for sure, with millions of keyboardists around the world at one time or another of whom heard Danny Federici. I like to think I'm a pro rhythm section with a novice approach to keyboards and Danny was and forever will be an influence.
