Nils Lofgren Reflects On The Chemistry Bruce Springsteen And Steven Van Zandt Have

E Street Band member Nils Lofgren revealed some details about the relationship between his band members Bruce Springsteen and Steve Van Zandt and talked about their energy together in a recent interview.

Steve Van Zandt and Bruce Springsteen have been iconic duo in the rock and roll world since they started working together in 1965, before E Street Band. They have established a good connection and partnership as musicians and friends through their music. Even after the band’s formation as Springsteen’s backup band, ‘The Boss‘ considered everyone equal and built up an image of brotherhood that carried them to fame.

Even though the band has been through some hiatuses, they reunited for the third time in 1999 and are still active. They have continued to receive their fans’ support ever since, and the relationship between Springsteen and Van Zandt has always been banter and a source of entertainment for them.

Multi-instrumentalist Nils Lofgren recently talked about the chemistry between the two musicians. He stated that no one sounds like them two when they come together because they have an exceptional R&B sound. He said that aside from their personality, they are also great producers and have excellent musicianship, which enhanced the vibe since their reunion in 1999.

Here are Lofgren’s words about Van Zandt and Springsteen:

“When Steve came back in 1999, Bruce Called and said, ‘I’m thinking of putting the band back together, like to get Steve back in the band. Just wanna make sure you’re okay with that.’ I said, ‘Of course, I’m okay with that.’ Because I am happy to sing ‘Prove it All Night,’ we sing it quite well. But nobody sounds like Steve and Bruce.

They have that key thing, that rough raw R&B thing, they don’t do it as much as they used to, and Steve and Bruce kill it to this day. So, pass the personality, they great production, and musicianship, because he was like the producer lieutenant. Just the voice, just the vibe they have since 1999 has been wonderful.”
