Nils Lofgren

Nils LofgrenWorld renowned guitarist (and pianist) Nils Lofgren moved to the Washington area as a teenager. Nils came to the attention of Neil Young and Danny Whitten in 1971 resulting in an invitation to appear on their Crazy Horse recording. Young then featured his talents heavily on "After The Gold Rush," released when Nils was only seventeen years old. Lofgren's much heralded performance enabled his original band, Grin to secure a recording contract resulting in three albums. As Grin faded, Nils embarked on a solo career with the 1975 release of "Nils Lofgren" on A&M records. In 1984, Nils accepted an invitation to join Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band that lasted through three world tours and several albums. At the same time Nils continued his solo career. Lofgren has also toured as a featured member of Ringo Starr's All-Star Band.
