A bad week for keyboard players. Danny Federici, an original member of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, is taking a leave of absence from the band's current tour to pursue treatment of melanoma.
Charles Giordano, who played with Springsteen during his last tour as a member of the Sessions Band, will temporarily fill in for Federici until he is able to return. Federici, a Flemington native, has played in bands with Springsteen since the late 1960s, when the two first met, likely at the old Upstage Club on Cookman Avenue in Asbury Park.
Springsteen's website made the announcement.

"Danny's performance of Sandy on the last show before his hiatus, Bruce brings him front and center:

Wow - this is sad to hear. He's such a big part of the E Street family and sound and such a talent. Hope his melanoma has been caught early, that his treatment is not too difficult, and that he experiences a full recovery. Thanks for sharing the videos, ron - I'm kind of wiping a tear now, also...

I am very sad to hear this. I saw Bruce & the E Street Band recently--they were sensational! I usually don't care for arena concerts,but this one was different. They made the place feel small and intimate.

My heartfelt prayers go out to Danny.

You got that right Dave. We watched it kill my wifes dad a few years ago, no one should suffer like that.

Prayers for Mr. Federici.

Thoughts, prayers and love go out to Danny Federici in his fight against Melanoma. Next to Little Steven, he was (and hopefully one day still will be) my favorite member of the E Street Band.
