Happy 65th Birthday to Max Weinberg of The E Street Band and “Minister of the Big Beat” (Watch “Rosalita” live ’78)

Happy 65th birthday today to Max Weinberg of The E Street Band who was born on 4/13/51. Although many also know Weinberg as the bandleader for Conan O’Brien on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, Weinberg’s powerful yet controlled beat has served as the consistent backbone for Springsteen’s three hour plus marathon shows. Introduced by his “boss” as the “Minister of the Big Beat,” Weinberg is still keeping relentless time during the band’s recent tour playing The River in its entirety. In 2014, Weinberg was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the E Street Band. Check Weinberg and rest of the E-Street Band perform “Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)” live at the Capitol Theatre (Passaic, NJ) on 9/28/78.
