Steven Van Zandt has rocked many a stage as a member of Bruce Springsteen’s mighty E Street Band, and now he’s about to hit the classroom.
On October 16 New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom hosted a gala affair paying tribute to E Street Band guitarist/actor/garage rock champion/activist Little Steven Van Zandt. Elvis Costello, Southside Johnny and Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello were all on the bill. Bruce Springsteen was not… but very few people were surprised (although everyone in the room was thrilled) when he showed up to present his consigliere with Little Kids Rock’s Big Man Of The Year Award.
The E Street Band’s guitarist will receive the “Big Man Of The Year” award, named after his late bandmate Clarence Clemons, at Little Kids Rock’s annual “Right 2 Rock” event on October 16th at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom.
