Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Nils Lofgren is a virtuoso rock musician, recording artist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. His resume is absolutely mind blowing as he has recorded and performed with Bruce Springsteen as a member of the E Street Band since 1984, and has also served as a member of Crazy Horse, a member of Ringo Starr's All-Star Band, is the founder/frontman of the band Grin, and has recorded and toured with Neil Young, Lou Reed and others. Groups aside Nils has a vast catalogue of amazing solo work. Most recently Nils has released the album "Weathered".

The double live album "Weathered" includes reworked classics from Nils' vast catalogue, new live recordings from his 2019 album Blue With Lou, a studio album that features songs co-written with Lou Reed, and a few choice cover renditions.
