From Eulogy For Dan Federici

…If we didn’t play together, the E Street Band at this point would probably not know one another. We wouldn’t be in this room together. But we do…We do play together. And every night at 8 p.m., we walk out on that stage together and that, my friends, is a place where miracles occur…old and new miracles. And those you are with, in the presence of miracles, you never forget. Life does not separate you. Time does not separate you. Animosities do not separate you. Death doe not separate you. Those you are with who create miracles for you, like Danny did for me every night, you are honored to be amongst.

Of course we all grow up and we know “it’s only rock and roll” … but it’s not. After a lifetime of watching a man perform his miracle for you, night after night, it feels an awful lot like love.

So today, we say farewell to Dan, “Phantom” Dan, Federici, father, husband, friend and lifelong member of the E Street Band. We miss you Dan.

This album is dedicated to Dan Federici, 1950 – 2008
