R.I.P. Phantom Dan

Phantom Dan Federici passed away 4/17. To a Bruce fanatic like me, losing an E Streeter is like losing a brother. Danny is the first of the band to pass away. I feel old today. He was a quiet but unmistakable force in Bruce's music. without him, those great boardwalk sounds just don't exist. "Sandy" doesn't sound like you are at the beach without Dan's accordian, and Hungry Hearts' organ solo is one of the all time greats. He was as much a signature sound as Clarences sax or Little Stevens growling whining background vocals. He will not just be missed...he will be mourned.
