Vini ‘Mad Dog’ Lopez Calls Steve to Talk Max and Bruce [AUDIO]

A Rock n Roll rarity occurred last Sunday at The River Rock in Brick.

 

Bruce Brunch with Steve Trevelise
Dave Hoeffel

Two E Street drummers were in the same room hanging out after a show. Both Max Weinberg and former drummer Vini “Mad Dog” Lopez came to celebrate the 10th anniversary of “The Bruce Brunch” – a radio show hosted by Tom Cunningham.

Vini called me last night on New Jersey 101.5, when I asked: “Who’s your Little Drummer Boy.” He talked about hanging with Max, “We keep threatening to have a beer” and how those early Bruce songs were created. We opened with the song that Bruce wrote for Vini,  “Blinded By the Light,” which became a huge hit for Manfred Mann.

You can listen to the entire interview below.

Thanks for checking in Vini, after a great day at “The Bruce Brunch.”
