Thick Skin with Jeff Ross

Jul 10, 2019

Rock and Roll legends never die.  They just get hip replacements.  Today on “Thick Skin” my guest is songwriter and back-flipper Nils Lofgren.  We’ll talk about his fifty years on the road with his first band Grin, his second band Neil Young and Crazy Horse, his third band Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band and now as a solo artist promoting his new album, “Blue With Lou”.  Nils also shares some great stories about hanging with Jimi Hendrix as a teenager, doing back-flips on stadium stages with Springsteen and writing songs over the phone with Lou Reed.  Nils even picks up my guitar a few times to play some gems including an elegant “Roast In Peace” tribute to his friend, saxophone legend and fellow E Street band member Clarence “The Big Man” Clemons.
Also joining is my pal, artist @KiiArens who directs Nil’s new music video “Pretty Soon” which you can find on Youtube.
Please support Nil’s favorite charity… which helps feed school children in Africa. Hell yeah. 
Life is hard, folks. Let’s get through it together.  Enjoy the show.  xo Jeff
