Danny Federici, long time keyboard player and key member of the E Street Band lost his battle with cancer and passed away last night at age 58. His organ in combination with Roy Bittan's piano and specifically his synth glockenspiel and his accordian work helped define the distinctive sound of the E Street Band. Federici was a member of Bruce Springsteen's early bands predating the E Street Band and played with Bruce all the way through 2007 when he had to take a leave to get treatment for cancer. RIP.
