Sad news to report tonight...Danny Federici, the E Street Band's organist and keyboard player for over 40 years, died Thursday afternoon after a three year battle with melanoma. Springsteen's website has more, including a note from Bruce and some tribute videos. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking donations be made to the Danny Federici Melanoma Fund. Follow the link above for more.

Here's Federici's last performance with the band from Indianapolis on March 20th.

Can you help us out?
