Before David became a solo artist, he was the heart and soul of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street band. In fact it was at David’s house - the only band member's house on E street - where the band rehearsed.

After recording 2 albums and a hit single with Bruce ("Born To Run"), David ventured out on his own.
David was quickly picked up by Epic records in 1975.

When David's solo career came to a pause in 1980, he turned to session work and touring. Jon Anderson of YES fame picked David up for an album and tour in 1981-82. Peter Gabriel picked him up for an album and tour in 1986-87. Sting employed David's talents for several years between 1990 and 1993. Then in the early 2000s, Eric Clapton picked David up for a world tour. His first album, "Forest of Feeling," was re-released on CD in the 1990s but deleted shortly thereafter.

In 2002 David started releasing some new solo material. He also acquired back the publishing rights to several of his albums that he signed away back when he was with Epic and Arista. His releases, "Just as I Thought," and, "True Stories," have been remastered and re-released on CD and can be found on and on The world is still waiting for his masterpieces, "Transformation," and, "Dance of the Age of Enlightenment," to finally be released on CD. Bootleg CD copies of, "Transformation," have surfaced on Ebay.

Bootleg of the Week

Heldon/Richard Pinhas
Paris, France
April 28, 1981

This is an unbelievably good audience recording. Although (like is too often with dates) I can't seem to locate any info on the web about this show. I've found 2 from Bobino in "81, one from the 21st and another from the 27th. Both seem to have comments about them as being very poor quality and heavy hiss. This may in fact be 1 of those shows, but the quality is excellent. No setlist unfortunately.

Bootleg of the Week #2
Muddy Waters, Broome Community College, 1974
(No set list. Kudos to Steve for the recording)
