“What’s Up on E Street?,” an online series presented by the Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music at Monmouth University, will continue with a new video featuring bassist (and original E Street Band member) Garry Tallent. It debuts July 28 at 10 a.m. (July 28 Update: I have added video below.) (Aug. 4 Update: I have added a new video of Steven Van Zandt, as well.)
The first three episodes featured Nils Lofgren, Max Weinberg and Roy Bittan and can be seen at monmouth.edu or the Archive’s Facebook page. I also have embedded them below, and will continue to embed the new ones in this post, as they are made.
Bob Santelli, a New Jersey native and Monmouth University alumnus who is the founding executive director of the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, is conducting the interviews in the series, which deal largely with how the musicians are dealing with the pandemic.
Here are the interviews:

Another Springsteen Archives series, “Soundstage,” debuted on July 2 with an interview with original E Street Band keyboardist David Sancious (also conducted by Santelli). Here is that interview:
