The E Street Band drummer's adventure has taken him from a child fascinated by the drums to a percussionist with an impressive resume.

Suited up like it was another performance fronting his band on late night TV, Max Weinberg started pounding either side of the podium Thursday night as he explained the origin of his drumming dream to an audience at the Underground in the Schine Student Center. 

 “I was a five-year-old little Jewish kid with an unusual name for the time." he said. "I was Max. My nose was growing faster than I was. I didn’t know anything about Elvis Presley. All I knew was, my two teenage sisters were going crazy with anticipation about Elvis performing on The Ed Sullivan Show.”
