His chance to pursue a music career came in 1874 when he was chosen to drum for Springsteen, where he displayed unique expertise in powerful yet controlled drumming. His gig was terminated in 1989 when the band was dissolved. He was left out of the industry until 1993, where he was signed as a band leader for the show ‘Late Night With Conan O’Brien’. This is where he made most of his success, until 1999, when Springsteen reformed E- Street. He managed to work for both O’Brien and Springsteen, where they produced a whole series of albums.
