Jay Weinberg Wikipedia, who is Jay Weinberg?
Jay Weinberg has been listed on Wikipedia, and the details below represent his bio just as it is on Wikipedia.
Jay was born on September 8, 1990. As a child, he played travel team ice hockey as a goaltender. At age 9, he first saw the E Street Band on their 1999–2000 Reunion Tour and saw shows on this and subsequent tours, especially in Europe.
Weinberg graduated from Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey in 2014. He joined the New York punk band Reveling in August 2008, which plays before small audiences in venues such as the Ace of Clubs nightspot in Manhattan, various spots in Brooklyn, and elsewhere. With them, he does some of the band’s songwriting and arranging.
Jay Weinberg’s first appearance with Springsteen was in the summer of 2008, filling in for his father on “Born to Run” at Giants Stadium after having watched many other performances during the Magic Tour. Springsteen’s 2009 Working on a Dream Tour posed a problem for Max Weinberg, as The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien in Los Angeles, for which he was the Max Weinberg 7 bandleader, was starting at the same time that the tour would be in progress.
Springsteen’s manager, Jon Landau, viewed Weinberg as the “secret weapon” to substitute for his father without losing fan satisfaction. Both Landau and E Street guitarist Steve Van Zandt attributed Jay Weinberg’s skills to a genetic gift.
Once the initial portion of the tour began in early April 2009, Weinberg played from several songs to half the show on most of the dates. He received a very positive reaction from both audiences and reviewers as a re-energizing “spark plug” for the much-older band, with his vigorous, long-hair-flying style inviting comparisons to Dave Grohl and his potential for replacing his father drawing allusions to Wally Pipp.
In February 2010, Weinberg began playing with Madball, a hardcore band based out of New York City. In June of that year, it was announced that he would become the drummer for their upcoming album Empire and a tour. However, in September 2010, the group discharged him, with Madball vocalist Freddy Cricien saying, “I’m letting Jay go [mid-tour] in Canada because I just feel he doesn’t represent this band well on a character level.”
In response, Weinberg said that he had already quit the group by that time and that “while I really enjoyed playing the music, I do not subscribe to their choice of habits and lifestyle. This past August, while on tour in Europe, disturbing events within the band indicated to me that it was time for me to move on.” In any case, Weinberg said both he and the group should be proud of Empire.
