Max Weinberg's son joins Madball

Friday, June 25, 2010 2:16 PM PT

Drummer Jay Weinberg, who has been playing live with Madball for several months, has apparently joined Madball as a full-time member for the foreseeable future.

As you may already know, Weinberg is the son of Max Weinberg, drummer for Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band and bandleader for Conan O'Brien. A long-time hardcore fan, Jay Weinberg recently told Drum! Magazine, "Having grown up as a huge fan of hardcore and the New York scene, it's an honor to play with the most talented individuals that this genre has to offer!"

Meanwhile, Freddy Cricien had the following to say to Drum!: "I'm very excited to have Jay on board. Regardless of his pedigree, he had to try out like anyone else. He proved that he's a natural!"

Do you guys not know how to read? It's Max's son you dumb fcks! You sit here and hate, but I bet you feel proud putting on that Burger King hat every morning when you step out of your parents house.

6/29/2010 11:43:56 PM
Joe_Doe, no, Max never got fired from Conan. He is/was completely devoted to Conan. I think Conan was why Jay filled in for Max during the last Bruce Springsteen tour. I don't know why that wasnt mentioned in this piece actually.
