Nils Lofgren is an American rock musician, recording artists, and songwriter. Growing up in the Washington, D.C. area, he trained in classical music and jazz, but switched to rock music as a teenager. At only 17, he formed the band Grin in 1968, and played in venues throughout D.C. Grin was ultimately unsuccessful, and Lofgren began what would be a rocky solo career, during which he released a well received debut album, but others that did not garner critical favor. In 1984, he joined Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band and has continually played with them for tours and studio albums. He, along with the rest of the band, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014. A&M released "Nils is Next" buttons in order to promote the release of his album Night After Night in 1977.
