Springsteen pays tribute to late bandmate Federici at the Super BowlFebruary 2nd, 2009 - 2:34 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Feb 2 (ANI): American singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen paid a moving tribute to his late bandmate Danny Federici at the Super Bowl pre-game telecast on February 1.
Springsteen, who had performed during the half-time show of the Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers” game in Tampa, Florida, paid tribute by promoting the skin cancer charity the rocker had created before he died in 2008.
He had been interviewed for a pre-show coverage last week, and he chose to dedicate airtime to honour Federici, with a message on behalf of The Danny Fund and the Melanoma Research Alliance.
The singer urged fans to be aware of the dangers of the sun, take precautions and have yourself checked out regularly by a dermatologist.
We miss Danny every day and always will, Contactmusic quoted him as ending his message.
Federici, who was a musician for Springsteens E Street Band, had lost his battle with melanoma in April 2008. (ANI)
