Nils Lofgren Biography

Nils Hilmer Lofgren Early life and career

Lofgren was born in Chicago in 1951 to an Italian mother and a Swedish father. When he was a young child, the family moved to the Washington, D.C., suburb of Bethesda, Maryland. Lofgren’s first instrument was classical accordion, beginning at age five, which he studied seriously for ten years. After studying classical music and jazz, throughout his youth, Lofgren switched his emphasis to rock music and focused on the piano and the guitar.

Lofgren had been a competitive gymnast in high school, a skill that was used on stage later in his performing career and reflected in the name of his 1985 album, Flip.

By 1968, Lofgren formed the band Grin with bassist George Daly (later replaced by Bob Gordon), and drummer Bob Berberich, former players in the DC band The Hangmen. The group played in venues throughout the Washington, D.C., area.

During this time, Lofgren met Neil Young while Young was performing at the Georgetown club The Cellar Door, and began a long association. Young invited Lofgren to come to California and the Grin trio (Lofgren, Daly, and Berberich) drove out west and lived for some months at a home Neil Young rented in Laurel Canyon.

Lofgren joined Young’s band at age 19, playing piano and guitar on the album After the Gold Rush. Lofgren maintained a close musical relationship with Young, appearing on his Tonight’s the Night album and tour among others. He has also been a recurring member of Crazy Horse (1970–1971; 1973; 2018–present), appearing on their 1971 LP and contributing songs to their catalog.

Lofgren Twitter (Anthony Scaramucci)

Nils Lofgren Biography

On Saturday, a most unlikely Twitter war broke out between Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci and Nils Lofgren, a songwriter, musician, and a long time member of Bruce Springsteen‘s iconic E Street Band. When Scaramucci tried to take the rocker down by saying, “No one knows who he is. . . A complete joke. I am happy for you that I was able to raise your profile for a few moments after you attacked me. Go back to being a nobody now” — the Twitterverse was quick to school The Mooch.

Lofgren’s been a force in the music industry for nearly half a century, was a member of Crazy Horse, the founder of the band Grin, inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame in 2014, and his fans took extreme offense to the comment the he is “a nobody,” especially coming from the guy who was White House Press Secretary for a whole 11 days.

Lofgren, 67, retweeted his favorite supportive responses from fans on Twitter, and closed the argument by saying “More laughing. Theres your problem moochster. I’m not worried about my profile. That’s your thing. I’m worried about this country that I love. Not working for this criminal enterprise you call a presidency.”
