My pal Robert Pasbani over at Metal Injection recently spoke with Madball’s new drummer, Jay Weinberg. Yes, that last name should sound familiar to you. Jay is the son of E. Street Band kitman Max Weinberg, and Madball’s newest member told Pasbani about how he ended up joining the band.
Additionally, Jay discussed the band’s upcoming LP, Empires, growing up around Bruce Springsteen, and how his father got him into metal. In fact, Weinberg says his famous dad was even on hand for the most recent Super Bowl of Hardcore in New York.
Max Weinberg, Jay says, is super psyched his son is in Madball. Jay even talked about how he’s had to sit in for his dad in the past, and how the members of The Boss’ band actually get down to Converge.
As always, its a stellar interview from Metal Injection that’s both insightful and entertaining. You should totally check it out, if only for the live Madball footage in the package.
