Steve Van Zandt was, in the early seventies, a founding member of Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes and played in several of Bruce Springsteen’s early bands, joining Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band in 1975.
There were two albums in the 1980s released under the moniker Little Steven & the Disciples of Soul. The first (1982’s Men Without Women) earned the most critical praise, while its follow-up (1984’s Voice of America) was more successful on the U.S. albums chart, although neither were much of a commercial success.
Van Zandt went on to create the music-industry activist group Artists United Against Apartheid in 1985 and released two more albums as Little Steven - Freedom - No Compromise in 1987 and Revolution in 1989.
Key members of the Disciples were Jean Beauvoir (bass) and Dino Danelli (drums), with contributions on the albums from a variety of others, including Danny Federici, Clarence Clemons and Garry Tallent of the E Street Band.
Since 1999, Van Zandt has played in Springsteen’s reformed E Street Band and played a key role (as Silvio Dante) in the Sopranos TV show.
