From his days as an original member of Bruce Springsteen's legendary E Street Band to his popular role as music director and band leader for NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Max Weinberg has become one of the most renowned drummers in contemporary music. Called " . . . the rhythmic backbone of the E Street Band" by the New York Times, Weinberg was a key figure in the group that supported Springsteen for nearly twenty years-and through sales of more than 50 million records. Today, his creative musical cues and hilarious on-air performances as head of the Max Weinberg Seven have helped Late Night with Conan O'Brien become one of the hippest shows on late night TV and the number-one show on college campuses across America.

His "Big Beat" snare drum sound was his signature, and for many, defined the power of the record-smashing Born in the U.S.A. album. Springsteen himself said, "Max was the best thing on the record," (Musician magazine, 1984). Weinberg has performed with some of the biggest names in rock, and was featured on the classic '70s album, Meatloaf's Bat Out of Hell. Weinberg has performed onstage with stars as diverse as Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, The Who, Sting, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, The Beach Boys, Natalie Merchant—even Sheryl Crow in her TV debut!
Weinberg is also the author of the critically acclaimed rock history, The Big Beat, in which he interviewed fourteen of rock's greatest drummers, including his own personal heroes such as Ringo Starr, Charlie Watts of the Rolling Stones, and D.J. Fontana of Elvis Presley fame. Weinberg appeared on The Today show and Nightline and was a featured performer with Springsteen during the 1994 MTV Music Awards Program and the1995 Grammy Awards telecast, performing Springsteen's Academy Award-winning song "Streets of Philadelphia."
In December 1995, Weinberg performed as a guest artist in the East Room of the White House in a gala for President and Mrs. Clinton. In October 1995, he was the first invited speaker to lecture at the newly opened Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland, Ohio. Weinberg presented a program entitled "Why Teach Rock in Schools?" His program presented a critical and timely question for all level of academia which included a discussion of opportunities for advancement in contemporary music.
