Along his tour with The Disciples of Soul, Steven Van Zandt stopped by to play The Roxy, where he had played over four decades ago to the date with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. He sat down to reminisce on the show and its all-star lineup of an audience, which included names like Cher and Jack Nicholson to name a few.

In the video below, hear Van Zandt look back on that show, talk about whether or not he’d consider making a political album, and explain his “odd” relationship with Tom Petty—you’ll even find out which of Petty’s songs is his favorite!

Van Zandt and The Disciples of Soul are currently on tour in support of his new solo album, Soulfire.
